This is a recipe I made for my 67-year-old mother who doesn't drink but can't live without this vape. As in, it's the only thing she wants to vape. I've tried taking down the FLV Bourbon and she doesn't like it as much (yes I know it's a high amount for FLV). This is a very unique vape, and yes it smells like bourbon to everyone around you but it's also very sweet and creamy. I've even gotten to where I enjoy this in my rotation. I know these %'s seem high but seriously try it my way because I've tweaked this twelve different ways and this is the only one she wants. In her words "It's the only flavor I can really taste." She refuses to wait for steeping and uses it as a Shake and Vape. I like it better after five days. I'm making this 120 ml a week for her.
This mix started out as a bourbon cream and ended up with us pouring some of your granddad’s “special drink” into a McDonald’s chocolate shake (on those rare occasions where their ice cream machine is actually working).
This mix was a collaboration between @Foment_Life and I on the DIY eJuice Discord
The first draft was 3% Bavarian Cream, 2.5% TFA Kentucky Bourbon, .1% FLV Rich Cinnamon, 1% FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic), 2% VT Chocolate Mousse, and 1.5% TFA Marshmallow (but we both “oopsied” the marshmallow to about 1.8%).
We agreed that it already pretty much tasted like a McDonald’s shake, but wasn’t really what we were going for. We threw around a few ideas, and eventually landed on TFA Toasted Almond at 1.5%. This ended up adding a nice bit of smokiness that really helped sell the bourbon that was lacking a bit. The only problem, and maybe it was because I was dehydrated, but the mix started making my mouth super dry. We decided to let it sit a few days and see if the cream thickens up and helps out with the dryness.
A few people tested it out for us and really seemed to enjoy it, but we still thought it could be improved. We tried it after a few days steep and the cream really helped moisten the mix up. The dryness issue was pretty much eliminated. Really, the only thing that we thought could be improved was the bourbon. Unfortunately, I only had TFA Kentucky Bourbon to work with, but we both agreed that FLV Bourbon would be a good fit after Foment described it as a more woody/smokey bourbon than TFA Kentucky Bourbon. So Foment mixed up the new bottle and thought that was it. I added the FLV Bourbon to my cart, mixed it up, and fell in love.
TFA Marshmallow, TFA Bavarian Cream, and VT Chocolate Mousse make up our chocolate milkshake base.
FA Madagascar (Vanilla Classic) is there to help bolster and add some richness to the chocolate.
TFA Kentucky Bourbon and FLV Bourbon are the secret ingredient.
And last but not least, the FLV Rich Cinnamon and TFA Toasted Almond are there to add some extra smokiness and spice to the booze.
Nothing is going to taste bad if you vape this early, however it does take about 7-10 days to reach its peak.
Taking inspiration from an absolute wizard, Mr @alfredpudding, I decided to tackle a tobacco recipe that wasn't so much about capturing a specific flavor but instead about capturing a memory or a feeling. This boozy/smokey/chocolaty recipe is meant to capture the feeling, or foster some nostalgia for an evening sitting around a campfire sipping at a bottle of whiskey and maybe toasting a few s'mores.
Not quite so elegant a solution as the 3 piece masterwork that is Cabin, we've kind of got a lot of moving parts here so let's try to break them down.
SC Old Captain - Really the root of the recipe all started here, it's a tobacco alright, but really it's so incredibly chocolaty that I knew where I wanted to go with it the second I tasted it. It's still got a bit of tobacco behind it but pushed higher than the rest to really allow that chocolate to cut through into the final product
FA 7 Leaves Ultimate - It's dry and sorta spicy, almost bringing the smell of the forest or firewood with it.
FLV Red Burley & FLV Cured Tobacco - The tobacco base needed to be emboldened to keep up with the booze and chocolate so bringing in this combo was a suggestion courtesy of @NoWar, and it absolutely works without steamrolling everything else in the mix.
FA Irish Cream - Partially aiding Kentucky Bourbon and partially helping keep the recipe from drying out to the point of being more reminiscent of a desert than a campfire.
TFA Kentucky Bourbon - Booze, but with little focus on the burn and more on the flavor that lingers on your palate.
FA Vanilla Bourbon - Just a touch of vanilla to help the chocolate along.
TFA Toasted Marshmallow - Adding a bit of sweetness but, more importantly, just a hint of smoke to help really hammer the point home.
Using @fear 's cardinal base for the tobacco element. Decided to use RY4 Double because i dint want Holy Holy Grail Ry4's caramel note.
Taste great off the shake.
Sippin on some knob smoked bourbon while i vape this. great combo.
Tested at 20 watts in a mtl/rdl setup.
Made this drink a few weeks back. The recipe called it a Bourbon Half and Half, more of a Dirty Arnold Palmer though.
Sweet tea TPA and Black tea FLV make up the tea base. Its actually a great flavor combo for anyone making teas. Got the idea from ID10T off Noted if i remember right. This combo gives good body to the vape, not being to thin.
Lemonade LA and Lemonade FW are my favorite lemonade combo right now. Lemonade LA is the power house that brings a tart/sour lemonade and Lemonade FW brings in more flavor closer to the lemonade I like.
FLV Bourbon and TPA Kuntucky Bourbon for the boozy note, kinda sweet, very deliscous.
Sweeten to taste.
Tested In MTL/Low wattage
Shout-out to @ID10-T for this name, in Noted's episode for Booze Drinks he says that mixing Toasted Marshmallow with kentuky Bourbon is like having "Sex In your Mouth".
I'm posting this recipe for every mixer that loves bourbon as i do, as this is really good and simple.
At this percentages, once is fully steeped (around 15-20 days), you'll get a good toasted top note, a slight bourbon note and a lot of marshmallow.
At this moment bourbon starts to fade a bit and toasted marshmallow thickens the mix, so test it and crank that bourbon to where you like it. ENJOY!
Ps: Super Sweet is not necessary but i like it really sweet.
One of the most simple, surprising and delicious juices going has to be coop34's "Coop's Kiwi Bourbon".
So, applying Coop's awesome Kentucky Bourbon + Toasted Marshmallow + Fruit formula, one of the first fruits I decided to try was FA Forest Fruits, because it's my favorite. It's great right away, but goes through lots of interestingly tasty changes the longer it homogenizes. Plus, it seems to do something a little different with every hit. I loved the results instantly, and vaped it for months, but curiosity got the better of me, so I added one of my favorite enhancers, FA Oba Oba, and it was perfect.
This one's fun! Good off the shake, and full of little surprises as time goes on. Vaping it is interesting, too; sometimes it's pleasantly boozy, sometimes it has a pink bubble gum vibe, and sometimes it's just a nice, soft, round berry taste with a vaguely smoked-vanilla-like exhale (the Oba Oba, I think?)
If you don't have FA Oba Oba, try it without it, and if you like it, add some to your next order to try it with. It's a pretty fun flavor that does some cool things with the right profile, and in this case, it really rounds it out, making the whole thing softer, fuller and more complex.
