"Throw shit at a wall and see what sticks" is what a great man once said.
That's exactly what I did with this recipe. I craved for fruit salad, so I picked up any flavors that looked like they could belong in a fruit salad, used the recommended percentages ELR back then gave me and voilà - my current ADV was born
Honestly, I feel like there is lots of room for improvements. I'm currently playing a lot with this but I feel like this is good enough to put it out there. Good enough that I vape this stuff since months everyday.
(Sweetener is optional. I simply used it because I like it sweet)

Profile: Steamed rice with rose apples.
A while ago, I got thrown into a discussion at work about Buddha. Being married to a wonderful Japanese lady, who are heavily into buddhism, I started to look up what kind of food, the original Buddha's (yes there are a few of them) would actually eat.
Rice was a given and after much researchning I came up with a few recipes.
A sweet/floral one and a more sweet/savory one.
This one here are the sweet/floral one.
It's based off on the a rice dish mixed with what we currently know as a Rose Apple - or more commonly (cause there are MANY Rose Apples), a Java Apple.
While a Java Apple actually not being an apple at all, but got its name due to its colour, it's more of a melon-ish, snow pear-ish type of fruit.
It's found in wide areas in South East Asia.
A lot of credit here goes to @Shyndo and @Alfredpudding for ideas and help choosing the flavors for the Rose Apple
The Rice: is made from FA Sweet Rice and VT Rice Base. I found this combo to be pretty much what nicely steamed basmati rice tastes like.
FLV Cream: helps to bind the rice together, but only just enough to not turn it into a creamy rice pudding, as it wouldn't fit the profile. By all means, this is not really a dessert.
Rose Apple: Shyndo and Alfred both chipped in here. Alfred suggested using CAP Sweet Guava, to add some of the flavor and the flesh along with TFA pear and
FLV Rose Essence for flavor. While Shyndo chipped in (agreeing unknowingly with Alfred) on the pear and rose essence. Shyndo went further and suggested to add some honeysuckle, as honeysuckle and rose essence could be a killer combo - and I agree.
Combine the rice and the rose apple and it's a great sweet and floral vape, with a wonderful rice flavor on the exhale.
No real steep is needed for this, as FE Sweet Rice has a habit of fading, but over a day or two, it'll become more creamy and delicious. Works great as a SnV!

i did another hops mix, it took a few nights of tinkering and shit, but it turned out nicely and i'm honestly over trying to nitpick some nuances. mix it up if you like green fruit shit or something a bit weird. there wasn't any real thought behind this, i am not trying to replicate anything real, just wanted to add a bunch of shit i like together. here's the amalgamation of that. notes below.
flv yakima hops - it's at a high percentage here, but don't let that deter you. you'll hardly taste it. it gets buried in all the fruit. what it does at this percentage is create some weird, funky, earthy, dirty depth to the fruits involved. that's about it. if you like pears or apples, this will appeal to you, and the hops will just bring some extra shit to the party.
inw lime / cap lemon lime - using inw lime here to just bump up the citrus notes from cap lemon lime, while also adding some extra tartness to the mix overall. the use of pear in this mix really sweetens this shit up quick, so the extra boost of bitter/sour from inw lime was necessary. cap lemon lime is just something i ain't used in ages, and i forgot how good it was as a base to recipes such as this. nothing crazy going on with thought process on this.
tpa pear / fa pear - obviously i've been doing this combination, in different percentages, for a long ass fuckin time. i decided to go opposite to my norm here though, as i wanted that crisp realism from tpa pear to stand up front. i'm just using fa pear in this to add some juiciness to the hops, and help give some dimension to the sweetener. easy.
fa fuji - at first, i was using inw anton apple in place of fa fuji, however i wasn't getting the apple bite that i wanted from that. granted, i know inw anton is a powerhouse of a flavor, but fa fuji can't be muted as easily by the other flavors. that's pretty much it. i wanted apple notes, this is how i got them to stay in the mix.
cap super sweet - this is kinda optional. i don't think it's entirely necessary, but i think that it does help negate some of the offensive notes you usually can pick up from yakima hops. without the super sweet, i was noticing just a touch of unpleasant vegetal flavor on the back end of this mix. it seems that adding the super sweet prevented that. and hey, i'm a cuck now that likes using sweeteners.
steep time - this is really good day one, i honestly think it's best off a shake. everything stays fairly separated and it feels brighter off the shake. it's still solid after a few days, i haven't had a bottle last longer than three days, so i can't say much about its longevity. but whatever. mix it in smaller batches, vape it quick.
alright that's it. mix it if you want or don't. i haven't dropped anything new in a minute and i like this one so fuck it. enjoy.

Newer, better version here: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/147651
INW Cherries completely changes the flavor and becomes stronger after a few days' steep. You definitely don't want that in this recipe.
------------ Old description: ------------
IMPORTANT: CAP Lemon Lime's gravity (g per ml) by default is way above what it should be. If you mix by weight, mix CAP Lemon Lime as 1g = 1ml.
CAP Super Sweet is optional.
VapeWild doesn't add cooling, but 2 drops per 30ml of WS-23 works well if you're into that.
No steep required, shake and vape!
