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!
My Nanna passed away 26-4-2015 at 9:44 PM, may God rest her soul, she partly raised me and she (I'm hoping she doesn't mind me telling you all) she was a terrible terrible cook but by god could she make one helluva good orange syrup cake, it's been the 5th Christmas without her and i wanted to make this in memory of her, R.I.P Nanna, not a day goes by that I don't think of you ❤😥
This is my orange cake for this weeks profile pic on mixin vixens. I wanted to take this opportunity to use some new wonder flavors. I love how dark and buttery this turned out and the orange compliments it nicely. Inw shisha orange is a very sticky sweet italian soda type orange that I thought would go well with the dark sweetness of the cake and used fa blood orange just to punch it up a bit with some brightness that is also deep.
If you like the vixens and want to support is in a fun and tasty way, check out our one shots at flavor jungle.
I have several Orange flavors sitting around that I was somewhat disinclined to mix with. A few weeks ago I decided to dive in, and I came up with this simple recipe. This is kind of a cross between a Fanta Orange Soda and an Orange Sherbet. I don't find it harsh at all, and I'm looking forward to going into the Summer months with this recipe. I've been primarily vaping this recipe in an RTA with coils around 0.5 Ohm at 30 Watts.
This one started as a want for orange soda and I just kept pushing the lemon higher and higher to get some zip. I may rethink the lemon used to see if something else might work a little better. The fizz pop seems to add something nice to any fruit I have tried it with so far. The wife says it tastes like tang..so I might need to try to juice it up a bit. I made several soda recipes in the batch this came from, and this was the only one I wanted to play with more.
Add sweetener if desired
Here's my stab at your classic skittles.
Purple - I used a combo of Grape and Black Currant here as in my research I found that both flavors are listed for purple. Together they taste very purple.
Red - Candy strawberry here that's why I left off the Shisha, don't need that realistic part in this candy recipe.
Green - Shisha lime combined with Cap SS is pretty aromatic and candied lime
Orange - Shisha Orange, see green
Yellow - Went with the pure lemon here mixed with the candy portions its pretty solid in here
Candy - WF Pixie Stick Candy + Cap Rainbow candy give you a nice sweet candy taste. It really helps turn these fruits into candy
Softening - the TFA Marshmallow helps to soften some of the sharp edges of the fruit. If you like it let me know.
