Inspired by Mixin Vixens challenge week 23
I wanted to move away from the expected with this recipe, and I was intrigued by a recipe on a cocktail recipe site that used almond and stone fruit liquor with pineapple juice, a flavor combo I have never tried in real life. It is much less expensive to try it in a vape first, and it really works! Not too sweet and a real change of pace from the typical pineapple vape.
I used VT Creaming Soda as the beverage base and punched it up with two pineapples, FLV and INW. I tried several almond flavors, and settled on the clean FA Almond. I did not want to add more brightness with the stone fruits, so I chose FA Apricot.
Tested on a Pixie, 0.38 ohm, 40 watts
A simple pineapple smoothie with light vanilla undertones, that keeps me coming back for more. Sugarloaf pineapple and pineapple INW paired together, is delicious. A splash of pineapple TFA adds that extra top end kick. Yogurt, sweet cream, and a touch of vanilla bean ice cream complete the smoothie base. To finish it off, add a splash of ws-23 and Purilum super sweet (adjust cooling and sweetner to your liking).
I use a 0.25 - 0.30 ohm N80 quad core fused clapton between 30 - 50 watts. I use both an rda and rta.
I did update the recipe... The original recipe was getting to dry after a few days and pineapple juicy was the cause.
THIS IS HAWAIIAN PUNCH
If you've ever wanted to vape Hawaiian Punch and been frustrated by flavors like TFA Hawaiian Islands Punch Type, FW Tropical Punch, CAP Silverline Tropical Fruit Punch, and FLV Tropical Punch, which fall short, this recipe is for you.
Sweetener is optional but so highly recommended that I've left the high amount of FW Sweetener that I prefer with it in the recipe. It drives that super sugary drink experience home. You could use less. If you don't have FW and want to use CAP Super Sweet, 0.5 to 0.75% should get 'er done. Or again, use less if you prefer. TFA Sweetener is not recommended here. Coolants are optional but are not recommended. WS-23 kinda ruins it, unfortunately. A touch of FA Polar Blast doesn't hurt much, but it does somewhat distract from the experience.
This recipe is the product of a partnership in which I played a relatively minor role. I asked @AlfredPudding why he does this to me, refuses full credit for his work like he did with the Back Nine recipe and makes me be the one to share it, and he says it's to torture me. That's ok, I like the abuse. But this time, instead of merely asserting that Alfred did all the work and moving along to flavor notes, I offer a mostly unredacted report of the events that led to this recipe:
This all started when I tried Alfred's Cherry Bomb and told him I thought it was about 5% INW Pineapple shy of Hawaiian Punch. He sent me back a recipe he called "Counter Point" that did indeed have 5% INW Pineapple, but also had more Cherries, less Sweet Guava, FA Forest Fruit instead of Rainbow Candy, and CAP Yellow Peach instead of TFA Jackfruit. So I tried that and responded with "Counter Counter Point" - A recipe with little less Pineapple, a little less Peach, a little more Sweet Guava, some TFA Smooth to blend it together, and a bunch of sweetener that it seemed to be crying out for. Minor adjustments and fairly obvious additions. I got back a Counter Counter Counter Point, with a hair less Apricot and no more Forest Fruit. This was Hawaiian Punch.... but yet... not. It was too soft. More like Hawaiian love tap. The only difference in this final version is half as much Smooth as the Counter Counter Counter Point, as it is still providing the blending it needed but not over-softening its punch.
This recipe starts with a yogurt base. For this we took @EdibleMalfunction yogurt base and cut it in half. It was a bit too strong for this. I was going for a tropical smoothie. Inw Pineapple adds the fresh pineapple and the Cap pineapple give that more canned pineapple taste, combined they are pineapple magic. FA Kiwi just fit and I really wanted a Kiwi Pineapple smoothie. The TPA marshmallow adds a touch of sweetness and fluffs this up to make it a bit more smoothie like. Coconut accent and a light WS-23 really makes the yogurt/smoothie pop. Shout out to @eyemakepizza for encouraging me to mix this and the DIY_eJuice discord to get me mixing more often!
You know how they say "nothing good ever happens after 2am"? Well that’s a load of s*!t. Per usual Alfred and myself (eyemakepizza) kept Isuamadog up waaay later than his bedtime, he strapped on a headlamp and we were feeling something tropical so we went to work.
We came up with Guava, Pineapple, Lime, and Apple, and some Fizz.

So normally this is where all the development notes would go. Normally. Problem is, there really aren't any. It just worked. FLV Pink Guava is the star of the show here and it does it so damn well. FA Lime Tahity Distilled and INW Pineapple are the background flavors here, they play off the Pink Guava really well. Even though Cap Double Apple is the highest % and our original intention was for it to be a dominant flavor, it ended up being very subtle and added a great bit of depth and heartiness to the overall flavor. VT Fizzy Sherbet does what we love it to do and adds some fizz into the mix.
Right on the S&V Pink Guava is very dominant, not to the point of muting out the other flavors, but it's there, it's out front and it wants you to know it. After a day or two, the Pink Guava mellows out a touch and everything balances out but also blends together beautifully. We are left with a super tropical refreshing juice that you're not going to want to put down.
