The term "perfect storm" is nearly synonymous with "worst-case scenario", although the latter carries more of a hypothetical connotation.
This drink is pretty much the opposite of its name: Tasty, aromatic, refreshing and something special. Originates from the classic "Jamaican Mule", also seen as "Jamaican Storm"

Well-balanced drink of Ginger Beer, spiced rum and lemon juice, served on the rocks.

"Weird show!" you mumble, sitting back in your car on your way home. "This weather is killing me and I'm dying for a drink!"
You keep your eyes open, hoping to find a restaurant, bar or at least a gas station to buy some refreshments. But the recent events barely left any business alive.
"What's that?" You squint your eyes, not sure whether you're hallucinating or you really just saw a flickering neon sign, advertising a bar. You slam the break and jerk the steering wheel to take an immediate u-turn. The highway is empty, as usual these days, so there's nobody that could be bothered by your maneuver.
As you get closer, you feel more and more positive about the existence of that neon sign, until you finally reach the parking lot of a rundown bar with barricaded windows. But you hear some music from the inside, so you enter the taproom. Nobody is around, only the bartender listening to some music and polishing glasses.
You take a look at the menu - "Is this some kind of joke?" you ask, pointing at the sheet of paper that contained - ONE - drink.
"Nope, take it or leave it, bud..." the barkeeper mumbles.
Who would even call a drink a "Perfect Storm", especially at these circumstances? But do you really have a choice? During the last weeks you learnt to lower your standards and that being too picky usually ends in getting nothing at all.
"Alright, Perfect Storm please, cant't get any worse, can it?" The bartender nods, throws some ice cubes and a slice of lemon into a glass before pouring over some murky brown liquid. He hands it over, nods again and continues to polish his glasses.

You take a smell, breathe a sigh of relief and gulp down a huge, thirsty sip. The bartender just renamed the good old "Jamaican Mule".
After a few more sips you enjoy the heat of the alcohol flowing through your body. You enjoy the warmth and spiciness of Ginger Beer, paired with Caribbean Spiced Rum, juicy lime, a slice of cucumber and the refreshing coldness of the ice cubes.

Ingredients

  • VT Fizzy Sherbet Brings in the fizzy mouthfeel of Ginger Beer.
  • TPA Ginger Ale Basis for the Ginger Beer. Nice ginger note.
  • VT Ginger Root Adds more ginger to the Ginger Beer, especially on the spicy side that differs Ginger Beer from Ginger Ale
  • FLV Heat Does not add taste but turns the Ginger Beer into a spicy and slightly hot version, like brands as Thomas Henry or Bundaberg
  • FE Lemon Refreshing lemon taste that pairs well with both, ginger and rum.
  • VT Light Rum Basis for the rum component, especially on the lighter notes and slight boozy notes. More of a white rum than a spiced rum.
  • FA Jamaican Special Caribbean Mule is usually mixed with spiced rum. This one helps to bring in the spice.
  • VT Russian Vodka Adds more booziness for more authentic rum experience
  • CAP Cucumber Cucumber usually is a part of the cocktail. Only in for a very slight taste, mostly for a more watery mouthfeel.
  • WS-23 You don't like lukewarm drinks, do you? Works perfectly fine together with FLV Heat.

Additional Notes

  • I did also try FLV Citrus Soda instead of Fizzy Sherbet. Works but not as good. Feel free to lower or remove the Heat in case you don't like the mouthfeel. Doesn't contribute taste, only makes the ginger more authentic.

"Orange Cream (WF)" en mi opinión es una buena crema de naranja en general y como "main note", pero necesita un poco de ayuda.
Por este mismo motivo añado "Blood Orange (FW)"+"Sweet Tangerine (CAP)" para acentuar la naranja, ya que soy más de frutas que de postres y para mi gusto queda mejor así.
"Garden Mint (SSA)" es para mi la mejor menta "natural" que he probado y la pongo en esta receta para dar la ilusión de esa hoja de menta...
"Ginger Root (VT)" siguiendo la receta original de Crema de Naranja, aquí casi resulta inapreciable pero aporta complejidad a la receta, te invito a que hagas la prueba con y sin gengibre y luego me dices en los comentarios...
El resto de aromas complementan el postre o la crema, que a mi me gusta suave y de fondo.
He añadido Super Sweet y creo que se acerca más a los estandares comerciales de esa manera, pero podría prescindir de el aquí.
WS-23 para ese postre recien salido del frigorífico...

Está bueno después de mezclarlo pero te estarás perdiendo los detalles si no lo dejas macerar al menos 5 días. Yo personalmente lo dejo 7 días mínimo y va mejorando hasta los 20 días o así, luego mantiene muy bien las propiedades sin llegar a mejorar demasiado trás esos 20 días.

Gracias!!!

Mellow creamy ginger/cinammon mix with light almond notes on the backend , perfect for the cold winter nights.

Needs a 3day steep for the ginger to calm down and blend with the cream base

Tested on skyfall fralien 0.25 @ 65Watts

I absolutely love Ginger and I originally wanted to make a Ginger lemonade but since I had no experience with mixing lemonades I ended up with this off of hand taste pairings. I'm NOT sure about the required steeping time as I didn't get to try it until a while after I mixed it.

I really liked this one, I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Nice London Dry Floral Gin.
In its best after two days.

"THE LAST DRAGON"

DESCRIPTION:

Based on Jamaican Sorrel Drink(which I make weekly!), this spicy & cool drink was only fitting to honor the exquisiteness of our beloved Drogon.

SIDE NOTES:

These are all the ingredients of the delicious & unique Christmas-time Jamaican Sorrel Drink.

Traditional Jamaican Sorrel uses actual Jamaican Sorrel(their native hibiscus) which can be purchased in any shop that sells Jamaican products. There is very little difference in flavor between American & Jamaican hibiscus in my opinion. The American type is much easier and cheaper to get ahold of.

Occasionally, I will add about 1/8 cup of Jamaican Rhum to mine(also traditional in Jamaican culture). I did not add it here, because frankly-I add so little that I can barely even taste it(I've never really enjoyed the effects of alcohol).

In the real life recipe that I will include after all my notes, I include rum measurement.

NOTES:

FLV LIME WEDGE is the ONLY freshly 'chopped' lime flavoring that compares to the real thing. Lime Cold Pressed, etc., does NOT mimic the taste of fresh chopped lime with these particular concentrates. Sorry. This flavoring is potent as hell, so one 15ml(or 10ml) bottle will likely last you at least a year!

CAP HIBISCUS was the only match for the flavor of dried Hibiscus buds that I usually order from Nuts(dot)com. I am only mentioning that site because it's the best bargain if you want to make the real life recipe. I've tried all other concentrates and they were pretty nasty here.

For my cracked pimento(called 'allspice' here in the States), I utilized CAP PUMPKIN PIE SPICE. TFA's version didn't even compare. I also buy my whole pimentos from Nuts(dot)com and crack them myself. Our powdered allspice in the supermarkets is pitiful in comparison.

I used only 1 drop of **FLV RICH CINNAMON per 20-30ml eliquid here. You don't want it to overpower anything...but you definitely want it flexing its' muscle.

VT GINGER ROOT is the key to getting this just right. In the real drink, I use anywhere from 1/4-1/3 cup of fresh peeled ginger root(depending on how much bite I want my sorrel to have). VT's version of Ginger Root is the most accurate. I even went as far as purchasing NF's ginger to try out(it was very close...but not a perfect fit & had an indescribable off note when mixed with these specific concentrates). And again...if you are making the real life recipe below? Powdered Ginger from your spice rack will not work. At all. Just don't do it.

WS-23 is not listed in the above recipe but was used at 2 drops per 20-30ml eliquid.

FLV SWEETNESS was used at a high 1.25% to mimic the sugar syrup added to sorrel drink.

STEEP:SNV-3 DAYS(I usually SNV it)

VG: 70%

As always, I humbly ask that you don't produce this for commercial gain, as it was shared in good faith. And if you like this please rate it. Your ratings are the only way us mixers know if we are doing a good job or not. Thanks so much & enjoy!

I will include the recipe for this delicious drink below for anyone that wants to try it out. With the real drink, the longer you steep-the stronger the hibiscus flavor. I usually steep mine anywhere from 4 hours to 24 hours(it depends on my level of patience!).

Jamaican Sorrel Drink:

•2 cups Dried Hibiscus Flowers

•1 finely chopped peeled fresh lime(I pulse mine in a food processor)

•1/4-1/3 cup fresh ginger(peeled), chopped fine(I pulse with a food processor)

•1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon sugar or 1 cinnamon stick

•4-6 Cracked Pimento(I usually place between paper towels and give them one good whack with a hammer. You dont want them crushed, like allspice powder--you just want to crack them open. These babies are potent).

•2 cups white sugar.

•2 cups of water

•10 cups water

•a fine sieve

OPTIONAL: 1/8-1/4 cup Jamaican Rhum

Directions:
Place dried hibiscus flowers, ginger, lime, cinnamon sugar & allspice in large bowl or large pot & set aside.

In one small pot, bring 2 cups of water & 2 cups of sugar to a boil and remove from heat. Allow this to cool. It will be a thick sugar syrup.

In large pot, bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Pour over hibiscus flower mixture and allow to steep at least 4 hours(if steeping overnight, place in refrigerator).

After steeped to your preference, stir sugar syrup(this is also when I add my rum) into mixture. Final mixture must be run through a fine sieve before being poured into a 1 gallon pitcher and chilled. A regular strainer will not work. If you can't wait until your sorrel drink gets cold(like me), serve over ice. I generally make mine at night, so I can enjoy a glass over ice before bed, knowing that by morning, my pitcher in the fridge will be perfectly chilled with no need of added ice cubes.

Trust me...you have never tried any drink like this. It is highly addictive!!

A group effort from @NordicFlavors @staybert myself and final edits by @ID10-T.

An attempt at a ginger rum lime drink built around TPA Ginger Ale. Not the best way to go since ginger ale has a heavy vanilla cream going on that is not hidden at this high a percentage. It's good, but a cleaner ginger drink built around FLV Ginger is probably in the future... until then, here is a solid balanced drink that gives you an excuse to use your Gingers

Chai spiced coconut milk. Working on getting the spice mix balanced with some real bite. The Bavarian cream and meringue seem to be allowing the spices to be flavorful without any real harshness. Base is shamelessly stolen from slashur.

A simple exotic orange vape, refreshing and intense.
Blood Orange (FA) stands out as the peel, Bergamot (VT) fills the orange flavor and gives sweetness much better than (CAP) Juicy Orange which can overpower at 1% and has higher throat hit.
Maybe some creams could smooth it out, will see.
