After the show I tried a version with Creme De Menthe and decided I liked the mixture of the boozy notes better for the idea I was going for.
The idea for this drink -- going against knowing it's supposed to be yet another eggnog recipe -- I went for 1 shot of kalua, 1 shot Creme De Menthe, mixed with coconut milk and frothed cream. The effect of the peppermint stick in the cup comes with the creme de menthe and the ws-23. This worked out well in terms of creating what I was thinking about.
I liked it shake and vape, I would say the creams will totally come out after a week or two steep. I haven't steeped this yet so if there are any drastic changes to it in the next few weeks I'll update this recipe. If it goes as I suspect it will, I probably won't need to update it and a week or two steep will see richer creams and a slight smoothing of the boozy warm notes and a calming of the cooling and the mint. But feel free to shake and vape this as it's pretty yummy.
Week 45 (The year of mixing) - Sweet and mellow coffee flavor with rich tones of buttery caramel drizzle, flavored with smooth hazelnut and light coconut notes, and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. There's a bit of sweetness used here, you don't have to - it's optional - or you could replace it with whatever sweetener you prefer if you like your coffee's really sweet like I do. If you're more of a black coffee drinker, you may need to add in something like FA Cappuccino at 0.25% or Tiramisu to bump the dark coffee notes up some, but this is far more a light and sweet coffee flavor.
This is a cream coffee moose with a thin layer of cookie crisp bottom and a little bit of chocolate shavings on top and a chocolate cookie bottom. Using Cap vanilla custard FLV pudding I build the moose/pudding type base. FA Cappuccino bring a sweet creamy coffee note and flv coffee adds a slight bitter coffee bean note. I used VTA Coffee milk froth to accent the cream note in the coffee part of the mix. Sugar cookie adds just a touch of a bakery note for the bottom layer of the pudding. I layered in just a little bit of Fa Chocolate glazed doughnut to add cocoa notes and the Cookie Crisp at the bottom in the moose/pudding mix & representing the few chocolate shavings on the top. Finally I added a touch of sour wizard to the mix because I like to add that sour note to chocolate in order to make it pop. The sour Wizard is optional but it lends for a good accent to this mix and sour Wizard can be used at a higher % optionally to 0.50% and the sour note can be subbed with LA Tart and Sour if you don’t have FA sour Wizard. Tart and Sour has a different component as far as sour notes go but at this % it’s there as an enhancer rather than as a flavor note.
I recommend 5 day steep but it’s pretty good with an overnight sit.
A Creamy Sweet Eggnog Latte.
Starting with PUR Caramel Coffee with Sweet Cream. One of the best coffee flavors IMO. Smooth coffee with a caramel sweetness and no burnt off notes.
VT Coffee Milk Froth to add the creamy milk froth note and give the coffee more depth.
OOO Cream Milky Undertone to add a smooth milk note with some mouthfeel.
FA Meringue to round out the cream/milk notes. Give a more airy egg flavor and add some sweetness.
FLV Eggnog was the obvious choice for the Eggnog flavor. Best Eggnog flavor out there also IMO. Well balanced spices with the nog in the background.
FA Jamaican Rum to add a slightly boozy spice sweetness.
PUR Super Sweet to sweeten it up a touch, but can be omitted as it is already sweet. I just like it sweeter.
Minimum 7 day steep for it to start to smooth out. Really get solid after 2-3 weeks. It is vapeable off the shake but is a bit harsh.
So it is that season again of all things pumpkin and gingerbread - all day - er day. Nothing fuels the american spending spree during the holidays like a pumpkin latte. I am sure that the shoppers on Rodeo drive will be holding their supper skinny, no calorie, quadruple pumpkin latte as they stroll down the avenue.
This was made for the Flavorah November contest
pur Caramel coffee with sweet milk is a spot on sweet caramel coffee beverage, it needs just a touch of help to move it into a latte
VT coffee milk froth and FLv cream combine to create that thick steamed cream and froth. VT coffee milks froth is light airy and has a just a touch of a coffee note.. FLv cream helps to blend this mix and add body
INW shisha vanilla and FLV milk and Honey Milk and honey creates a darker sweetness that compliments the caramel and coffee profile for this mix. vanilla shisha is more of a lighter top note vanilla that will pop out a bit rather then get blended in with the darker caramel and coffee notes. They also help to add some body and volume to the vape.
FLV pumpkin is the perfect holiday spice blend with really pleasant warm spices - that settles in to the mix as they steep.
This is a pretty sweet mix but feel free to add FLV sweetness for that authentic coffee shop syrup sweetness
It took me the better part of a year to come up with a caramel coffee profile that did not taste like burnt asphalt to me. Admittedly this is far more heavy on the caramel than the coffee but so is the one from the fast food joint that I modeled it after. I used the FLV-Toffee and the VT-Toffee Ice Cream to add some darker layers to the Caramel. The VT-Toffee Ice Cream also helps to thicken it up a bit. The FW-Butterscotch accents the brighter caramel notes as I wanted a full range of caramel lushness in this one. The WF-Brazilian Coffee adds a bit of coffee to the mix along with the VT-Coffee Milk Froth which also adds a hint of butter to the caramel and helps cream it up a tad more. This is much better after a good steep so that the flavors can meld together.
The PUR-Caramel Coffee w/Sweet Milk is rather sweet on its own so you may not need any other sweeteners in this one. Test it first and see.
I've gone through about 40mL of this over the last week or so. Again, I'm just riffing on Fear's Cardinal . . . instead, here I'm trying to build it from similar components (some of which I used because I accidentally ordered 60mL of Digestive Biscuit from Chef's a while back and have been itching to use it something). I tried to create a ramped up RY4 similar to Holy Grail . . .then added some more tobacco. I used JF RY4 Double instead of TFA RY4 Double . . . VT Coffee Milk Froth instead of DIYFS Cafe Napoleon . . . butterscotch instead of caramel . . . threw some extra vanilla, graham crackers, and biscuits at her to round her out.
What I got was a smooth ADV worthy RY4 . . . from that first cup of joe to some late night sips . . . this recipe can carry you through. She's not the Cardinal . . . but she is classy on the outside and downright filthy on the inside. Enjoy!
