I've been on the search for a nice Grapefruit soda, and failing to find one, I thought I'd give it a go.
I saw OOO Squirts Soda which is the prime flavor in this case, but I felt it need a little more support.
I like a heavy grapefruit flavor so borrowing from my favorite Developed Recipe - Mellow Pomelo I used the combination of FW Ruby Red and VT Honey Pomelo. I tried a couple of other combinations and always came back to this duo.
To support the soda side of things there's nothing better than FLV Citrus soda and a healthy dose of CAP Lemon Lime to really bring the soda forward and blend some citrus into the mix. For a more rounded soda flavor.
A dash of Super Sweet to round things out a bit.
You can add .25% WS-23 if you like, but I prefer it without.
It seems to be the thing today to list what you are testing your recipe with, so here you go. Series Mech, .3 ohm dual round wire at about 250 Watts on a Kennedy RDA.

A refreshing summer time mix with a slight twist that is great right of the shake.
On the inhale you get a bright sweet tangerine that transitions to a juicy sweet and tart pink grapefruit that finishes with a slightly dry tonic tartness and light sweet basil note . ( DONT let the basil scare you - if you are looking for something different and like mint and fruit, you may like this)
Honey pomelo is just my favorite pink grapefruit , it is wet and sweet and tart - if you want it tarter add some inw grapefruit, or pink guava or cap grapefruit to it
Golden syrup adds a light dark syrup note and cap super sweet adds a top note sweetness for for the citrus
Tangeriene adds some nice rounded sweetness and body to the mix, if you want a bit more citrus bitterness then FA tanger wound be an option
tonic water is just that it is tonic water, with that tart slightly bitter note on the finish and works really well with the sweet lemon and lime notes of the WF lemon lime soda
I Use basil from time to time rather then mint in a beverage/ cocktail to add an interesting sweet herbal note to a mix that complements fruit and it just works - it may not be for every one but I really enjoy it and room note it provides BUT USE it LOW
i added some ws 23 to mine as a option
Traditionally, the Mexican Paloma is served on the rocks and prepared by mixing tequila, fresh lime juice and grapefruit-flavored soda, like Jarritos.
In the US - the cocktail is often made with Fresca or Squirt.
This mix is very very much like Fresca with a dash of tequila and lime. iIt is incredibly refreshing and easily an ADV for me. tested on the reload s at 50 watrs.
The combination of citrus soda, honey pomelo and Pink guava really create a spot on fresca soda off the shake
citrus soda to me is a slightly flat sprite
Honey pomelo is a ripe bright grapefruit with out the biting notes and is slightly sweet
Pink guava brings out more of the pink grapefruit notes and at this percent had a very very light hop note which works with the tequila
Lime Tahiti pushes those grapefruit notes up top and is noted on the inhale
Tequila agave is hard to describe but to me it is very similar to cactus but slightly sweeter and wetter . it is smooth no harshness or booze in the least . I am noting it more on the exhale
NOTE I added a drop of WS 23 and FLV sweetness to add vibrancy and sweetness to the soda . CAP grapefruit could be used around 7% instead of Honey Pomelo but it will have a slightly bitter tart note and leans more white grapefruit then pink
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!

his was based off of a crown royal apple valentines day cocktail. Brandy is used here since there are very few solid cognac flavors that come across as cognac without some hard to avoid off notes.
On the inhale you get nice sweet apple brandy that transitions to with a slight tart lemon berry finish. Best vaped in an RDA at 60 - 70 watts (4.2v) this is a easy all day vape
apple-cranberry and two - apples work to create the cranberry apple fruit juice for this mix. Apple cranberry is just a great tart slight sweet flavor that is perfect for a cocktail mix Two apples has more of a fermented apple similar to a sparkling cider and works with the brandy
bandy has a sweet grape that leans almost dark raisin fruit note with a nice warm boozie . There is also a bit of an orange peel finish. it is ideal for cocktails.
Pomegranate and grenadine create a pretty solid genedeine type of syrup. WF grenadine is thin but has a solid flavor and needs help. FA pomegranate is really close to a solid grenadine so it is used here.
milk and honey works for some body and darker sweetness
Lemon FE is just a solid fresh lemon that will hold up and last in this mix , as many lemons tend to fade. honey Pomelo adds a nice finish to the mix and helps the pomegranate and lemon. f you want a more prominent sour note try a bit of VT lemon sour in addition.
NOTES: FA brandy can be used in place of VT but it does not carry a boozie note but will work nicely here are as well. I like a bit of sweetener with fruit so I added FLV sweetness at .50% . FLV cranberry can be subed for apple - cran for a tarter mix. but I really like that touch of apple in the cran apple.
