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.
The Mai Tai is one of the most famous Tiki drinks in the world. Composed of rum, orange curaçao, fresh lime juice and orgeat (almond syrup), it’s dominated cocktail menu's for decades. Pineapple juice was a later improvisation, never part of the original base. According to legend, the name Mai Tai came from the first person to ever try the cocktail who shouted “Mai Tai!” which means “the best—out of this world” in Tahitian.
I made a conscious depiction, from the onset, to stick to "classic" flavours to pay homage to this classic cocktail. I admit that some of the new kids on the block (MB, VT, etc) can serve as a suitable analogue to some of these flavours but I wanted to keep it as authentic & traditional as possible.
Pineapple duo - a classic, combo of the godfathers of pineapple in INW & Cap Golden. This combo just works so well together and lays a rock solid foundation. Authentic, fresh & ripe pineapple = no more, no less...
Shisha Orange is a full, juicy, fresh orange with no artificial notes. This is a straight up orange without the excessive acidic notes (one extreme) or cloying sweetness (other extreme) present in many orange concentrates. There is a fabulous zesty back note which emphasizes the authenticity perfectly. Did I mention that it does not fade - ever!
Lime Tahity is the obvious choice, given its name!... There's not much more I can say about this phenom other than that it is a refreshing, slightly tart, fresh & authentic lime juice.
FA Almond replicates the orgeat, and in reality struggles a bit to push through the relatively strong fruit notes. It announces itself more prominently after a couple of days and sits proudly in the background. The addition of a touch of sweetener boosts the nuttiness slightly.
FA Jamaica rounds off our captivating cocktail and by adding the traditional rum forward taste profile. Feel free to drop the rum to 0.5 for a less rum prominent experience.
Sweeten to taste & enjoy!
OK, so this recipe is a remix of a fairly popular eLiquid that takes on a different state of matter for rocks. It turned out to be quite a challenge, and while there are still some differences between this recipe and theirs - I feel this recipe presents a more natural representation of the flavors.
The profile is fairly basic: Strawberry, Pineapple, and Coconut. What I get from the commercial version is a very bold vape which has a rather strange Strawberry flavor, a very deep Pineapple, and a hint of Coconut in the background - all somewhat artificial, syrupy, and 'candy-ish'. My issue with the commercial recipe is it has an odd chemical note to it. It took many iterations to come up with this recipe. My first attempt was to use all TFA flavors, but that just was not even close. Over time I kept changing and layering flavors till I got to this recipe.
I do get a hint of TFA Pineapple in the commercial eLiquid, which might account to some of the chemical notes I get. I tinkered around a lot with the Pineapple flavors over the course of this formulation. My initial attempts centered around CAP Golden Pineapple for that deepness but it just did not seem to fit for some reason. I finally ended up using a little TFA Pineapple for that twang it has along with a blend of INW and VSO Pineapple to give it a very natural Pineapple juice character which is not as deep as the commercial liquid.
I'm somewhat a Strawberry mute, so it is always a challenge for me picking out particular aspects of Strawberry in a recipe. The OG eLiquid seemed to be a sweet and candy like Strawberry, but there was also some kind of bend to it that I could not put my finger on. I tried TFA Strawberry Ripe and TFA Strawberry to no avail. I eventually ended up with using JF Strawberry Sweet and INW Shisha Strawberry which tends to sit well in this recipe.
Most of my recipe variations centered around TFA Coconut as I do get that suntan lotion vibe from the commercial eLiquid. After a while I switched to FA Coconut to get a more realistic Coconut representation in the mix. You could still go with TFA Coconut at around 2.5%. I also added FLV Coconut; not for the Coconut flavor, but to fill out the volume of the vape. I did find that the FLV Coconut did start to bend the Strawberry to the rather unique quality I get from the commercial product.
While I would love so say this recipe is very layered - it is not really. What eventually settles on the pallet is a Strawberry Pineapple flavor with a hint of Coconut that lingers on.
I developed this recipe using the Hadaly and OG Recoil RDAs. I found that higher wattage elevates some of the underlying flavors in both the commercial and this recipe (like Coconut). The Hadaly was running a 0.5 ohm fused Clapton coil at 32 watts, and the Recoil was running 0.18 ohm dual Clapton coils at 70 watts. I also tested this in a Wotofo SMM Serpent RDA running 38 watts on an 0.5 ohm fused Clapton coil. The brighter aspects of the Pineapple were somewhat missing from the RDA, but still a fine vape.
You just got rid of the dreaded virus that shall not be named. You’re obviously looking to get krunk on something delicious tonight, right? After a week of enjoying Everclear straight from the bottle, it’s time to actually enjoy what you’re gulping down your gullet. Sangria is the obvious choice. You decide to go for something different fruit-wise. You put pomegranate, pineapple, and guava in the blender along with a little lime juice. After blending it up, you taste it and fall in love. Why add alcohol to something this delicious?? So you skip the red wine and just pull the remaining Everclear straight from the bottle (for old-time’s sake). You puke all over your girlfriend’s nice new shoes. She send you to bed without fucking you. You cry and drink Sangria Straight from the blender mug.
This is a collab done by me (Qszwax) and isuamadog. What started out as a simple reimagining of my first original mix (Straight Chlorine) turned into something all its own and absolutely wonderful. The profile is a tropical limeade blend that’s almost like a sangria without the wine.
There’s 3 ways to enjoy this mix: as a plug-and-play limeade (take the lemonade and tahiti), as it is, or swap the Pink Guava for Sweet Guava and remove the Pineapple. All are very tasty.
To begin with, we took Puckenade, subtracted the FA Lemon Sicily, and added FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed for a simple yet effective limeade. This was tasting amazing on its own and instead of adding the peaches from Straight Chlorine, we went a totally different direction: pomegranate. Pink Lemonade time? Yes Rico, pink lemonade time. I had both TFA and FA so naturally we went with FA Pomegranate. At 0.75% dog loved this but I wasn’t satisfied so I went rogue and added an extra 0.5%. We both agreed that it added more fullness. So with the basic pink lemonade in place we opted for a nice guava. The original plan was CAP Sweet Guava but FLV Pink Guava is one of my all-time favorite flavors so we split the mix to try both. I wasn’t a big fan of the Sweet Guava but absolutely loved Pink Guava, whereas dog was a major fan of Sweet Guava. This was probably attributed to the sweetness of the Sweet Guava and the fact that I’d already added sweetener whereas he didnt. At this point we were both extremely satisfied with the mix but dog wanted to take it a step farther. He went rogue, upped FLV Pink Guava to 1.8%, and added 3% INW Pineapple. I played along and was soon rewarded. The new mix was a little muddled, but really good. Good in a way that everything meshed so well together it created a new flavor. That flavor? Non-alcoholic sangria. We were perplexed as obviously there’s no red wine in this. At this point we called it a night and decided to slap it on ATF.
Mix with your favorite amounts of sweetener and coolant. Cheers!

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.
