My take on an elderflower gin gimlet - this is not for everyone but if you like a different profile and enjoy florals this may be for you
on the inhale you get the apple lime that transitions to the rose and elderflower sweetness with a light dry gin finish
Rose essence is very light but noticeable along with elderflower which is very much to me like the st germain aperitif flavors- they create the mid notes f and pick up on the botanical notes from the gin
Apple creates some juiciness and top note sweetness, it also pulls in some of the notes from the rose. it used her to help balance this mix for the dryness of the gin
golden syrup creates some base syrup sweetness that is similar to simple syrup in a cocktail
Melon rind is like the white and green part of a watermelon - it i is very similar to the inner white part of a cucumber. used here for some slight wetness
Lime adds some tartness and is essential for a gimlet
A sort of Gin-fizz-let with citrus and lime. Refreshing and satisfying!
VT Botanical Gin is aromatic, grassy and delightfully strange. CAP Juicy Lemon tries to stand out but FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed and VT Bergamot tie it down. Might use a better lemon (FE lemon) when I get it, but its fine as it is.
Could use a little fizz? We'll see if I don't ruin it all by adding some.
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.

Original Idea: pairing VT Gin with Honey Bee
Process: Worked on in the diy_ejuice discord by members who were present. Alfred Pudding was on a mission to find the perfect use for Honey Bee and we were interested in pairing Honey Pomelo with Gin. We were thinking FA gin which is less boozy and mostly juniper, and VT Gin was suggested as an alternative which we went for as it fit better for those alcohol notes.
Description: Boozy, citrus, slightly sweet/slightly cool, gin
Result: This is a great vape if you are finally looking for a use for your FLV Honey Bee. It's potent stuff and it's scary smelling. At 0.25 here it does its magic without overpowering. Links in with the citrus combo: VT Honey Pomelo, FLV Pink Guava, and VT Persian Lime which stand strong as an unusual citrus with a twist of lime on top of the gin base. A little coolant without ruining the hot boozy note and presto! We hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

This mix really highlights the Botanical Gin which is notable on the end of the inhale and lingers through the exhale. It is really close to a true botanical gin
The cranberry is a sweet and tart bright note on the inhale
The Orange juice mixes with the cranberry to add a sweet acid note that works in through the the mix
The Ginger ale adds some darker sweet notes to contrast the top notes
Golden syrup adds that sweetness and to the mix similar to a simple syrup in a cocktail
The Blood orange champagne adds the impression of a fizz here and additional sweet citrus

To celebrate national gin day here’s a really tasty gin cocktail showcasing VTA gin and tonic flavours while adding a twist to these great 2 flavours with addition of VT orange marmalade which is really a excellent marmalade flavour that’s authentic and packs a zesty orange flavour that compliments the gin and tonic. A really refreshing vape that sings orange while the gin and tonic flavours show there presence.
What happens when you combine a botanical gin with some chopped up avocado add some gomme syrup, lemon juice and top it all off with some chilli sauce?? Should it work??? It actually does very well.
Take this recipe as a bit of fun as much as I’m enjoying it it’s never going to win recipe of the year but it does highlight what can be done with flavours at first glance you wouldn’t deem workable.
VTA botanical gin is such an awesome gin it highlights what a gin should be without really needing anything else to compliment it. It holds up very well to what you throw in there with it and it’s profile hits you on the inhale every time without fail.
FLV Avocado is very accurate it has some meaty inner flesh that’s very creamy,fatty and slightly nutty in its texture adding a little guanabana lifts this flavour to another level giving it a more creamy tropical flavour without losing what it’s meant to be.
VTA Lemonade clear and sour lemon add the gomme and some acidity to the gin and avocado. Creating gomme isn’t something I’m familiar with it’s basically a simple syrup however a lemonade flavour should mimic this very well without just dumping sweetener in there that could mute flavours.
FLV Heat seems strange but I wanted to finish this cocktail with a little twist. Think of this as a dressing avocado is always dressed with some kind of dressing especially in salads so why not here. Let’s mimic the FLV heat here as a little chilli 🌶 sauce drizzle over the top. It honestly works gin,avocado,lemon and a little heat at the end is just wonderful.
Mix it up and see for yourself I could of showcased gin the traditional way but who wants boring
