So inspiration came from Spiders Duet entry actually, i decided to throw a pineapple in there because it sounded good and wanted to make a sorta pina colada with mango prominent throughout while not taking over the pineapple too much.
VT Shisha mango and FA MIS makes a nice and well rounded mango for me.
VT sugarloaf pineapple needed a little help from INW pineapple but thats fine.
and VT fizzy sherbet with FA whipped cream really thicken this up quite a bit and give it a good smoothie texture.
This is a cool one. It changes by the days.
So when i vaped it off the shake til a week in. It tasted like Guanabana by FLV solo. I was cool. Natural guanabana incase they INW us.
So i put it away, tried my other recipes which i liked. I come back week 2. Now it's just a tropical mix where you can taste all the flavors blending into this nice fruit bowl. Delicious still
SOOOO i finish vaping my other recipes i'm testing and come back week 3. Expecting the same tropical vibe but what do i get?
A watermelon mix, authentic with a hint of sugar from candy. The mint and guanabana seem to make the green and white of the watermelon while the other fruits seem to create this "Fake" watermelon
So now, near the end of week 3. It seems to have turned into watermelon forward with the guava making it a tropical undertone.
I've enjoyed it the whole way through
Cucumber mint isn't needed and can be boosted if you want more mint and earthy vibes BUT be careful. It can easily overtake a recipe. I wouldn't go higher than .25-.35 for this recipe personally
Thrown together on Fresh03's "Mixing For Mike" show on 6/12. Daniel TheVapeMan aka Noted Time Stamp Guy made a generous donation to the GoFundMe for VapinTrucker's family. He asked for me to make him "something tropical" using only flavors in his stash. Someone says "something tropical" to me with no other guidance, my mind immediately goes to guanabana/soursop because the quickest way to describe those flavors is "something tropical." Scrolling through Daniel's stash, I see he has FLV Guanabana. Perfect, let's build this around that.
I thought about how I'd been itching to try mixing just FLV's Mango Passion Pineapple and FLV Guanabana and see whether it makes the two-flavor banger that it makes in my head, but I couldn't find Mango Passion Pineapple in Daniel's arsenal. Fine, I get my own mango, passion fruit, and pineapple flavors. FLV Mango works, INW Pineapple works. Right about that time, someone else was talking about using FLV Passion Fruit to make Daniel a tropical lemonade and I thought, well, Danny Boy might want a break from passion fruit, so let's do something else instead. It gave me an excuse to bust out the Pink Guava. You want some really bright citrusy stuff with some funky ripe tropical depth? That could describe either passionfruit or guava. Speaking of funky ripe tropical depth, I saw Daniel had VT Paw Paw in his collection and that's an underrated flavor that I knew could give the mango in here a ton of bass, or base, whatever, really hit those low notes instead of just floating up top. For the finishing touch, I'd been wanting to mix FLV Mango Passion Pineapple with rum as well as guanabana, but Por Que No Los Dos, right? So I hit this Mango-Guava-Pineapple-Guanabana with some FA Jamaican for a dark rum finish.
The whole thing just tastes like a Caribbean vacation in a bottle now. Wonderful. I think it might be done. But I might come back later with a very similar, simple 1-2-3 recipe using FLV Mango Passion Pineapple, FLV Guanabana or another guanabana/soursop/cherimoya flavor, and either FA Jamaican Rum or, since summer is here and Texas is hot, WS-23.
SOUR APPLE HARD CANDY LEMONADE
A Simplified and better version Of my Camp Tigerclaw on Steroidz (Which is a apple slushy lemonade) derived from Camp tigerclaw by @concreteriver
Just a quick thought late at night that turns into a nice recipe. Most of my recipes are that. "that'll do". I hope it'll do you too. I'm tired of creating descriptions. I'm terrible at it. This tastes like Tropic waters. I plan on turning it Blue or purple. This was just something i wanted to mix, so i did it. My main focus was dragonfruit and wanted to compliment it. So I started adding flavors that i thought would help encourage the DF to be unique and not so bland. SO i added a Strawberry gummy candy to give it some thickness, juiciness and some candy vibe. I added Pineapple and Kiwi to kinda help part of the DF off notes. I enjoy this after a shake. I'm assuming the smoothie is gonna steep in or be a tad bit masked which is what i wanted anyways. Good SNV
Like the rest of this series, I'm going for a simple full flavored pineapple.
Pineapples. INW Pineapple and SSA Thai Pineapple make a great combo for reaching a rich pineapple flavor. WF Pineapple Candy gives the combo a contrasting candy note to support the main two.
MB Pineapple Lassi here is a further bolstering of the pineapple flavor, but also to lend a blending creamy note to help fill mouth feel. TPA Vanilla Swirl is used here in the same capacity.
After making a first version I realized it needed a bit of a sour bump, so I added VT Sour Lemon to give that just a little lift.
Add some sweetener and boom, we are off to the races. This recipe came together quick and I didn't try other pineapples. I knew INW and the MB played well together, but the SSA just adds a bump to the INW natural profile. I'm sure some of them can be subbed out.
This is great right off the shake, in a few days the creaminess is going to bloom and over take the pineapple for a bit. It really becomes a soft serve pineapple ice cream. Then the cream settles back down after a week or so and the pineapple comes forward again.
In honor of Springtime.
Mixer's Club - March 2021
I was sent FLV Basil and knew that is was meant as a task. Whether it was intentional or I made the task up, I took it. I knew I wanted to make a soda, but I couldn't think beyond conventional thought for a soda so I leaned on my cocktail knowledge to let me think outside my own box. I landed on Pineapple and that's where this train stopped.
VT Fizzy Sherbet for the soda base.
FLV Citrus Soda for a stickier, greener soda.
INW Pineapple for a syrupy pineapple.
VT Sugarloaf Pineapple to brighten INW up.
VT Persian Lime to add a tarter lime body to the bottom.
FLV Basil because that's what this recipe is centered around.
After the reviews from Mixer’s Club I changed some of this around to make it more flexible depending on the coils and wattages being used.
I dropped VT Persian Lime because it seemed to get in the way at lower wattages.
I upped the pineapples.
I upped the Citrus Soda.
I switched the sweetener to CAP Super Sweet.
This was my entry to the Developed summertime challenge. A creamy Pina Colada, I was able to create the original with a little advice from NaChef in the form of his recommendation of LB Coconut Milk. It really made a huge difference in the creaminess of the mix. During the airing of the the live show NaChef gave an awesome review of the recipe. Since that time I have messed with the profile several times. Including lowering the Coconut milk way down because after around a month of steeping it took over and ruined the mix. Also during the show NaChef mentioned that he likes to use MB Funky Pineapple with INW Pineapple and I have to agree with him, even though Cap Golden Pineapple was what I had at the time MB Funky Pineapple is a much better choice. I kept most of the original flavorings aside from MB Funky Pineapple and I dropped the Fa Menthol. I've had this recipe private on ELR since just after the challenge. And with Spring 2021 coming I figured I'd add it here for everyone to enjoy.
Good as a SNV but better after a few days.
One of my favorite flavors was Mr. Magic from BlueDot. It's a pineapple, strawberry, and coconut flavor profile but different from the Lava Flow recipes that I tried out.
I went through many different pineapple combinations to find something that's sweet, tart, and acidic. I believe the combination of these 3 pineapples brings a great flavor profile to the table where there's a tiny bit of added funk on the backend from the SSA Thai Pineapple. The original doesn't have this, but I think it works better than in the original. The original likely used CAP Golden Pineapple and TFA Pineapple for acidity, but I did not have TFA so I wanted to replicate the acidity another way.
Most Lava Flow recipes will have strawberry at the forefront, but this has pineapple at the forefront instead. I tried many different combinations of strawberries but came back to this one. The way the TFA strawberry fades after a few days is similar to how the original juice is. The strawberry fades but the deeper fruity notes stay and melds it all together. I tried different combinations of JF Strawberry Sweet, INW Shisha Strawberry, CNV Strawberry, FA Red Touch, and WF Strawberry Baked.
Some of the other strawberries taste better off the shake, but I found that none of them taste as good (to me) after a few days. The way TFA fades is exactly what I was going after, but if you're not looking for a flavor that fades something like JF Strawberry Sweet might be a better option.
FLV Sweet Coconut and FA Coco just weren't coming through enough on a tank for me, so I went with more prominent coconut flavors. I know there are some suntan lotion tasters out there and 1% coconut extra might be too much for you. You can adjust down to 0.75% or 0.5% to help with that if needed. I find that as the strawberry fades, so does the slight suntan lotion taste.
Everything should come together after about 2 days of steeping. The juice might not be the most creative or tasty, but it was a long-term ADV for me and I wanted to have it on hand when I wanted that profile. It's tangy, acidic, and sweet with some coconut and fruit notes.
If you've been looking for a tropical vape and like pineapples, give this one a try! It works great in a sub-ohm tank and I'd imagine does well in a pod as well. It did not translate well to an RDA for me. I tested on a Fireluke FreeMax 2 @ 27 watts with 0.5ohm coils.
