a mix made for Alex Mcanally, known for being in the army and liking green stuff and having a crush on all his vape mates.
Alex Mixanally - a rich vanilla custard pummelled with bourbon whisky and salted caramel then finished off with hazelnut and coconut.
3 different custard-esque concentrates combine to make the base (LB VIC, CAP VC, WF Tahitian) using LB and WF means it is going to steep out a bit quicker although some people may need to give this a few days due to the CAP V1.
VTA salted caramel has been chosen as i find it the least "burnt" of all the salted caramels, well, all the ones that matter anyway... VTA golden syrup helps make that salted caramel a soft set caramel and also plays beautifully with the bourbon.
VTA bourbon used at 2% avoided any smokiness but wasn't as strong as i'd like so i topped up with a smidge of FLV bourbon just to make it present enough but not to overtake everything else.
FA coconut, Self Explanatory... used at 1.5% just to sit behind everything and not be overbearing.
If you like this recipe and what i do then please rate and review accordingly :)
This mix is based on a fall cocktail I recently came across https://jellytoastblog.com/cranberry-apple-cider-cocktail/ that looked really tasty for this time of year. I did not want a darker cider with alot of heavy spice like a mulled cider. I wanted a brighter crisp apple forward cocktail which I think I was able to achieve here .
Most cider flavors are a darker apple note often with spices - which I really did not want ; so the combination of INW two apples and WF Thai apple create a really bright crisp full apple flavor. Molinberry apple cider is a a lighter brighter cider which worked as the predominate cider note int his mix . The mint is light for me me and adds a bit of coolness in this mix, and is less noticeable as it steeps but I happen to enjoy that cooling in this mix
The sweet citrus of the blood orange and the tartness of the cranberry are nice accents notes to this predominate apple forward mix
The geingerale and golden syrup create some darker sweet ginger base notes for this mix with out distracting too much for the brightness of the mix.
Since this is based on a vodka cocktail I used VT russian vodka for the booze top note
SWEETNER: I added .5% of cap to help lift the apple notes a bit
Is it fried ice cream? Is it a snicker doodle cookie? Is it cinnamon toast crunch? I don't know
Is it delicious? YES

My original goal was to try and make a Mexican fried ice cream; Which is a big ball of ice cream, covered in corn cereal, flash fried, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and then immediately put in a freezer. When served they add a light drizzle of sugar syrup.
After many iterations I came to this, but this is a strong independent recipe, and it don't need no locked down flavor profile. I'll go over my flavor notes anyway
Ice Cream Base: This really all started after eyemakepizza's ice cream base came out. I really wanted to make a fried ice cream, and I loved the hell out of this base. It's creamy, buttery, and has vanilla, what's not to like? When used with the other flavors in this recipe it can easily be misinterpreted as the buttery notes of a sugar cookie.
Fried Cereal/Cookie Thing: Depending on the restaurant , you can still taste a bit of the fried notes on fried ice cream, and to get that flavor I started with CAP Funnel Cake and Cereal 27, though at higher %'s Funnel Cake can be gross, soggy, and overpowering, at low %'s it is nice when you are wanting to add a slight friend note to a recipe. CAP Cereal 27 was to get the corn crunch that is usually on a fried ice cream, which when combined with CAP Funnel cake makes this interestingly crunchy but also soft texture at the same time. Which makes me unable to decide if it's a cereal, cookie, or fried ice cream
The Drizzle: The fried ice creams I've had usually have a touch of cinnamon sugar on them with a light drizzle of a sugar syrup, which is where VT Golden Syrup and FLV Rich Cinnamon come into play. This is where it really makes it taste like a snicker doodle cookie, or a cinnamon toast crunch
Depending on your palette and frame of mind this really could be a fried ice cream, a warm buttery snicker doodle cookie, or from the cereal notes a cinnamon toast crunch that happens to have some melted ice cream in there. So what do you think you'll taste from this recipe? Give it a mix and try it out!

on the inhale a sweet buttery vanilla cake cookie that transitions to a sweet slightly tart orange
Tested on a Relaod RDA at 65 watts with a alien col
Sa madaline is a lovely and could probably go a bit higher is you want more of a cake note, but the the angel cake fills it out and adds light vanilla note
Aura will add a nice citrus zest note that works in this mix
Orange marmalade and golden syrup combine to had a honey orange note on the back end
I tried a wonderful soda when out at a trendy restaurant recently called Burgandee Creaming Soda by the Aussie based Bundaberg Brewing Co. This beverage got me me very excited. The depth of flavor was delicious AF!
Right away I was inspired to try and bring this to life in a vape.
While it appears by the label this beverage is meant to be based on red grapes there is very little grape flavor in this (if any). As described on their website it is described as a "Crafted to an authentic recipe, this red berry brew is one of a kind". I have to agree with that. This is a lovely blend of deep berries in a vanilla like enriched soda base that would satisfy even the most discerning of palettes.
This had me excited to get mixing!
I am familiar with the soda base required here using VT Creaming Soda (with that lovely vanilla), with the VT Fizzy sherbet working well together. However the slight lemony note on the back if the Fizzy sherbet was a concern but rather it really assisted the blend of the berries and compliments this profile beautifully.
I went to work to create a lovely Berry Syrup to add to the base and the blending of FLV Boysenberry, FLV Jammy Berry, & FA Blackcurrant is the right mix here to provide that lovely deep deliciousness.
However to add a little more depth of vanilla through the middle a few drops of FLV Smooth Vanilla were used with delicate finesse.
A little VT Golden Syrup & a little Cap Super sweet offers a lovely rich dark sweetness here in this profile.
After just 3 days steep, this is just as delicious as the wonderful experience I enjoyed with the excellent beverage I was inspired by.
Off the shake it was wonderful but the berry blend gets way better after the short steep.
I enjoy this at 65W on a Single 0.2ohm SST coil on a Recurve RDA.
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!
