Here it is: my ADV purple vape. I really enjoyed the original recipe that inspired this recipe, or alteration of the original you could say. However, I needed something more personally. Without venturing too far and abandoning the intrinsically wonderful grape qualities of the original, I only tweaked it to give myself a wonderfully satisfying grape candy offering.
I added the Fuji at the recommendation of the creator to up the refreshing aspect of the recipe. I added marshmallow and vanilla swirl in minute amounts for mouth feel and smoothness and hard candy to drive home the candy aspect of the overall grape profile. Sweetener is simply used to further accentuate the candy properties, but it is used sparingly to the point that it doesn’t make the recipe cloying. Not to mention, your coils will thank you later.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. All credit and thanks to the original creator, RockyHarlow, for inspiring this.
[Update 7/15/2019] Added 0.5% FW Sweetener (or the sweetener of your choice at the comparable percentages). I found that as the original recipe aged it got harsher, and the sweetener seems to stabilize that a bit - I'm still testing)
Here is my take on one of my favorites the Black Forest Cake. If you are a lover of cherries and chocolate cake and have had a Black Forest Cake I'm sure you know what I mean. Unfortunately chocolate and cherry flavorings are difficult to mix with. Regardless this is my attempt at replicating this delicious cake.
The chocolate cake is a combination of JF Yellow Cake, HS Australian Chocolate, LB Lava Cake, and FLV Chocolate Deutsch. I tried to strike a balance between the different chocolate flavorings to minimize the off notes and accentuate the good notes - regardless chocolate flavors are very polarizing in the vape community and I'm sure to some it will not be agreeable to their senses.
To me INW Cherries, at low percentages, is fairly authentic with minimal cough syrup notes, but at those low percentages it was not enough to overcome the cake flavor. I decided to add INW Marzipan which increased the Cherry flavoring adding a sugary depth to the Cherry note. One thing I want to try is to get my hands on TFA Cherry Extract to see how that plays, but I had a difficult time finding it so I went with what I had.
Lastly is the heavy whipped cream which I used CAP Vanilla Custard and TFA Whipped Cream to emulate. The Vanilla Custard adds a richness to the cream note as well counteracts the dryness of the chocolate flavors. It was kept low to not elevate the Vanilla note as well as to minimize the steep time of the recipe. I added TFA Whipped Cream to further increase the creamy quality and volume to the vape. I tried adding it at higher percentages, but I found it wanted to mute some of the other flavors as it steeped.
For me the vape is a creamy chocolate initial exhale with the chocolate and cherry notes lingering on the palate with a slight tartness. Is it perfect? - no - but it is still quite good. For the most part I vape this in a single coil RTA like a KayFun V5 or the Coppervape Skyline clone with a 0.3 ohm Clapton coil running around 36-38 watts. I have vaped this in RDAs with mixed results so you have been warned. It seems that the flavorings are best delivered at a medium vape temperature. Since I mainly vape on single coil restricted airflow RTAs this recipe scratches my itch for this flavor profile.
Big chocolate on the pull; meld nicely into chocolate ice cream in the Neapolitan then with other ice creams. There’s just a reflection of Carmel, cherry, coconut, as the mix with the creams to give you that all over ur mouth exhale. Over all very good I’d say a 3 day steep will be needed. But can mix and vape have at it I am.
This is a light custard - you get the thickness, the caramel note, and the creaminess without it being too overwhelming.
CAP French Vanilla - Adds some extra vanilla.
TPA Vanilla Swirl - More added vanilla flavor, and that creamy soft serve note with a touch of sweetness.
FA Bavarian Cream & TPA Whipped Cream - Gives the custard a lift on the cream side, whilst keeping the custard itself low and mellow.
The 3 week steep is necessary for TPA Custard come to life, and blend with the other flavors.
I use 70/30 - VG/PG Vape ready Nic solution at 3mg

"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)
