7 DIY E-Liquid Recipes found


This week's recipe is based on the picture of Biscoff cookies. Unfortunately this recipe is going to need a few weeks steep for all the buttery richness to fully come to fruition, so it's not a shake and vape, and I may be adjusting or adding to it later after I see how it steeps out. But so far the molasses and spice notes are at almost the right balance, so long as the DAAP components of several of these flavors steep out. It doesn't currently have a lot of Baked flavor, if those notes don't come out I may add some FA cookie or some VTA Biscuit base...but I was trying to use the least amount of flavorings I could to achieve the recipe taste I am looking for. Right now it's more like the biscoff cookie butter to me, which was also a recipe I wanted to do too. If the baked part doesn't come out enough after the steep I am going to consider this recipe to be the cookie butter version of these cookies, and will not down here in the description if I do anything to change it to make it more of a baked cookie.

mixed fruits and greek yogurt - I added the whipped cream because I figured it would add a more interesting mouthfeel?? idk and then toasted almonds and brown sugar also for interest

an interesting combination of pistachio, peach and pecan that blends perfectly in a mild creamy bread pudding base.

This is a lava flow clone that nails the burnt sugar clouds of the original!

The strawberry trio is well balanced with Capella's Golden Pineapple and the coconut is just on the edge of too much but isn't.

The dragon fruit and tangerine are there to enhance the strawberries and pineapple so can probably be subbed with other juicy poppers.

I think I've really nailed the sweetness - you saw OOO's burnt sugar in a lava flow clone here first! With the TPA Brown Sugar its got that dark sweet body like the original. Sweetener is added for sweetness without blowing your coil.

Last but not least, I believe all the ingredients are DX - please let me know if you know otherwise.

Enjoy!

"Winter is coming....."

Nothing warms you better than a Bourbon cocktail. My favorite is the Old-Fashioned. It's a time-tested recipe that is sure to please in any of it's myriad variations. Not coincidentally, it translates PERFECTLY to vapor. This profile lives for olfactory application. It's beauty is in it's ingredient simplicity yielding complex flavor results. Ever since it came together, I cant stop vaping it. It gets better every day.

This iteration is a spicier one, as it is modeled after a recipe using brown sugar and Angostura bitters. The cornerstone is the duality of TFA Kentucky Bourbon, and a touch of FA Vanilla Bourbon. I've found the FA adds a subtle high note to an otherwise perfect TFA offering. This bourbon combo leaves room for the real beauty of an Old-Fashioned: What lies "beneath"......those subtle aromatics, earthy spices, herbal undertones, citrus, and ripe fruit notes peeking from below.

Nothing overpowering, just fragrant hints vying for your attention. Their friendly interplay is essential to make the recipe equate to more than the sum of it's parts.

This recipe is using an aftermarket dilution of 10% INW Shisha Punch in PG solution. (To make dilution: Simply add 1mL flavoring to 9mL of plain PG.)

Our aromatics are chiefly INW Shisha Punch (see note ). A grossly under-appreciated flavoring that is pretty tasty on it's own around 0.5%. With notes of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, nutmeg, star-anise, and then some. Shisha Punch stands in for the quintessential aromatic bitters. The only lacking component from the flavoring is, perhaps, vanilla. Thus, a boost of TFA Vanilla Swirl is used to fill that missing space in the Angostura puzzle. It adds straight vanilla, and rounds out some edges with it's light creaminess. This is no place for an egg-laden bakery vanilla.

We're left with our simple muddled ingredients: TFA DX Brown Sugar, FW Blood Orange, Sucralose, Ethyl Maltol, and FA Lime Tahiti DISTILLED (NOT Cold-Pressed!).

(The DX Brown Sugar can be subbed with regular Brown Sugar Extra. However, the DX version can hold up to higher temperatures without imparting nasty burnt notes.)

Naturally, DX Brown Sugar and Blood Orange stand in for the orange-peel and brown sugar, with the Distilled lime an added feature to liven the citrus tone. FW Blood Orange, and FA Distilled Lime Tahity are hard to sub, as they possess so much of that oily, spicy quality of an actual citrus rind. The Sucralose/EM combo represents the simple syrup component. With that, we're off to the races.

Now you're ready to vape like a fancy man. Grease up that handlebar 'stache! Hope to see other variations on this simple concept. Cheers, my fellow mixers!
