For many of us an authentic orange juice is something we’ve long been after.
I started this years ago (just now releasing June 2021) and tired out from oranges at one point. I picked up SSA juicy orange and knew I had to try again. I gotta say this is the closest I’ve gotten so far. Still not 100% but I figured I’d share anyways since I think I'm done chasing this whale for now.
I have to thank Dave @ID10T for the suggestions of using FLV pineapple, smoothie base and pear (amongst others but those are what I settled on). It seems like a complex recipe but anything simpler took orange in a direction I didn't want. Using these at low percentages allowed me to fill in bits and pieces without allowing any of them to take me in a direction other than an orange. Go EASY on sweetener, if you use any at all, I'd suggest stevia or FLV sweetness, very low, or you'll just get orange candies. Go ahead and add WS23 if you like but personally I found it made it too fizzy.
WF orange juice Is a great orange juice but it's kinda thin, flat and is missing those bright top notes of an orange.
SSA juicy orange Is very bright but bordering on candy so its kept low and the balance of the orange is made up with other concentrates.
FLV pineapple When I had a conversation with Dave, I mentioned I was having trouble finding something to thicken up and add some pulpy texture, this is what he suggested, stating that if it could be hidden under enough orange, it just might do the trick and it sure does! He was also correct in the fact that it has a slight orange note to it.
FLV smoothie base Is there as a thickener and emulsifier. Has complementary citrus notes that do a good job of holding this all together.
CAP Italian lemon Sicily Is there as a brightener. I tried several lemons mostly for the top note and wetting effect and this one just seemed the least intrusive. You could sub this if you like though with pretty much anything but FE lemon since it doesn't fade off very well or JF juicy lemon since I felt it turned it more to soda.
FLV sour apple Adds some tartness and juiciness.
FA bergamot Used for some pithyness, initially I tried INW orange shisha for this but it was just a bit too orange for me, this adds the pith without overloading in orange.
FA bitter wizard I recalled reading that tobacco lovers use this in a mix to eliminate any inherent sweetness and thought to give it a go in this. This seems like to wouldn't really be necessary but given the included sweetener of WF orange juice, it does help to tone down the sweetness that we can't get rid of here, taking it a tad further from an orange soda. If you want less sweet still, you could bump this up a tad.
TPA smooth This is there for the triacetin. it helps to thicken the mix and round the harsh edges. Can be subbed for FA magic mask, FA mts vape wizard or FW flavor toner/enhancer. Though not sure about %ge since I don't have those.
FLV pear Was actually a last minute, I'm curious, addition and I don't know how or why but I felt like it made it less sweet somehow. Also gives some more texture and body to back up the pineapple that I dare not push too high.
One of my many iterations included SSA multivitamin and while it was really good, it took it too far away from being authentic and more to a punch... also brought the pineapple out too much for what I was going for. Still though, 1-2% makes for an interesting deviation.
VT fizzy sherbet at 1% makes this into a really good orange soda.
To make this more of a smoothie, bump the percentage of FLV smoothie base up to 1.5-2% and you're golden.
Lots of fun things you could do here to play around with it and prevent boredom.
Let this breathe for 24 hrs, its pretty harsh off the shake. I found it best after being steeped 2-3 days to let the edges meld a little.
Please rate, review and enjoy :)
THIS IS HAWAIIAN PUNCH
If you've ever wanted to vape Hawaiian Punch and been frustrated by flavors like TFA Hawaiian Islands Punch Type, FW Tropical Punch, CAP Silverline Tropical Fruit Punch, and FLV Tropical Punch, which fall short, this recipe is for you.
Sweetener is optional but so highly recommended that I've left the high amount of FW Sweetener that I prefer with it in the recipe. It drives that super sugary drink experience home. You could use less. If you don't have FW and want to use CAP Super Sweet, 0.5 to 0.75% should get 'er done. Or again, use less if you prefer. TFA Sweetener is not recommended here. Coolants are optional but are not recommended. WS-23 kinda ruins it, unfortunately. A touch of FA Polar Blast doesn't hurt much, but it does somewhat distract from the experience.
This recipe is the product of a partnership in which I played a relatively minor role. I asked @AlfredPudding why he does this to me, refuses full credit for his work like he did with the Back Nine recipe and makes me be the one to share it, and he says it's to torture me. That's ok, I like the abuse. But this time, instead of merely asserting that Alfred did all the work and moving along to flavor notes, I offer a mostly unredacted report of the events that led to this recipe:
This all started when I tried Alfred's Cherry Bomb and told him I thought it was about 5% INW Pineapple shy of Hawaiian Punch. He sent me back a recipe he called "Counter Point" that did indeed have 5% INW Pineapple, but also had more Cherries, less Sweet Guava, FA Forest Fruit instead of Rainbow Candy, and CAP Yellow Peach instead of TFA Jackfruit. So I tried that and responded with "Counter Counter Point" - A recipe with little less Pineapple, a little less Peach, a little more Sweet Guava, some TFA Smooth to blend it together, and a bunch of sweetener that it seemed to be crying out for. Minor adjustments and fairly obvious additions. I got back a Counter Counter Counter Point, with a hair less Apricot and no more Forest Fruit. This was Hawaiian Punch.... but yet... not. It was too soft. More like Hawaiian love tap. The only difference in this final version is half as much Smooth as the Counter Counter Counter Point, as it is still providing the blending it needed but not over-softening its punch.
A Simple well rounded cool Blueberry vape. If you prefer menthol instead of ws-23, polar blast recommend 0.85% of FLV cool menthol. This recipe is intended for pod use. Enjoy!!!!

This is the same recipe I have shared on ELR. It has been a looooooong time since I had the original, but using memory and community input, this is a close clone (and very similar to the One-Shot Django's bounty sold by ECX)
I've subbed the TPA cinnamon spice out for RF Cinnamon Roll – SC @ 1% with good results.
Don't be mistaken, she may look all sweet but she'll set you on fire. This one's spicy like those redheads ya just can't stay away from!
Tastes just like a cinnamon heart candy; spicy, sickeningly sweet with that creamy-ish hard candy center you get after you suck all the spicy off. Oh, and the room note on this, if you like hot cinnamon, is to die for! I've been painstakingly trying to achieve (and by that I mean literally...my poor throat!) this profile on and off for years now, its something Ive not seen any mixers truly be able (or brave enough to try) to pull off. That made me even more determined and well, Ive finally nailed it down, just in time for Valentines day. Now I don't do holidays but you might want to mix up a bottle for your crush or sweetheart "t-t-t-t-t-t-today junior!" (if you didn't know thats from Billy Madison...tsk, tsk, shame on you)
I initially started by trying about every red hot/tamale flavor out there but to me they all have this synthetic chemical taste on the exhale that I really despise, I wanted to feel like I just swallowed a mitt-ful of the candy hearts I keep around all year long cuz I love em so much :p The trick with cinnamon flavorings is they need to be used really low otherwise they're just miserable and will tear a hole though your throat. My initial starting place of 2% with these was a truly painful experience, I couldn't taste anything for a bit after that thanks to the perfume note that TPA takes on if used higher than this.
FLV RED CINNAMON is a good spicy hot cinnamon with no chemical taste but kinda lacks that candy edge, so we need to help it out some.
TPA CINNAMON; by accident, I realized that this is not in-fact a spice type flavor but rather a red hot flavor without the nasty chemical/perfume taste like the other offerings. This helps to fill the edge that FLV is missing.
INW CHERRIES/INW SHISHA STRAWBERRY/VT GOLDEN SYRUP
The combination of fruits at low% help fill in the candy note while staying low enough to not come upfront & golden syrup helps with the sticky mouth feel. I had initially tried CAP hibiscus & WF grenadine for the syrupy mouthfeel they are known for adding to a mix but they altered the taste too much. Golden Syrup is an incredibly useful flavoring that adds body and mouthfeel, deepens flavoring in a mix without being distracting at all.
LA CREAMCHEESE ICING/PUR MARSHMALLOW/DFS HOLY VANILLA/000 POWDERED SUGAR
This builds a chewy sticky mouthfeel with a hint of creaminess & helps blend out the harshness of the spicy cinnamon. PUR marshmallow might seem like an odd choosing but I had a reason for this. Other offerings are great for mouthfeel but PUR, I feel actually has the candy marshmallow taste, as well as feel. If you don't have it you could sub which ever marshmallow you have but I would up the holy vanilla to 1% in addition to it. Powdered sugar adds a great confection taste and feel to pretty much everything, its for sure one of those flavors you don't wanna be without.
This just helps to soften the harshness of the cinnamon and meld the mix together. You could sub MTS vape wizard if you have that instead, or omit it completely. I do find it helps but it wont break the recipe if you don't have it.
Yes this is insanely high! You could certainly omit the sweetener or adjust to your liking, I just feel that for an authentic candy cinnamon taste, it needed to be sickly sweet. This isn't an ADV anyways, (unless you're a masochist) so why not?
If you have a sensitive throat, I suggest making a small sample of this first and if you find it too spicy, you can reduce the cinnamon flavorings to .10% and .25% they are still detectable at this level but not as saturated or spicy.
I vape it right off the shake but breathing overnight will mellow it a bit and after a week steep, its a bit more creamy. This is better at higher wattages.
I honestly rate and review every single recipe I mix up & ask you to do the same.

This recipe was inspired by a beverage served at one of my local restaurants. Once I had my first sip I knew I HAD to recreate this!
If you are unfamiliar with Milk Tart (or Melktert in Afrikaans), it is described as a South African dessert which has a sweet pastry crust and a creamy custard filling made from eggs, flour, milk and sugar. Cinnamon is generally sprinkled on top.
In this recipe I am trying to recreate a Milk Tart blended with thick vanilla ice cream.
The Milk Tart:
TPA Acetyl Pyrazine, CAP New York Cheesecake, TPA Cheesecake (graham Crust) and FA Cookie combine to form a delicious crust.
The CAP Butter Cream, FW Cake Batter Dip and CAP Vanilla Custard form the essence of the "eggy", deliciously creamy custard filling that all South Africans know and love.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl and FA Meringue gave me exactly the right amount of cinnamon sugar-sprinkled touch to finish off the Milk Tart.
TFA Bavarian Cream, FW Milk and FA Fresh Cream plays delightfully with elements of the filling to create the milkshake aspect of the recipe.
TFA Smooth is used here to emulate that thick, satisfying mouthfeel and to help blend all the flavours (all the flavors, lol, I know!) together.
This took me a few iterations to perfect and I would like to share the joy this recipe brought me with you all.
It is fairly decent right off the bat but really comes into it's own after a good 2 week steep.
Please give it a mix, comment or rate.
This recipe is for The Year of Mixing week -42 inspiration.
This is a blend of berry notes with a touch of citrus intertwined, softened by a gentle cream and sweet coconut flavors. The Candy Wizard is used to sweeten and add a jammy richness, while balanced with the sour notes of Sour Wizard, and everything is softly smoothed with a bit of TFA Smooth.
This works well as a shake and vape recipe, but if you find it a touch harsh shake and vape, add up to 1% TFA Smooth to calm down the harsh notes as long as you don't plan to steep it. If you are going to steep for the 2 weeks it needs to be fully steeped leave the smooth levels as is in the recipe. I do also suggest adding (if you enjoy it) 0.75% FA Arctic Winter (Menthol) and 0.2% WS-23 to this mix. It adds a lovely element to it that I quite enjoy. If you do not like menthol or Cooling you can leave one or both out if you dislike them.
