Personally i think that a summer vape should be either fruit or ice cream/sorbet . Custards and bakeries are just too heavy in hot weather and much more suited to autumn and winter . I wanted to mix something simple avoiding most of the usual standard fruits . I decided on grapefruit as it's something i haven't used very much previously . I chose VT Grapefruit as it is quite authentic tasting and also pairs well with other citrus flavours and combined this with Inawera Grapefruit to add more tartness and body . FA Mandarin is a real favourite of mine . It adds some sweet , zesty notes and i think it works well alongside the grapefruit . I added FLV Guanabana to give a tropical backnote without overpowering the grapefruit and mandarin . I've used a small amount of sweetener and ws-23 but this is optional depending on personal taste , can be higher or lower if you prefer .
Although this is can be a shake and vape i think it is much better after a 24 - 48 hour steep.
Fresh summertime soda for y'alls.
This one is long overdue, the legend @ID10-T requested this... months and months ago. Finally I got my shit together and finished it, and I think it turned out pretty darn good.
FLV Citrus Soda: I wanted to see if this could be used in another scenario than the usual lemon/lime soda base, and it seems it could. Adding the other bitter and tangy grapefruit flavors on top of it definitley bends it in that direction, while still getting the "fizz" from the citrus soda.
VT Grapefruit: Honestly I can't understand why this flavor isn't used more. After having tried most grapefruit flavors out there, this is probably my favourite one. It's got quite a citrus punch to it, almost a fizzy feel, which I like a lot and it complements citrus soda perfectly. It also has the right admount of bitterness that you expect from a grapefruit.
INW Grapefruit: Has a bit of sweetness in it, something that VT's is lacking, although they are very similar and together they make for a well rounded bitter grapefruit flavor. I picked these two flavors because they are relatively bitter and "citrusy", as I want it to be a contrast to the sweet pineapples.
INW Pineapple: Very fresh and juicy pineapple, almost like a pineapple juice. It's pretty weak in flavor though, hence the high percentage used.
CAP Golden Pineapple: Together with INW it makes for a well rounded pineapple flavor. Also very sugary sweet, and I feel like it adds some body to it, which INW is lacking.
WS-23: I haven't included the coolant in the recipe, but this one is extremely coolant compatible. I'd go for 0.5%, but I know everyone has their own preference depending on recent usage.
We did the Metal show this Saturday on Fresh's YouTube Channel and I wanted to create something that was red, weird and metal !
VT Blood Orange Champagne/WF Sour Ball Candy = A weird but red orange soda/energy drink base.
WF Sour Watermelon Candy/FLV Wild Melon = for a strong but rounder watermelon that shines.
VT Grapefruit/FW Ruby Red Grapefruit = VT Grapefruit is syrupy and works to clash with the watermelon. FW Ruby Red Grapefruit is is just that, red and it works well with the blood orange of the soda.
CAP Lemon Lime = The magic thing that binds all these flavors together and make them work as a profile.
Extra = You can add some WS-23 if you so wish, or some FA Polar. This will also benefit from some good old mint if you like that kind of thing.
Enjoy, be queer and rock on !
