So for the virtual mixing for May's mixer's club (May 2020), I got Kopel, who wanted...well...
"Cocktails! Whiskey drinks are my favorite and since I can't go out for drinks right now this is my escapism"
As a devout vodka guy (mostly), the closest I get to whiskey is jack and coke, or if the joint (or plane) is fancy enough, Jack and ginger (preferred with honey jack)...so I had to look around the net.
Then I found the Whiskey Smash.
Then I found a variant that was made with cucumber and mint muddled with a LOT of limeade, and garnished with lime wedges.
With all that green, and whiskey...30 more seconds on the internet of searching for an image, and I bring you the Smashed Hulk. Because sometimes, the jokes write themselves.
Great off the shake, thought it hit perfection at day 3, and just stays beautiful, even 2 weeks later.
My attempt at a peach moonshine. The LB peach is not my favorite, but it sits nice with the whiskey flavorings in this recipe and it adds a depth to the TFA juicy peach that gave me the idea for this recipe. Several drops of TFA Kentucky Bourbon and a couple of drops of FA Whisky later I had a smile on my face. Kick up the LB Peach to 4% and you get a very pronounced "baked in whiskey" peach flavor. I've been vaping this in my Mjolnir with a .25 ohm N80 fused clapton and in my Apocalypse 25 with a .15 ohm N80 fused clapton setup. Enjoy.
This is a Pumpkin Ale / Lager vape, with notes of cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and tea leaf. Very light on the punkn spice, though a touch of FW or FLV Pumpkin Spice can add some extra zing. I still want to pull a bit more of a hoppy/yeasty beer note from this, but for now, this is great. Check it out.
Touching base with an old friend recently, he expressed his long love affair with Castle Long. It was an old profile that I hadn't visited in a very long time. Being who I am I couldn't resist a take on the old versions we've all tried and try to do something a bit bigger and a bit bolder with it.
The Coconut: While I'm fairly positive the original used TPA Coconut Extra, I feel like it goes too quickly to hand lotion without a ridiculously long steep, and it's just less forgiving. TPA Coconut Candy is creamier, sweeter, and frankly just better all around IMO. At 5% it's bold, bright, and doesn't fade behind the wall of other stuff we got going on here.
The Almond: It's two parts here, with TPA Toasted Almond leading the way, with some CAP Cereal 27 to back up the nutty background while also giving a faint bit of grain. The grain texture also serves to boost up the Red Oak in our Bourbon Layer
The Bourbon: TPA Kentucky Bourbon is still the most buildable bourbon on the market to me. At 2.5% it's plenty bold enough to come all the way through, with a little FA Whisky to give a fair bit of peaty bite to the top end. TPA Red Oak helps it hit those woody notes
The finisher: TPA Vanilla Swirl gives us a mild body at 1.5% and a fairly bright vanilla. Along with a healthy splash of TPA Brown Sugar we get a rounded sweetness without too much extra heavy background.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating it! Cheers!
A spin on the classic-ish "blood and sand" cocktail, using scotch, orange, red fruit, and vermouth. It's sweet, smoky, bitter, boozy, and herbal all at the same time.
Mixed for Jarvis's Fantasy Mixing Hootenanny. I took "Fantasy" as a bit broader direction .... because miss me with that elf shit. I'd been working on a blood and sand for a minute and wanted to find a good hook related to fiction. I could have went "Dune" but kindground has an Arrakis remix that is pretty good already. Also, I never read the dune books. Star Wars is for dorks, so no Tatooine or whatever. I started drifting more into horror and ended up on "The Voice of the Beach" by Ramsey Campbell. I had originally read it after reading someone complain that "Beachworld" by Stephen King was derivative, it's an older short story about an all-consuming beach and a mysterious pattern. We got blood, we got sand, and we got another non-sequitur of a name. FANTASY!
This recipe is going to look like kind of a lot, and it is. The original cocktail is also kind of a lot. Scotch is such an aggressive flavor, you have to do some really intense things to push it around. So we did some intense things.
The Scotch base here is mostly FA Whisky. It's pretty mild, it's a bit fruity, it has some peat. We crank it up to 4% (fetch the fainting couch) because we want the peat to come through and everything else going on here is going to need some that mildly boozy, fruity base to play off of. EXTRA CREDIT: Vape Train Scotch Whiskey is super, super intense. If you have it, and you enjoy the funkier boozier parts of this, throw in a couple drops. I wouldn't go beyond .25% , but it adds a really aggressive edge to the booze here. Not included in the recipe because not everyone wants to annihilate their sinuses all the way, but it's pretty fun if you're broken like me.
There is a whole lot of FLV Cranberry in here. 2% will dominate most mixes you throw it in, and this isn't really an exception. It's sweet, sticky, and dark. I put some (very weak but at least not plastic) TPA Cherry Extract in there at 5% to kind of bend into a heering profile, but it's still pretty recognizably cranberry. And at 2% of FLV Cranberry you do have to contend with some serious off notes, it gets boozy and warm... It's almost like we planned it.
The INW Shisha Orange is a pretty good cocktail orange that has some nuance depth beyond just the generic acidity that you'd get from real orange juice. It's strong even at .5%, but the rest of this recipe is strong too. You can handle it. It also fades a bit, so you may even bump up to .75% if you want to steep this for a while.
I have no idea why Flavorwest manufactures such a good vermouth flavor, but I'm not arguing. It's called "martini," but I get no gin. Solo, it's more of a dry vermouth than sweet, but we got plenty of sweetness in this mix to compensate. This acts like the vermouth in the cocktail, namely adding some bitter and herbal counterpoints for all that sweetness and alcohol. Is 3.5% A bit much? Probably, but we are fighting that 2% FLV Cranberry and 4% FA Whisky and everything has spun fully out of control at this point.
This sort of ended up being a cocktail vape for people that really like cocktail vapes. I'm not sure I'd try to convince anyone with this one. I've found this can be a bit much at super high wattages, I prefer it more out of a smaller rta at like 12mg.
This is something I always wanted to perfect in an e-liquid as I have always had a love for Apple Pie Moonshine. When Flavorah came out with Apple Filling and Apple Pop I mixed them with FA Apple Pie and FA Fuji originally. However, when I discovered PUR Country Apple I thought immediately after trying it that this would probably replace FA Fuji in my Hillbilly Pop recipe. Here is how I built this recipe.
The base is
FVV Apple Filling
FLV Apple Pop
FA Apple Pie
PUR Country Apple
FA Amber (for that nice fermented apple touch)
Some body for the recipe
CAP butter Cream adds some body and helps smooth out the pie portion of the recipe
Supporting and and polishing the recipe
FA Whisky of course adds the alcohol note that makes this recipe authentic. I tried other types but FA Whisky seemed to carry that note well.
FA Shade helps to separate the apple from the alcohol and helps to smooth out the recipe.
I really enjoy this and find it to be a very interesting e-liquid to vape on. It's pretty accurate and those who like the alcohol type vape will probably
enjoy vaping this as much as I do. It sure is different than most other e-liquids I vape.
To note, FA Shade can be left out but it makes the vape a bit harsher but a bit stronger. Sometimes I use it and other times I don't. If you try this recipe
I suggest trying it first with FA Shade and then once without. You can SNV but I normally give at least 3 days for the Whiskey to settle down a bit.
A pile of smashed up chocolate covered raspberries with a whiskey chaser, AKA Sad Valentines Day v2. A rework of a previous recipe, "Beat The Champ.
Same profile as beat the champ, but bigger, and bolder.
I just went with an old friend, FW Razzleberry. The original recipe used some FLV Cranberry and FA Raspberry for something raspberry-ish. This is a little complicated, a little punchier, and for some reason FW Razzleberry works really well with chocolate too, so bonus. And the raspberry here is reinforced by the berry notes in the TPA Ruby Chocolate.
Hey, TPA Ruby Chocolate. This is newer. I dig it. I dig the semi-sweet chocolate thing, and the red berry hints are pretty darn nice. The Cereal 27 is just bringing in some AP and seems a bit weird, but settles into boosting up the chocolate. And FW White Chocolate because why not back up that chocolate and add some richness. Also TPA tastes like black pepper. Fite Me.
Not really a straight bourbon. I'm playilng around here a bit. FA Whisky is a scotch, but like a fruity scotch. It works pretty well with red berries in general and I love it. The red oak is there for some char and some tannic mouthfeel. And I have no idea why the Lemon Grass works here, but it does. I promise, the lemon grass is worth it.
So, let this steep for about a week. It calms down, smoothes out, and the AP from the Cereal 27 vanishes into the chocolate.
