This is one of my favorite recipes to date, i've changed a lot since i first started on it but now I'm very happy with it.
Ridiculously accurate dragonfruit/mango iced tea with a twist of lemon, take a load off in the summer heat with a nice puff of this stuff, you wont regret it.
If you like menthol/eucalyptus in your vapes, try this recipe but with berry cooler at 1-2%.

I’ve been working on this recipe for a few months and finished it accurately for the Mixers Club March 2021 submission: “Sunshine”
It is started as simple mix of PUR Banana (because it is taaastyeeee) and FA Cucumber (well I just tried banana and cucumber together as a food. It wasn’t great but I liked the concept). So simple two flavors mix, but it was lacking pretty much any meaningful body and back notes. It was right there on top, not too sweet, ghostly bitter due to cucumber.
I decided to add FW sweetener. To get rid of bitterness as it had no place. I liked the resulted flavor but that exactly what it was - a flavor. Later on I thought about the way to bring sweetness without sweetener and cape up with a combo of FLV Alpine Strawberry and JF Sweet Strawberry. First for syrupy sweetness and second just because I like this tart note. It started to fill up with meaning. The base was already great. But I wanted something more in there.
I was making quite a few combinations, in case you wondering - yes, I tried Lychee flavors too. Some were ok, some - terrible. One day I saw my 2oz bottle of INW Pitaya and welp, I just tried it too. I can’t say that I taste this floral note of pitaya but it brought something light to the profile and I let it be there. Pure luck I should say though maybe a logical one, given that base has a strawberry.
I was already enjoying the recipe but it was not there yet. I wasn’t able to imagine how it should taste because it is abstract and experimental taste, not like you have a real deal stuff on your plate to aim at. I tried adding forest fruit, blueberries, pineapple, mango, but nothing really belonged. Until one day my wife tried it and said I should add sour apple there... that is how FLV Sour Apple appeared in there. And it was a success, it was so good I vaped it a lot.
But my perfectionism was taking it is toll. Tic toc mazaphuka. So what happened is after I posted it as a submission to MC I mixed three more variations. More jf strawberry, more dragonfruit, added inw rhubarb. They are all turned ok I should say, still tasty but all of them pushed the mix too far, back-notes started to fade, complexity of the profile was so overwhelming that my brain was screaming for help. So I decided to return to the previous version, where everything was in place for me.
It was quite a road for me, I liked and hated the process and I’ve bern close to wipe it clear and return to the banana/cucumber stage but it all turned out well.
Oh yes, it us called red giant because I wanted to call it like this. But if I will try to pull my poetic side I would say that because this recipe bright but not shiny, it is dark but not cold and it is just something usually unusual.

I took my own Blue Eyes White Dragon and took some two and a half years of mixing knowledge, and access to some 500+ more flavors than I had when I created the original and decided that there were exactly 2 aspects that could not be removed. INW Pitaya and WS-23. I didn't touch the Pitaya, 1.5% is perfect to give it all the pitaya weirdness without it taking over the entire recipe by force. I did reduce the cooling by 1/2 though, in part because I acknowledge others will be trying this and not everyone wants their "cold" to be bracing and in part because I didn't want to bury any of the flavors that I used.
With that in mind, I chose to stay with the inherent weirdness of the original when swapping things around. That made Hangsen blueberry the natural choice, ironically for its utterly unnatural "electric" blueberry flavor. That is paired with the fairly recently released FA Blueberry Juicy Ripe which is, by all accounts, fantastic. In this case I feel like it sorta tamps down the inherent weirdness of Hangsen's offering, but that's not, strictly, a bad thing.
The peaches I went with here are JF Honey peach, because it's fucking brilliant, and CAP juicy peach because it is nominally very similar to TFA peach juicy, but more importantly because it's all sorts of fakey peach rings without much body.
A simple premise, perhaps nominally more grandiose than it should be, but I feel like this is a respectable "re-imagining" of the original.
Chartreuse: A shade of colour; a pale apple-green.
Normally I try to avoid making mixing random fruits, it's really tough to get the balance right and usually ends up a big mess. This recipe however started out as a request by a friend of mine, who really liked a specific commercial juice. Since the name of it was very nondescript and I hadn't actually tried it myself, I only had his description and the pictures to go on. The fruits that we could spot were; Pineapple, Melon and Dragonfruit. There was also grapes on some of the pictures, but since I can't stand INW Grape it was quickly ruled out. However when I did a first attempt on only mixing CAP Golden Pineapple (replaced by INW in the final version) with FLV Wild Melon and TFA Dragonfruit, I knew I had a really good base to work with.
I made a total of 9 different versions before I settled on this specific combo, which I really enjoy. It's very sweet and I don't think you can distinguish any of the specific flavours, hence the rather wierd name, it simply tastes like "Chartreuse" ;). The final mix doesn't taste at all like the juice we based the idea off, but I'm still really happy with the end result.

This is a near 100% clone of Dream Tea by Mt Baker Vapor.
Compared to the original, it's juicier, sweeter, and less harsh.

A cool, dragonfruit elderflower recipe.
INW Dragonfruit is the main fruit note here, and standing next to it is FLV Elderflower with its unique, refreshing floral brand .
TFA Dragonfruit lends some emulsification support.
INW Cactus is there to lend a bit of sour/tart and boost the juiciness of the Dragonfruit.
TFA Wintergreen blends seamlessly with the WS-23, giving a cool green-ness that doesn't get minty. Tried with 0.5% WS-23 at first, but I found the coolant was overshadowing the other flavors too much.
Here's the flavor breakdown. THANKS FOR FOLLOWING! 😁
FLV mango paired with Cap sweet mango is a perfect pairing. Brings a nice mango touch to this recipe on the exhale, with a natural tasting not too sweet mango that doesn't have the skin taste of mango which is good in recipes but not for this one.
CHEM- Pitaya is frickin delicious cactus fruit. Has a watery taste that is so unique, its the real star of this recipe. Handles the dragonfruit job on it's own. This is a dank flavor that rides through both the inhale and exhale to give body and wetness to the mix, while not being too overpowering. Needs a day or two steep to settle down a little throat hit.
INW Pineapple is an amazing bodied pineapple that adds to the Sugarloaf to bring a nice featured pineapple taste to the exhale. VT Sugarloaf helps support this by adding some nice fresh cut pineapple wedge taste.
TPA sour is used here in a small amount to provide a little zest to the fruits
