There is snow on the ground here in Midwest, USA and I can't fathom a more perfect time to post this recipe for a nice glass of cool grape lemonade. The best grape that I found (that I personally have experience with anyway) to work in a lemonade is INW Grapes, sitting right at 4% here. This is a bit high for this particular flavor but we need to push it to its limit to keep up against that powerful wall of lemon goodness that is our lemonade base.
We create said lemonade by blatantly stealing Vurve's base from his Best Damn Pink Lemonade recipe, namely the 6% LA Lemonade and 0.75% FA Lemon Sicily. It works so well that we don't have to look any farther, for now there is no need to reinvent the wheel.
We must also add a little cooling to make it a lemonade and not a grape lemonheads candy. WS23 is my personal go to at 0.15% in this instance. You can go higher and turn this into a full blown slushy type mix if you desire, but that's a little too hardcore for my liking.
Sweetener is optional as always, though it does add a little bump to the overall sweetness of the mix and seems to round everything off pretty well.
As all lemonades go, it's better fresh, after a week or so the lemon drops off heavily. I don't mix more than I can vape in about 4 or 5 days. Mix before bed and enjoy in the morning.
Mixed for the flavor _pro year of mixing The picture was the inspiration for this mix
Ice wine is a type of dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. This allows for a more concentrated grape juice to develop. The grapes' must is pressed from the frozen grapes, resulting in a smaller amount of more concentrated, very sweet wine .
On the inhale you get a syrup sweet mixed grape note that transitions to a sweet apple and ends with a light cherry tartness, that lingers. This is best vaped at 50 - 60 watts on an RDA
INW GRAPE is a sweet thick syrupy mixed grape that is the main grape profile here
INW SPARKLIG WINE is a brighter grape and has a syrup finish that coats and lingers which is characteristic of a an actual ice wine.
CONCORD GRAPE was used for its addition of stevia sweetener which I happen to like with certain fruits over super sweet. It adds some of the darker grape notes in this mix
INW TWO APPLES The apple sits in the middle in this mix. it is an accent note as many white wines have an apple note that is even more concentrated in an ICE wine. This note builds off the apple note in the sparkling wine.
CAP TART CHERRY is used for a light tart cherry finish that lingers , and helps to contrast some of the sweetness in this mix and I really am enjoying its use in this mix.
VT GOLDEN SYRUP us used for body and mouth feel that an actual ICE WINE has and it does that very well in this mix
NOTES this is sweet but if you are looking for a more I would use a drop of two of CAP Super sweet.
I tried this mix with VT ICED grape and I just did not care for the koolada effect i was getting and prefer this much more with WS 23 if that is something you would prefer.
