Well long time no see...

I've mixed this recipe for my friends on numerous occasions this past year (probably made close to a hundred bottles of it by now) and it is the most requested juice that I make for them. I figured it must be ALRIGHT, so I decided to stick an edgy band name on it and publish it for the community that I'm honestly not really active in anymore in case any one wanted to give it a shot and also enjoyed it.

This is just a "prickly peach" type recipe that is an extremely easy vape in the summer due to the light fruity taste and WS-23 (I think this shit is literal crack and literally every single mixers "secret weapon" when mixing for non-mixers)

Prickly Peach - FA Peach White, FA Fuji, and INW Cactus

I think we all can agree (or at least we did a year ago when I was current on all the flavors out there) that FA Peach White is probably the most throat friendly peach out there, its definitely the go-to peach, and the primary note in this recipe at 2%.
INW Cactus brings the staple "prickly" aspect. At 0.75% you are getting the density, the juice, and a slight aloe note; all of these also help to further cut the "harshness" of the peach.
Who doesn't fucking love FA Fuji in any fruit mix? If you raise your hand I'll call you a fucking liar to your face. At 1% this is going to help hold all the fruit notes together and also add a slight indication of "tartness" (you know, that note that we can't actually simulate but try desperately to)

The Nonsense - TPA Dragonfruit

I mean its TPA Dragonfruit, you know the business. This is just there as an emulsifier that at 3% adds a little extra "umph" and pineapple notes. You could likely sub this out for INW Pineapple at 2% if you are feeling boujie, I personally used TPA Dragonfruit because it was cheaper and I had it in more abundance. I think both flavorings are great at doing the same thing, if you want a stronger pineapple note go with INW Pineapple.

The Aesthetic - TPA Sweetener & WS-23

This is all up to you baby. I prefer TPA Sweetener because its not as sickly sweet as CAP SS. I also think that it goes better with fruits than CAP SS.
The percentage of WS-23 is actually toned down in this compared to what I actually make for my psychotic friends. Some of them request that shit to be like legit ice cubes. I have gone upwards of 1.5% for these people before and they love it...that being said I think if you go over 0.75% you are going to be crushing a lot of your fruit notes and at that point you might as well be mixing WS-23, Sweetener, and Nicotine for this recipe because there is no way in hell you are tasting anything in that glacial cavity you call a throat.

Shake and Vape ready, probably best after 1-3 days, last forever and doesn't get too wacky after a few weeks. Enjoy it....or not

Strange, true. Good, also true. Cactus, in a candy... meh, it works.

Nice London Dry Style Gin.
In its best after two days.

A delightful strawberry gummy flavor with slight lime background notes.


Super Sweet - The standard commercial e liquid kick. Sweetener usage from .25% to 1%

Cucumber & Cactus - My go to wetness/moist adder to a flavor. Gives a dry flavor some moistness.

Strawberry TFA and Ripe Strawberry TFA - I've found these two flavors go hand in hand, and helps with the strawberry component of a flavor not fade as quickly.

Swedish Gummy TFA - Just an all around nice gummy texture. Sorta swedish fish like, but not really IMO.

Lime CAP - Added this to give it some slight tartness, and background lime notes.

I bent the original recipe to better fit my palate. I no longer had JF sweet strawberry so I swapped in CAP sweet strawberry instead. Upped the apple, m&h and meringue. I lowered the cactus and added a drop of MTS, which tastes a bit like coconut to me, adding to the depth of flavor and pulling the top notes down just a touch.

A nice almost candy-ish lemonade flavor.

Some Flavor Explanations

Cucumber & Cactus Concentrate - I usually only use one or the other in a mix, and was trying out a combo of both to see if it would make the juicy/wetness taste even more wet feeling. These two combo-ed together has been my go to ever sense if I feel a juice needs a wetness/juicyness factor added in.

Super Sweet CAP - The usual sweetener to give a juice that commercial e liquid kick.

Shisha INW & Ripe Strawberry TFA/TPA - Shisha has that nice sweet strawberry-ness while Ripe Strawberry has that almost natrual yet candyness that I enjoy. BUT Ripe strawberry tends to fade rather quickly so I used some shisha to help the strawberry flavor stick around a bit longer.

Pink Lemonade LB - This is my go to for a lemonade base. Usage I've found is between 1% and 2% for a base. anything higher than that and the juice will become far to harsh.

Blood Orange FW - What can I say, I like this orange flavoring. Probably one of the most common that new mixers buy when they build their first carts. Really has that nice orangey kick people want.

I wanted to come up with a juice for my upcoming holiday to the Caribbean using tropical fruits. I had a base of orange, pineapple and mango to which I added passionfruit to bring some brightness to the party and cactus to get the juices flowing. I added the pink guava as I didn't have a grapefruit and it works really well with giving a bit of tang. The final piece was the FLA sweet coconut which compliments the other flavours and leaves a nice sweetness without being sugary.
I'm delighted with the outcome as a SNV and think I have nailed what us Brits know as Lilt

A tasty little vape but please share any changes you think it may benefit from.

CAP Cucumber as a sub at 2% is ok, could then probably omit the cactus. I prefer FLV as it's more earthy - as it should be for a G&T but it's a tad too earthy at 1% which is the right amount for the flavour I want so a drop of sweetner per 10ml sorts that out. Was hoping the blood orange would provide all the sweetness needed but at just .5% it doesn't.
For that slice of lemon Lemon Mix is what you're after.
A touch of WS-23 if you wish. I like it without.
May try a tiny amount of mint too but probably omit the blood orange.

Profile: Black tea with lemon and a dash of honey

Notes:
So I wanted to make an asian inspired tea!
I equipped myself with FLV Eisai and FA Black Tea for the base of the tea - I feel they each bring components that truly go very well for an asian style tea.
For my fruits I might have taken the slightly safe and maybe obvious choice using lemon, but to accomplish my mission to make this tasty, it just couldn't be different.
CAP Lemon Lime just has a flavor that goes well in beverages. I see it mostly for sodas, but in my head it would fit perfect for a tea as well. To make the tea more fluent and combat the dryness FA Black Tea brings, I figured FLV Lemonade would play a good supporting role in the mix, both for flavor and texture.
I hadn't actually planned on adding honey into this, but I felt I needed something sweet to dance both with the dark flavor tea has and the citrus. I looked over what I had in my stash. Considered this and and that, but fell on VT Golden Syrup.
I discovered that when you combine VT Golden Syrup and FLV Eisai, it gives off a very nice lightly floral and almost fresh off of the beehive honey taste, in addition to the accent of green tea. Very delicious!
FLV Eisai brings some nice earthy and floral flavors to this mix, that to me makes this very authentic.
INW Cactus is there to make everything just a little more juicy and nice.

This flavor tastes exactly like the brand "Oishi Black Lemon tea" which is an asian tea - just without all the sugar.

Let it steep for a few days - 2-3 I'd say. Works alright as SnV, but the tea is a tad too strong at that point.

I hope you'll enjoy this mix!

I dunno what to write here. This is a weird one, but oddly delicious. Inspiration was taken from @concreteriver's Fiestas and Fiascos and anything by @Philosaphucker with his ability to use big percentages of cactus. Just try it and see :)

Flavor Notes

By: Chrisdvr1 Score: 100 / 100 Solo: 1.5% Mix: 0.5% Steep: 2 days Difficulty: 70 / 100

Super sweet with an earthy floral accent. Savory and Light with just a touch of bitterness gives it completely and contrast. More of a natural syrupy sweetness like stevia or agave not sugary.

Relatable Flavors Reminds me of drinking agave nectar with a touch of rose water, or orange blossom.
