Fruit from the Stars series is back and my god is this Sirius. A simple, but bold and delicious blend of red and black current with a raspberry to fill it all in.
I hope you all do enjoy this three flavor recipe. I do believe this recipe is finished to my liking, but I’m always open to suggestions and obstructive criticism. This helps me improve not only my recipe, but my skills as a mixer in general.
Please leave a review no matter how you feel about if you do plan to mix this!
***also, if you’re wondering about which sweetener I use, it’s from ecigexpress. I’m not sure of the dilution ratio as I couldn’t find any information on it. That is why you see “other” as the brand.
blackcurrant backed up by a sweet honeydew.
Cap sweet currant is the main flavour for our blackcurrant.
FW blackberry to add a slightly candy note.
Fa blackcurrant is purely here to bend the sweet currant into more of a darker flavour.
Tpa honeydew II is alot easier to work with than tpa honeydew.
At 1.5 its sits in the background but blends beautifully with the blackcurrant.
Cap super sweet, just because I like that little extra sweetness
Licorice and Coconut is a great combination. Coconut and Blackcurrant is a great combination. Throw all three together and you get one of the best flavor profiles I've done so far. Already vaped through 200 ml of this goodness. Let's get into the nitty-gritty:
FA Black Touch - In my opinion the only good Licorice on the market, especially for a real, non-candy Licorice flavor. 3% might sound like a high percentage at first glance, but cut the dosage and it loses a lot of its presence in the mix.
INW Blackcurrant & CAP Black Currant: Inaweras take on the flavor is by far my favorite. It's not too sweet and has the right amount of sourness. Capellas Blackcurrant helps to give the profile even more fruitiness.
CAP Coconut & TPA Coconut Candy: I've tinkered with these a lot in the first batches. 2% for both turned out to be the exact sweet spot I was looking for. Capellas Coconut is needed to give the right Coconut texture, TPAs Coconut Candy bolsters it nicely and gives the mix much needed sweetness. A positive side effect of TPA Coconut Candy is that we don't need any sweeteners in this recipe.
I like to add 1% WS-23 (10% dilution in PG). You can decrease the amount or leave it out completely, you call.
Steep time is AT LEAST 7 days. No SNV!
Hope you enjoy and have a nice vape!
Ok, before you flip the fuck out, I’m not that guy who uses 10%+ of any flavoring. The new flavors from nicotine river are kinda fantastic, but you really need to start around 7-8% and work your way up.
The blackberry from NR is really really good, but it needs some definition. It’s all body with very little top note. It’s also not sweet.
A touch of hangsen blueberry, tpa grape juice and inw blackcurrant do the work in filling out the high notes while super sweet serves to brighten the whole mix up. It may look like a lot going on here, but it’s very cohesive and purposeful.
I add some 30% ws-23 from bull city to give it a nice cool exhale, but that’s on you.
The classic summer cocktail...juicy, refreshing and delicious!
This is my interpretation of the classic summer cocktail, Sex on the Beach, famous the world over for its ability to instantly put you in a good mood!
FW Blood orange and INW Orange Shisha creates an authentic, rind and all, fresh orange juice base. The Shisha orange adds the fresh orange punch and balances the inherent bitter notes in the blood orange.
Cap cranberry is used sparingly, as in the OG drink, to slightly lift the OJ to create a delicious melange.
The TPA Peach (Juicy) adds a touch of peach without overpowering and sits nicely in the background in a supporting role.
The INW Blackcurrant plays the part of Creme de Cassis in the OG recipe and adds the final layer of intrigue.
2 days and she’s ready to go!
A bright Raspberry recipe with plenty of mouth feel. Although a dark fruit, it's brightened by a touch of lemon lime and (optional) sweetener. Just a taste of black currant to darken the berry notes without taking the whole recipe over. It's great off the shake, but I recommend giving it a day or two, optimally three days for everything to congeal appropriately. I squonk alot lately, so I've recommended a 65% VG mixture, but the flavor will withstand max VG for those of you who are so inclined.
It's a simple recipe and should give a good representation on an easy method to brighten darker fruits, allowing more flavor and depth to be uncovered in any device. I've tested with single coil, dual coil and tanks and it holds up well. Crystal clear and not bad on the coils. I hope you enjoy it. I've also tried it with a number of cooling concentrates with good success. I prefer Flavorah's cool menthol @ .5 and FW Extreme Ice @ 1%, but surely any ws-23/koolada clone would work, but beware of some slight muting.
Throughout development of this recipe, I had written RA on the side of my bottles, indicating Raspberry. Over time I just started calling it Ra. On a whim, it's been dubbed Amun Ra, after the egyptian god.
