I cant tell a lie. I am not very good at explaining myself or how flavors do or dont work together. So I will tell a story instead.
I told a more experienced mixer what I wanted to create. So she shot me a recipe. A pretty dam good one I might add. The first version was a little to strong for me but i like it enough to try and make it suitable for me. I tryed many versions and this one came out just right for me. Thank You!!!
Jumping on the 1-2-3 train with a fizzy, sweet strawberry melon drink. If you prefer, think of it as a blended non-alcoholic beverage using fruit puree- either way it's pretty tasty.
Fizzy Sherbet brings the bubbles and makes this into a drink.
Red Touch (strawberry) is the body of the drink..
Wild melon adds a candied quality to the strawberry. and gives it a pleasant melon flavor in the background.
A simple 3 flavor recipe that I enjoy in MTL tanks. Basically a strong licorice vape with a candy like strawberry undertone wafting through. I get the strawberry flavors on the initial exhale with the licorice filling in at the end of the vape and lingering on.
I tested several Licorice flavors before selecting TFA Absinthe. FlavorArt Black Touch was too light in flavor and when you increased the percentage it went floral. FlavorArt Anise had a nice Licorice flavor but too creamy and did not increase in flavor linearly. Jungle Flavors Aniseed also had a good Licorice note, but when increased I got hints of Play-Doh which was too distracting. Flavor West Black Licorice was very good, but too soft for what I was looking for. TFA Absinthe really hit the mark with a strong Licorice forward flavor. Flavor West Black Licorice would probably be a good substitute if you are looking for a softer Licorice note.
The Strawberry blend was my attempt at getting a candy like strawberry with a tad bit of realism added to it. I know TFA Strawberry is a polarizing flavor, but adding the FA Red Touch tended to round it out a bit, and I find it pretty enjoyable.
I usually vape this in either the Vandy Vape Berserker or Berserker Mini MTL tanks at a 12 mg Nic level for a nice experience. This might work in pod systems, but I don't have any to try it out with.
A variation on my mint and fruit recipe. I mixed the mint base for a long time with different fruits but today I wanted to share it.
The peppermint and the eucalyptus with mint gives a bright green mint candy.
The cactus add the juicyness that I need and some green that pair with the eucalyptus.
The holly strawberry (kudos to ID-10T) gives a perfect strawberry note, strong enough to compete with the mints.
WS23 is an option if you want some more ice.
It is a shake n' vape but after 2 days the strawberries come through the mints to make the recipe where I wanted to.
Loosely inspired by one of the first e-liquids I was hooked on, loosely an attempt to create something "commercial," mainly just something because evidently I really don't like mixing bakery stuff anymore. This is a pretty simple mix, but it's really enjoyable. Notes below, but they'll be short and sweet.
(FA Watermelon, FLV Watermelon, FLV Wild Melon)
I've been using FA watermelon for my melon note for a long time, but I always found it to be a little too subtle and "realistic" for a mix. I didn't realize that I even had FLV Watermelon, but upon smelling the bottle, I realized this would add that candied and artificial watermelon that was needed. Anything over 2% with FLV Watermelon tends to get a little harsh and offensive, but around 1.5, paired with FA's option, it's really fucking pleasant. Add that touch of FLV Wild Melon, and you've got a nice, fully fleshed profile that has some real depth and punch to it.
(FA Strawberry, TPA Strawberry Ripe)
Well, fuck me I guess. I have been pairing FA Strawberry and CAP Sweet Strawberry for so long, that I forgot about what TPA Straw Ripe can do to a mix. This combo provides us with a back-note of strawberry that doesn't overpower the watermelon, but adds some juicy backbone to it. I've found that lately, any mix that I use my normal FA/CAP combo on, it just ends up being a strawberry forward mix with accents of whatever else I had in there. This combination, at this percent, allows the strawberries to stay in back to support our melons.
(CAP Super Sweet/WS-23)
You already know what these are for. I don't normally like adding sweetener, but given that I was going for a more commercial idea here, I added two drops to a 20ml, and it's perfect. Brings some extra brightness to the fruits, while giving a little more mouthfeel overall. Just sweetness, obviously, but it's the right amount. WS-23 can be used to your liking, but 1% is a little too much, 0.5 - 0.75% will be perfect and not mute the fruits in the mix with ice.
No need to steep, just mix up, shake up, and enjoy. I've been gone for a while, I hope you fuckers missed me.
Here is another 2 ingredient recipe. Mouthfeel is full and a rich vanilla custard is the initial flavor with the vanilla sweetened strawberry on the exhale and a tasty treat when you open your mouth and let it breathe. This needs a 2-5 day steep. When it turns a rich rose color it is ready. Lovely CAP Vanilla custard for that rich base and FA Red Touch to give it a nice strawberrylicious balance. This is another of my ADV's. Easy and delicious, but it needs the steep!
Yet another sweet strawberry. I wanted to mix up a standalone of my realistic strawberry base I made up some time ago, but with a little flair. What better way to enjoy a fresh strawberry than with a touch of powdered sugar coating it? The powdered sugar bit is a bit strange to translate into a vape as it's basically just textured sweetness. I may try to come up with something to use as an accent to bring that bit of texture out a bit more but this is enjoyable as is. Fresh, sweet and realistic strawberry. Shake & vape approved.
RF Strawberry - A little lighter of a flavor but provides the great tasting realistic notes of the strawberry. Those nice fleshy tones and bits of seedy skin come out nicely. However it is lacking in the body. Can be used to add a touch more realism to another strawberry flavor or as the base for a very realistic flavor.
FA Red Touch - Gives a nice bit of sweet body to the mix. I get more of the syrup/candy vibes off of this flavor. Used at 2% it fills out the middle and brings some more natural sweetness to the mix.
TFA Strawberry Ripe - Another realistic strawberry but some say they cannot taste it. It does well in this mix as more of an accent, helping to blend the other two flavors together into something very tasty and realistic. Can be used much higher if desired as a standalone or to replace the RF. In this case it holds strong to tie everything together and give a bit of a pop to everything.
OOO Powdered Sugar - A nice, light dusting of powdered sugar. A bit of a sweeter touch to the blend without that overboard sugar lips feeling of Super Sweet. 1% is the first amount I tried this at and it seemed to just work. Bringing out the actual powdered sugar texture is kind of tricky but the flavor is there. If you really want to sub this with something else, I would probably use something like FLV Sweetness, FW Sweetener or even TFA Sweetener. The TFA Sweetener could be interesting due to the EM content. That could help blend the different strawberries together but could also mute some of their nuances. CAP Super Sweet is a last resort sub, in my opinion. But should be fine. Just start low if subbing. Maybe around 0.25-0.5%. You can always add more, but you can't take it out once it's in.
Could do well to add a touch of cooling, if it's your thing. Something like 0.25% WS-23 would really help the flavors pop and chill the vape.
The default in this area is "No Description" and it fits. I cannot describe this flavor and I have not met anyone else who can either. I would not presume to compare this recipe to Grack but it does have some of the the same enigmatic flavor and mouthfeel characteristics as that famous juice. The recipe needs a 3 week steep to be at its finest. When it turns gold it is ready to go. It will also work very well with nic up to 12mg, I have not tried it above 12. Would welcome your thoughts.
The Year of Mixing Week 43 - Spooky Halloween Eye Ball Cupcakes.
I decided the cake was going to be a fruity chocolate cake with a blending of CAP Cupcake, FLV Red Velvet, and TFA Ruby Chocolate. The ruby chocolate has that hint of fruitiness to it so that it ties in the red velvet into the strawberry flavored frosting and the light coconut red colored drizzle on top. A touch of marzipan let's you know you're eating those little marzipan candy props ( the eyeball and knife in the cupcake) and the FW bavarian cream just acts as a rich blender to bring all the flavors to a smooth creamy exhale.
A touch of sweetness is listed, but you can feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer or non at all. IF you forgo any sweetener, I suggest putting in 0.5% FA Juicy Strawberry to sweeten it up a bit more beyond what the Marzipan is doing in this recipe. You want it to be sweet, it's a cupcake after all.
It's okay off the shake, at least it's vapeable, but it is a tad dry to start out with. As it steeps the dryness of the chocolate lessens as the creams and cakes start to develop more. I suggest a 2 week minimum steep, but 3 to 4 weeks works better.

A full-flavored Raspberry/Strawberry mix after 5-days steeping.
The Phillipine Mango gives this mix more body. Lemon Meringue makes it "pop". And Peach adds a layer of juiciness.
A tad harsh for the 1st three days. I steeped mine 5 days. 3 months in, still extremely flavorful.
