This is a refreshing Vape. Just in time for the warm days headed to Atlanta, GA (Hotlanta).
The Base;: Blue Energy, Soda Base, and Fizzy Sherbet: the combo of these 3 creates a great base for a Energy Drink. Blue energy is a berry flavor, the soda Base helps to boost a slight effervescent effect, but more so by creating the density of the Drink. The fizzy sherbet adds a refreshing feel to this energy drink, the citrus taste that it provides stays with you on the exhale making you want more.
The Flavor: Succulent strawberry and Black Raspberry. Succulent strawberry is just hands down one of the best Strawberries I have had. Very authentic and natural Next Black Raspberry, this is a deeper Raspberry, but this helps balance the strawberry with the citrus of the sherbet.
Add sweetener if you prefer.
Mix at: 70VG/30PG
Steep Time: 10-14 days
This is an oatmeal biscuit/cookie with black raspberry frosting on top. I fell in love with making something Oatmeal-flavored when I first tried Foo's Gold from the Plumes of Hazard. My first attempt was with TFA Oatmeal cookie and it was just awful, it tasted like burnt brown sugar and nothing else. I tried saving it by masking it with other flavors but that burnt taste stayed the same. I gave up on it for a long while, but after seeing a post on reddit of a guy making an inspired clone for foo's gold which used RF's Oatmeal Cookie I gave it a crack. The result was a great full-bodied Oatmeal flavor with some brown sugar as well. Single flavor tests were really promising but I made the mistake of getting the VG flavor. If you only have the VG flavor, you will need to use at least 8% and, at minimum, double the steep time of this (3-4 weeks total). The Super Concentrate was a life saver by having the same great flavor but cutting the steep time in half. On to the notes!
The Cookie - JF Bicuit and RF Oatmeal Cookie make up the biscuit/cookie part of the recipe. RF Oatmeal cookie is a great standalone but it lacks the full cookie flavor I was going for, JF Biscuit brings out more of the baked cookie with a hint of biscuit and backs up RF Oatmeal Cookie well. Keep in mind this is the super concentrate, not the VG-based flavor. If you use the VG-based flavor, you will need to use 8% to replace it.
Raspberry for the frosting - I've tried so many raspberries for this recipe. TFA Raspberry Sweet, INW Raspberry, and many others. All of them would start tasting like cough syrup after a while. So I sought inspiration from Real Flavors SC's again since I had good luck with them so far. RF's Black Raspberry Super Concentrate turned out to be a great choice as it's less tart then a normal raspberry.
Frosting - Though I do like LA Cream Cheese Icing, I wanted to find an icing that I knew I already enjoyed and I felt was a more full-bodied, almost store bought frosting. I had been mixing Goldfish18's Dunkaroos for a while and knew his frosting base would be a great for this (Meringue, Holy Vanilla, and Vanilla Custard V1). I slightly boosted it to help it keep up with the Oatmeal Cookie. If you haven't given Dunkaroos a try here's the link below for proper credit to his frosting greatness.

UPDATE: Goldfish' frosting base also uses 1% FW Hazelnut. I've done some test batches with it and the malt note it adds is nice but overwhelms it a little. I would suggest starting at 0.5% and working your way up til you dig it. After personal testing 0.75% Hazelnut works for me, so I'm updating the recipe as such.
Enjoy some Ruby's Oatz with a cup of coffee in the morning and you can't go wrong! I hope you all enjoy this as much as I have.
