This is a lemon forward citrus mix, with green tea accents provided by the Cucumber, Zen Garden, Black Pepper, and Cardamom flavors. 4 drops of FA Bitter Wizard per 30ml is essential (that’s less than 0.1%, but 0.1% is the smallest amount you can list here). I use Bitter Wizard in every recipe I mix, unless it’s meant to be very sweet. Bitter Wizard neutralizes the sweetness of the VG and uncovers the subtleties of the flavors. This is the first mix that’s entirely my own invention, and I’m very pleased with it. It tastes good without steeping, but the herb and spice flavors don’t show up until a week or two after you mix, so I recommend steeping it. Adding a little coconut makes for a good variation.
I wanted to make a wine and grapefruit shandy cooler garnished with fresh herbs. None of the grapes worked on their own as a wine so I had to combine INW-Grape and TPA Grape Juice along with a touch of CAP-Blueberry Jam and FA-Brandy to deepen the grapes into a more wine like flavor. The FA-Champagne combined with the FA-Grapefruit and FLV-Yakima Hops form my shandy and add some light carbonation to the mix. The INW-Cactus is there to add some tartness to the grapefruit as well as adding more of the moist mouthfeel. The FA-Zen Garden combines with the FA-White Winter (spearmint) to bring some freshly muddled herbs into the mix.
Week 2 of The Year of Mixing - Light fluffy whipped marshmallow blended with a delicate blend of sweet fruits and a dash of a little bit of green. The Zen Garden is optional here, recipe works well without it, but if you like a touch of spring green to your vape, you may enjoy it. I prefer FW Sweetener if I'm using sucralose, however you can replace it with whatever else you prefer.

Tasteful blueberry soda mix with a touch of zen.
"ripe wild blueberries
nestled under tall fir trees
sweet tart juice bursts forth"
(by Christi Michaels MoonFlower)
FLV Blueberry for its very aromatic flavor.
RF Blueberries & Cream (SC) for the mellow blueberry touch.
TPA Blueberry Extra, for the extra umph.
FA Lime Tahiti (CP) to lift the mix with a little touch of lime, It's not very sour but just enough.
FA Violet for the flowerish component of this mix.
FA Zen Garden for the mysterious touch.
RF Soda Base (SC) for a fresh sparkling sensation.
CAP SS at taste, i didn't needed it, just sweet enough for my taste :-)
Inhale: aromatic blueberry, cream and violet
Exhale: a complex flavor of blueberries and soda sentation with herbs.
Steep: 3 days is a good start, perfect after 5 days.
Before I got really heavy into DIY Ripe Vape's Coconut Thai was my crack. Shit is expensive so it was a once a month kinda bottle purchase. I had tried to clone it previously but was not successful. Then came FLV Lemon Grass. It was the missing link. Can be a little harsh at first but things start to meld and the bite dies down. Coconut Thai was always harsh to me the first couple puffs then became super smooth, this has the same thing going on.
Here's how I mixed it - CAP Coconut at 2%
1 drop/30ml FA Zen Garden and FLV Lemon Grass
3 drops/30ml FA Lemon Sicily
