This Mix was done for Our 1st live episode using FLV Berry Blend. We talked about FLV Berry Blend in a live show - https://youtu.be/BYKq4D3Fh6o
I wanted to see if I could mix Berry Blend as the main profile into something familiar that Ive done before.
I was going for a Berry forward beverage, I am not sure that its full on Berry as I think its needs a Steep **Will update this later
The Combination of Ice and Citrus soda serves as my effervescent beverage or liquid base. Then I added the Moscato to freshen this up with a vibrant tart white grape in the middle.
Dragon fruit and Fuji added in combo to sweeten and emulsify these flavors together.
This is a Pretty weird mix, but I keep reaching for it for another puff. I dont think this is for everyone, but if you like weird stuff you might like this.
Almost reminds me of this weird "Sour Alien Spray candy" I had as a kid.
I think the weirdness will mellow out a bit after 3 days, will update.
Add if you like sweet stuff, Dont if you dont :-)
THIS RECIPE IS NOT DONE! THERE WILL BE SOME CHANGES.
My version of this Guava Candy includes a drop of Super Sweet per 15ml. The flavors are pretty sweet on their own but feel free to add to your liking.
After a shake it is, for me, a funky, cartoonish and candy-like sweet guava. With a little cactus tingle on the exhale. After a day or two the flavors blend together to a more cohesive guava candy. I can only describe it as a Funky Guava.
Personally, I did't notice a difference between 2-3 days and a 1,5 week steep. Curious how it wil fade/evolve after a longer steep though.
Inspiration from ENYAWREKLAW's Sweet Guava Flavorbook entry recipe & RockeyHarlow's Burst Duo Guava Dragonfruit (Somewhat Close) Clone.
If requested by ENYAWREKLAW of RockeyHarlow I will take the recipe down. Because I am not sure if I posted the recipe correctly
I mixed over 20 versions with different Strawberry & Dragonfruit combos and this was the best and most balanced one for me.
Since I really like TFA Dragonfruit so much, I made the journey to find another alternative that may be better.
From CAP, FA, INW, FW, VTA and so on, I always came back to TFA. I simply love it.
Sweetener is not necessary but if needed I would recommend you to use TFA Cotton Candy (it just tastes damn good with TFA Dragonfruit).
A Custard version will follow soon!
My entry for mixer's club from the reddit diy ejuice for dec '18. I was surprised by the reception that was positive. This is still a work in progress because I feel like there's still some places I'd like to take this especially based on the feedback I got.
FA Gin & Blackcurrant. This started right out of the box with a pairing of FA Gin and Black Currant. If you want a simple berry cocktail, I'd try FA gin at 2% with Black currant at 1%. I enjoyed this for some time because I felt the citrus notes gave me a grapefruit-y feel and I decided to pursue that in adding the next layers. To me, this has been my base start for all my gin drinks. FA Gin is described as juniper heavy and booze light. I love it. i bumped it up to 3% here because at 2% with the other flavors it just wasn't shining through enough. In simpler mixes, I always keep it at 2%.
CAP Mixed berry & TPA DragonFruit - This was added to give a nondescript boost to the berry flavor in the profile and add a touch of sweetness. DF was added because the whole thing got too dry. You could probably swap the MB with different fruits for a change and DF out with whatever you prefer to use to add juiciness. I went with tried and true and it worked fine enough I didn't feel the need to uncover those rocks.
CAP Sweet Guava - added to boost the grapefruit notes, sweetness and to play off the berries. I think it worked well here and probably wouldn't swap it out, myself. It maybe wasn't as successful in boosting the grapefruit notes as it was in just making this a more rounded vape.
INW Lemon Mix & FA Lime Tahity CP - This ratio (0.25:0.5) is my standard lemon/lime wedge for drinks. It's aggressive and lasts through a steep, (though the lime fades more for me). This is swappable in my opinion. DIY, baby.
Coolant - I felt Polar blast worked well here. Adjust to taste.
Variant: Adding 2-3% VT Botanical Gin and lowering FA Gin to 2% makes this a much boozier vape. Adding 2% VT tonic water for a more realistic cocktail taste but without that effervescent pop.
Enjoy and leave feedback/suggestions as you like. It's always appreciated.
You know me, I go in blind and figure it out as I go. This works for me for now, so we'll see if I can't improve upon it later. Knowing me, this will be average at best until I hit version 26, so do what you want with this shitpost.
Basic idea was to work with a bunch of ambiguous flavors in order to create something reminiscent of a white gummy bear soda. It's on the way there. Notes below.
CAP Silverline 27 Bears - this shit is interesting. I've played around with it a bunch in the last two weeks I've had it, and there's a lot you can do with it. Low percentages just gives a candy citrus note, while the higher it's pushed, the more we get a sort of "white gummy bear" suggestion. It's moderately smooth, pretty low on the chemical taste (good job Capella, you gave us an all in one candy that doesn't taste like the piss from a Chernobyl victim), and has some nice mixed fruit flavor. It's still very citrus/pineapple forward, but there's hints of everything in here. At 4%, it holds weight in the mix as the gummy bear base.
TPA Dragonfruit / INW Dragonfruit - so to play off the pineapple notes of a white gummy bear, without actually using a pineapple flavor, TPA Dragonfruit is the way to go. I find that a lot of the pineapple options really overpower any mix that they're in, so I wanted to accentuate that profile without obliterating the mix. TPA Dragonfruit has some really nice ambiguity to it as you push it's limits. Instead of using it here as a way to bind flavors together or accent other flavors, it's actually being used to add to the citrus/pineapple profile. Using INW Dragonfruit provides us with a bit more body and depth, as that flavor is significantly more "realistic." With that, we get some mouthfeel, a little bit of suggested creaminess, which is crucial to preventing this recipe from just being akin to licking a car battery.
VT Fizzy Sherbet / FW Beetle Juice - so these two work together nicely to create our soda base. VT Fizzy Sherbet is a delicious lemon-lime soda profile, feels oddly similar to if you added Sprite or 7-Up to some sort of fruit punch. While it isn't simply a lemon-lime soda, it definitely gives us a bit of bite and, well, fizziness to the recipe. FW Beetle Juice is here to fill in the gaps and provide a little extra full fruit flavor to prevent the onslaught of pineapple and citrus. I've found in previous recipes that FW Beetle Juice does a great job at filling in the gaps and adding some depth to TPA Dragonfruit, and that's exactly what it's doing here. If anything, I believe we can push this even higher in future attempts, while dialing back a bit on the Dragonfruit(s)/27 Bears.
CAP Super Sweet - I've seen the light last year, and 2019 is no exception. In recipes like this, adding some Super Sweet helps round out some of the harsh edges. Adjust percentage to your own preference, but this seems like a mix that really could benefit from even more sweetener. We'll see.
OPTIONAL - WS-23 - I made the recipe, and it's a fruity one, so obviously I'm adding 0.75% WS-23. You don't need to, but a little bit of this will definitely add to the "soda" aspect of the mix.
Alright, do what you want with this. I needed something new to vape, and this does what I needed. You all already know I dial in 95% of the shit that I post on here, so don't take it too seriously.
Profile - Juicy and authentic watermelon mixed with a combination of red berries
FLV Watermelon / FLV Wild Melon - I find FLW Watermelon a very forgiving flavour. It can be used at low percentages as an additive role or as the main role. At 4%, stays right at the front note without messing the overall balance of the profile. It's the only watermelon I enjoy because it's authentic, juicy and doesn't fade so much especially at this percentage. Next, FLV Wild Melon to give a little more body to the Watermelon itself.
TPA Dragonfruit / TPA Honeydew - Both flavours make this profile even juicier and TPA Dragonfruit helps a lot here creating a bond between the watermelon and the berries.
FA Forest Mix / CAP Harvest Berry - Both percentages for my taste are just enough to be present in this profile. If I go higher, I start to get plastic off-notes especially with CAP Harvest Berry. Combined, the blackcurrant and the raspberry are present while the blueberry and the strawberry note stays right at the back being slightly present aswell.
CAP Super Sweet - Optional here but in this case, creates a more full mouthfeel.
