It's nearly springtime! Been working on this one for a while now, and I feel like it's ready to share. Enjoy the rich, sweet, and tart combinations of cherry and lime in all it's Sonic loveliness.

Steeping recommendations:
I would recommend letting this formulation sit for at least 3 days to allow the notes to properly meld together and the inherent alcohol and throat hit to dissipate. Don't expect a super smooth draw from this one as authentic citrus recipes should inherently carry a slight throat hit.

This is a simple profile that jumped out at me after testing TFA cherry extract. This flavor is definitely on the weaker side. I had to push it up to 5% just to get that light accent I was looking for. I could have gone higher, it
didn't get weird or anything, but I didn't want it in the front. I wanted there to be a kiss of cherry sweetness, and with sharper citrus flavors I needed it at 5%. Once I started to play with different lime layers to hit the notes I was looking for, what I found was limes by themselves can be a bit thin and hard to use as a base. This is where the JF juicy lemon comes in. This gives that lime layers something to set on, and at the same time filling out the mix with a nice juicy vibe. This isn't a sharp lemon like you'd get from something like FA Sicily. It's a sweet, juicy lemon that as a stand alone has a nice mouth feel and solid body for a citrus. At 2% I can steal those characteristics without pushing too much lemon into the recipe. And why not, a little lemon plays perfect with a sharp lime.
Now the lime combo I settled on was from FLV, and while you can get away with subbing out the lime wedge for FA lime cold pressed at 1.5% and still being tasty, the FLV lime at 0.5% is needed. It has a candied lime note that pulls that sharp lime wedge back a little bit and rounds that layer out. At 0.75% that lime wedge is a boss and demands some attention. The sweetener helps push the profile and you'll need a little, but feel free to adjust. I like mine a little sweeter so I use 1% FW.
This is super simple, but it's well balanced and hits what I was looking for. So if you want a cherry kissed juicy lime with a full body...mix this up.
You can S&V this (I do) but it's best after 2 days. It gives the sharp lime time to fall in it's place and that lemon move further back.
I'm not crazy about coolants, but feel free to drop you're preferred additive in here to really hit that profile


A delightfully Dark and Rich vape with cherry chocolate nuances and a touch of chewing tobacco layered on a classic tobacco pairing.

Tatanka is interesting as hell and quite a polarizing flavor. I couldn't find a tobacco that paired better with cherry or chocolate in the entire flavorah line. Layered on top of a classic combination of cured and red burley it really shines. The red burley really adds a touch of nuttiness and wonderful tobacco body and the cured just goes hand in hand with it.

Cherry Extract is surprisingly light at 3 percent and really helps brighten up an otherwise dark and rich vape. It can also really help those chewing tobacco notes from Tatanka pop and keep them interesting. That touch of cherry also reminds me of that lovely red fruit note you get from some of the really nice chocolates like valrhona.

Chocolate Deutsch lends an all-encompassing dark rich chocolatey body for everything to settle into, turning this into a lovely vape to have with your morning coffee. It really also helps dry out the vape a bit and keep it in that lovely tobacco realm. Some people get a light coconut from this flavor, I think the cherry and tatanka mask it quite nicely making this more of a rich dry chocolate back note with a slight hint of riesen.

Thank you FEAR and Graham for testing it for me and telling me to release it ASAP, and LonesomeRhodesTN Ckemist and Chemical Burn Victim for keeping it real in the tobacco world.


I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!

It's a dark, sweet cherry with a splash of vanilla almond milk.

You do NOT need to purchase FA Milk to make this. FA Cream Fresh makes a good 1:1 sub. Or try CAP Sweet Cream as a 1:1 sub. Or use OoO Cream Milky 1.5% or TFA Sweet Cream 1% instead of 2%. If you don't have TFA Vanilla Swirl, first of all, what's wrong with you? Second, try your favorite creamy vanilla. It's really not important, just use whatever you think will splash this cherry with a lightly vanilla'ed vanilla milk. 1% INW Shisha Vanilla would probably be good.

TFA Cherry Extract/WF Black Cherry Jelly Bean/INW Marzipan are the non-negotiable components of a dark, sweet natural cherry. TFA Cherry Extract is pretty much the cherry version of TFA Blueberry Extra. I think you have to suffer through at least half a dozen nightmarish cherries to appreciate that as a very good thing. It's a darker, natural-type cherry, nothing like a bright red cherry candy. It's a pretty weak concentrate both in terms of standalone strength and getting bullied in a mix. It suffers from an almost overwhelming mediocrity, in that it is neither sweet nor tart. It's flat and thin and has no texture to speak of. But it also lacks the horrific off-notes characteristic of many cherry flavors, and in a world of idiots, the average man is king.

WF Blackcherry Jelly Bean SC is one of those idiots. Down real low you get just a tease from a nice sweet black cherry candy flavor. You want more. You add more. Makes sense right? Nope. Nightmare plastic flavor and some harshness to boot. Here I just use a touch of it to push that cherry extract to be a sweeter, darker, bolder cherry. Goodbye mediocrity! If you're not as sensitive to it as I am, you can definitely bump it up to 0.5%. I tried that, liked it, just prefer the 0.25% version a little more, 0.5% is starting to get just a hair candied for what I was going for. INW Marzipan has always tasted more like cherry extract than anything else to me. It's thick and creamy and a tiny amount of it gives that thin TFA Cherry Extract some meat. The hint of amaretto-like almond it brings along just completes the milk. It's a strong flavor, but it can also be bumped up (or accidentally overdripped) to 0.5% without ruining the mix.

This is not a well-tested, carefully refined recipe like the kind I usually share. I'm throwing this out here with just an overnight steep after comparing several slightly different batches using the same ingredients. It probably gets even better over time? Unless Vanilla Swirl mutes it all to hell. I won't make a habit of this. My ATF recipes are not LIVE MIXING. So, why the rush this time? Just wanted to share one idea of what to do with TFA Cherry Extract with anyone who might have noted that Bull City Flavors now carries it and decided to pick some up. We'll cover that cherry and many more cough syrup...er.... cherry flavors on NOTED on the DIYorDIE Youtube channel Monday night, 1/22/18, at 11 p.m. Eastern.

Thanks your your help with this one and with so many other things @DigitalDrops!

Tis the season for cranberry sauce. Sweet, cool, full of cranberry flavor with that jelly taste. If you're looking for a holiday flavor this year, give this a try. Can be vaped fresh, but tastes great after several days to a week steep.

This is just a straight forward cherry cheesecake. Just an easy recipe that works with most any fruit flavor just swap the cherry and or adjust the amount of fruit but a great cheese cake. This juice is an amazing shake and vape but gets even better after a few days of steeping. On the flavor list they didn't have plain cherry from the flavor apprentice that is what I used not cherry blossoms or cherry extract it's just a straight Cherry flavor from TFA. I just felt this recipe needed a little sweetener I don't normally use sweetener but I think this one needed sweetener to bring this flavor in the game.
