I wanted a slight spearmint note with a sweetened heavy cream. This is my attempt at it, and really my first attempt at making my own recipe period. I really dig this. It is great right off the shake, in fact, I almost prefer it right off the shake as you get a little bit more of the New York Cheesecake. Delicious. It steeps nicely and the mint does fade, but I still find it an enjoyable all day vape.
I wish I could give you more information about why I choose this flavor for this reason, but I'm really not into single flavor tasting. I just used the flavors that I have acquired from research. . . and recipes I've bought for. Watching Noted in particular and listening to what flavors ranked and what they could do brought me to this list for this recipe. I had intended to take the long road and alter percentages and try alternative flavors, but to be honest. . . . I really like this as it stands.
The one thing I can say is that the mint is mild in this. I might bump it up a .25% when I mix it next, but for the most part I think these are spot on for my taste and what I was going for.
If you do indeed try this recipe out, I encourage you to try it as it steeps. The changes in flavor are quite nice and really change from day to day.
Inspired by a The Mixin Vixens challenge.
This didn't quite make it into a pomegranate/strawberry smoothie, but I enjoyed it as is.
The Strawberry Taffy adds sweetness, flavor and mouth-feel to the yogurt. It was the first time I had used this flavor, and I was pleased with how it paired with the yogurt. The Pomegranate and Spearmint give the punch needed for a summertime vape.
Tested on a Wasp Nano, SS316 0.31 ohm. I liked it at around 50 watts. I mixed this at 50/50 VG/PG, but I don't recommend vaping this at low wattage due to significant flavor loss.
An African Horned Cucumber gin cocktail inspired by this recipe: http://fruitmaven.com/2010/02/minty-blowfish-kiwano-cocktail/
After my first experiment with African Horned Cucumber, I was determined to tame the beast, and researched how the fruit was used in cooking. This recipe was intriguing. The mint and gin are strong enough to balance the African Horned Cucumber, and it takes its place as a team player.
Tested on Digiflavor Siren 2 with 1 ohm ss316 at 16 watts
CAP Sweet Lychee & TFA Lychee.
Great Lychee combination.. Cap sweet has a sweet syrupy/sugary/juicy vibe but It lacks some of the tropical spice I love in a lychee. To cure this I have added 1% TFA Lychee. That's as much as I could do without the mix sliding off the florals cliff, TFA Lychee tends to go floral on your ass after a steep..
TFA Jack Fruit.
Its such a wonderful tropical flavor with notes of cactus, feint banana and I even get a little pineapple in there somewhere. I like the creamy quality and I just had a feeling this may go well with the lychee. I used Dragon fruit initially, but contains too much triacetin so it melds the flavors too much and ended up muting all the flavors.
FA Fuji & FA Lemon Sicily
Fuji was added to give the mix a nice fruity body and FA lemon Sicily really helps brighten the profile as a whole and really makes the profile pop.
CAP Sweet Strawberry
Sweet strawberry lends depth and sweetness whilst not being prominent in the flavor profile. I would have much rather have used strawberry ripe but I am fresh out. Ripe mutes significantly on the steep which would have been ideal for this recipe.
Koolada and lychee in my view does not play well. But at this low percentage it has a negligible effect and it just cools the mix down enough to keep it from tasting warm and soggy.
Lychee and Jackfruit doesn't stand up to mints very well in general. I feel they both have have light nuisances which is easily masked by additives and I want those to be present in this recipe. At 0.15 it sit lightly on the profile and just adds a nice complexity and summery vibes to the mix.
There is a slight waxiness - it is characteristic of TFA dragon fruit and TFA Lychee. It dies down after a short steep (1 day)
I'd love to hear your thoughts
