Strawberries and cream
I have come a long way in the past 6 months as a mixer and felt it was time to revisit the profile. Fresh ideas and a better stash.
(To anyone who suffered my old strawberry delight recipe, this is my apology)
To be begin with, I made a 10% dilution of FLV Alpine Strawberry with pg. Added 0.1g of that 10% dilution which equals out to 0.01% of actual flavor into my 10ml tester.
4% tfa strawberry ripe really fills in the rest of the strawberry notes. It's also still my single favorite strawberry.
Now, as for the cream and body, I went with a 1:1 FLV Cream and Marshmallow Vanilla which is good by itself but I found that it needed a bit of heaviness. Something to fill in the bottom. Custard really brought the more pudding-like cream that I really wanted for this.
Time: To be honest, after mixing this up I forgot about it on the shelf. I finally remembered 12 days later. Protip: always write the date it was mixed up on the bottle because otherwise I wouldn't have known how long it had been there.
VT-Bilberry Ripe-(1%)-The minute I smelled this one I knew this was it!! I used this to boost the "blueness" in the recipe.
TPA-Blackberry-(0.15%)-***Be careful with this one do not over use it is very potent* **I used the Blackberry as the main blue note because I pick up some florals out of it ,which sings with the hibiscus beautifully. (The blackberry has a tendency to stick to whatever you put it on)
TPA-Hibiscus-(1.5%)-Big Shout out to Edible Malfunction for pointing me toward this hibiscus and away from FLV, compared to how the FLV was making this mix taste like i was eating the stem with everything this work a lot better but can be perfumery at high %(Not Saying FLV is bad but for this mix for me it just didnt work)
(Removed 10/6/19 because of fading) LA-Lemonade-(2.25%)-This is my Lemonade base to provide that tartness I need to counter all the sweetness in this recipe.
FLV Lemonade-(2%)- As a replacement for the LA Lemonade I kept having fading issues with it this also bring some juiciness to the mix
CAP-Hibiscus-(1%)-Serves dual functions as an accent to the TPA hibiscus and an emulsifier to help everything blend.
TPA-Strawberry Ripe-(1%)-helps make everything pop and bring some sweetness to the party.
VT Yellow Passion Fruit-(0.25%)- to give it more of a tropical body (did experiment with FLV Boysenberry, FA Passion Fruit , VT Passion Fruit and FLV Passionfruit) Felt like this one fit the best and joined with the florals,
FWIW I feel like this capture the drink perfectly if there is anything u guys think i can sub to make it better etc. please lmk =]
I used 1 drop cap super sweet per 30 ml you can add WS-23 to your liking hope you enjoy as much as I did working on it then finally getting it the way i wanted

For any Brits around here you may be familiar with Robinsons Summer Fruits Squash. I was addicted to that stuff as a kid and tried to create a recipe that had a really sweet profile, but in a natural fruity way rather than sickly sweet. This is still a work in progress but I can't stop mixing this stuff so thought I'd make it my first shared recipe. It definitely has a floral note, which some may not like but is very much to my taste and the addition of LA Lemonade makes it more of a Robinsons Lemonade than a Robinsons Squash but given my new-found addiction to LA Lemonade I'm very pleased with this.
I’m a huge fan of the game Overwatch so I decided to start mixing and testing recipes inspired by a few of my favorite heroes.
This one comes as inspiration derived from the hero, Dva. I think Dva, I think of the vibrant colors of her various skins in the game, which prompted me to create a vibrant and fruity candy centered vape. Here you’ll experience a medley of fruit notes ranging from blue raspberry, strawberry, and a light touch of lemon with dragonfruit melding it all together to fashion a very juicy, flavorful vaping experience. It’s sweet, it’s smooth, it’s delightful.
An icy swirl of sweet strawberry and tart kiwi. These bold, syrupy fruit flavors complement and contrast with one another in a tangy and refreshing soda that I can’t get enough of.
FA Kiwi: Hands down the best kiwi flavor around, tart and sweet.
TFA Strawberry Ripe & CAP Strawberry Sweet & TFA Strawberry = a syrupy strawberry stone
TFA Dragonfruit to emulsify and preserve the strawberry flavor.
CAP Jelly Candy = Adds a bit of texture, also adds some candy vibes to the soda.
WS23 = Closest thing to a cold fizz you're going to get.
Optional variation: If you want a little more "soda bite", you can add 1% RF Soda Base.
This came out delicious on the first attempt, and subsequent variations haven't improved on this formula much, only slightly balancing the fruits. I've also tried this with other combinations of strawberries (including the daveberry trifectae) in place of this strawberry stone, but ended up returning to the individual formula, then boosting the Kiwi and slightly reducing the Strawberry and Strawberry Ripe to make the kiwi a little more prominent in the mix.
