Slightly creamy blackcurrant recipe. After about a steep of about 10 days the rough waxy flavour from the blackcurrant steeps out. The flavour is nice and smooth on this.
There’s a bit of sweetness from the creams that were used, yet a slight bitterness from the blackcurrant. Hope you enjoy!! Feel free to mix and leave a review if you think something could make it better. Thank you in advance and VAPE ON!!
Mixed up for Flavor-Pro's The Year of Mixing - A weekly challenge to inspire creative mixing.
Inspiration: Week 29 - Hot to Trot
This week we're taking a trip back in time a bit to the early 1900s and the pass time of the rich and poor alike - The Kentucky Derby was a larger spectacle than even Nascar is today. Ladies in their large hats and finery, gentlemen smoking their cigars and drinking their brandy, the rich in their boxes served luxury items and the poor in the dirt and muck screaming for a chance to win it big.
You've been invited to dine in the luxury booths with the likes of Rockefeller and Morgan and all the big wigs and their wives, maybe even a president or two during the big race. Let the scene take you away and inspire a juice to fit the time and how you might experience that day.
Nothings says Kentucky Derby more than Bourbon and Mint Juleps.
This an apricot mint julep crossed with a fine tobacco.
The julep: TFA Apricot, FLV Apricot, TFA Kentucky Bourbon, VT Bourbon, INW Natural Mint, and WS-23.
The tobacco: FLV Cured, FLV Native, and TFA Red Oak.
Off the shake, I get a cold blast of slightly boozy, stone fruit and mint over the top of a down to earth, smooth tobacco. The tobacco note here is extremely nostalgic for me . . . it reminds me of youthful days spent in my grandfather's tobacco barn. Though mint juleps were not on the menu, he had apricot trees and acres of tobacco. To be more representative of my younger days, I would have to 86 the mint julep and white trash this up with Lord Calvert and Sun Drop . . . but nobody wants that (with the exception of my Uncle Willie and he's been long gone for years). So, I'm going to keep it somewhat classy.
You can't have a julep without mint and lots of ice . . . so I went relatively heavy on the INW Natural Mint and WS-23.
When all is said and done, this is a cool, minty tobacco laced with bourbon and apricots.
A pie with apricot filling and a meringue top. Tasty by my standards, how bout yours? Try it an let me know.
FA Apple Pie is the base for the crust and INW Biscuit is there to give it a crunch.
TFA Apricot faded into obscurity after a steep so FA Apricot helps prop it up.
FA Meringue is the meringue.
My super villain is evil Jennifer Jarvis for making this week insanely difficult. I think I picked out a bunch of stuff she won't even be able to vape.😂😂😂

I thank u/ID10-t for this recipe he gave me in the suggest a recipe thread a few months ago. Was a good peach n cream flavour. I added FA White Peach because the fruit flavour I found faded over time. The original had a weird mouthfeel to it, Can't explain it, but adding CAP Marshmallow smoothed it out and I really liked the flavour it added to the mix.
