Refreshing, zesty and slightly bitter classic cocktail.
The base is the obvious choice VT Botanical Gin + VT Tonic Water and works seamlessly. Needed citrus is given by FA Lime Tahity Cold Pressed and FE Lemon, VT Bergamot adds to the aroma. INW Cactus does its thing giving freshness, but lies hidden in the mix. VT Fizzy Sherbet smoothes it all out, and gives an extra zesty touch. Can add CAP Cucumber, to smooth it out 2-3% but it is great as is. Helps clean cotton like a champ, specially after tobaccos!
INW Coolada (or WS 23) to taste. Cheers!
A tasty little vape but please share any changes you think it may benefit from.
CAP Cucumber as a sub at 2% is ok, could then probably omit the cactus. I prefer FLV as it's more earthy - as it should be for a G&T but it's a tad too earthy at 1% which is the right amount for the flavour I want so a drop of sweetner sorts that out, I use two or three drops of SS per 50ml. Was hoping the blood orange would provide all the sweetness needed but it just doesn't.
For that slice of lemon Lemon Mix is what you're after.
A touch of WS-23 if you wish. I like it without.
May try a tiny amount of mint too but not sure about it working with the blood orange.
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.
Tested on Digiflavor Siren 2 with 1 ohm ss316 at 16 watts
Alltheflavors isn’t playing ball with me at the moment so here’s a limited description
Botanical gin infused with passion fruit,mango,elderflower and tonic water garnished with fresh strawberries perfect for any tea party. A great refreshing cocktail for the upcoming spring/summer months.
Add ws23 1-2% for a chilly beverage
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
