Grab apple by tge Melons aka Melon Hi-Chew
This blend starts off as a refreshing realistic melon with a hint of mixed apples. As it steeps, both the Apples and the LA Watermelon come out more adding a mouth watering candy affect similar to eating a watermelon and apple hi-chew. This is a refreshing ADV that I can't stop coming back to.
My initial goal was to create a realistic perfectly ripe melon salad with some chopped up apples mixed in. A flavor that felt juicy and refreshing with a touch of crispness from the apple blend. Well I over did it a little on the LA Watermelon and it candied it. I ended up liking it so much it turned into my ADV. It takes about 4 days steep for the LA Watermelon to really blend in and add that mouthwatering candy feel.
Sweet Watermelon (CAP) 2% / Wild Melon (FLV) 1%:
The sweet watermelon felt lacking in fullness/roundness. Its almost like a watermelon that's just starting to pass its prime and needs to be eaten before the flies make a meal of it. Its still good, just on the sweeter side. Adding the wild melon rounded out the flavors nicely. Wild melon is a mixture of watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon. The combo of the melons in wild melon are very tasty and I recommend this flavor on its own or mixed with other melons.
Watermelon (LA) 2%:
Initially was to just add a mouth watering affect. It did that successfully then candied it to the point that its more of a hi-chew (the more realistic version of a mamba for those who haven't had it before). I would drop it down to maybe 0.75% if I want to go back to achieving a realistic watermelon but I really like where the 2% took this.
Anton Apple (INW) 0.75% / Fuji Apple (FA) 3%:
Anton Apple is more of a granny smith style apple; acidic, crisp, and my favorite type of apple. The Fuji Apple helps balance out the acidity by adding a refreshing sweet bite. It also helped bring the watermelon sweetness out of that too sweet zone and back to the sweetness I was looking for.
Cactus (INW) 0.25%:
Adds the juicy, wet mouthfeel that that every watermelon flavor needs. Not much more to say about this since it doesn't affect the taste at such a low %.
Not a lot to say about this recipe.
The profile watermelon licorice.
Both of these flavors sound disgusting together, but come together quite nicely.
The cap sweet watermelon in this recipe as low as it is to add a salt water taffy vibe to the juice.
LA watermelon is the star of the show, combined with honeysuckle it becomes a wonderful watermelon syrup flavor.
FA Anise is EXTREMELY potent. 0.15 is all you'll need for a well rounded flavor.
Sweetener is not preferred in this mix, though pyure at 1% would be best.
For those days when you just want to throw something together that works and can be vaped right away. There's no complex layering or deep profiles to be found here. This is just an easy, smooth candy strawberry/watermelon that you can throw together in a rush and not have to worry about steep times.
This has been my go-to recipe for the past month or so when I just want to mix high VG and drip for a day or two while waiting on my other mixes to steep out.
Lemonade used is FW Natural Lemonade.
Where LA Lemonade is a sweet Old Time lemonade FW Natural Lemonade is more of a lightly sugared fresh squeezed lemonade.
I used LA Watermelon for its candied sweet properties and had it at 6% so it would maintain a strong presence over the citrus in the recipe.
CAP ILS to add a bit of sweet lemon flavor to the recipe.
TFA Strawberry Ripe for general sweetness and to help round out harsher citrus notes.
EM is added for more sweetness and brightening of the mix all together.
It's all there in the shake but I would personally give it 1-2 days to settle in correctly.
