This is my take on a simple blue razz lemonade. LB and OSSDIY are clearly the best Blue Razz flavors, but even combined at a high percentage need a little support, which is why added in the INW Rasp. I love using INW rasp low to bolster the Blue Razz flavor and make it pop.
I didn't want to cheat this recipe and build on my puckenade, so I took a shot at using some other lemons. I really like the VT Lemonade clear its a nice lemonade with a touch of fizz, I don't really get the fizz in this, but that's because I didn't want this to be fizzy. The vt sour lemon is extremely potent and adds some of that fresh lemon pucker and the FW Lemonade is just a lemonade support.
I used the TFA Pear as a bit of sweet blender along the cactus to round some of the sharp edges. For you cactus haters out there I can't taste any cactus since it's used so low. The WS-23 and Cap SS can be used in whatever quantity you prefer. For a simple recipe this took 2 additional revisions after I first mixed it, so this was nice little challenge.
A simple lemon-lime soda that's zesty and refreshing, gentle on the throat.
I find that FLV Citrus Soda and WF Lemon Lime Soda have an aspartame-like sweetness that's off-putting while CAP Lemon Lime is too astringent for my taste buds. I wanted to make a simple version that suited my own taste buds and hopefully yours too.
5% VT Lemonade Clear: a light lemon forward/ lime soda. The lime notes get too piney any higher than 5%. However, this needs help to get it where I want it:
2% VT Sour Lemon and 1.25% FE Lemon boost lemon notes and add tartness and volume.
1.5 % VT Fizzy Sherbet adds "effervescence" and light lemon/lime. When used over 1.5%, I find its lime notes get way too bitter and intrusive.
0.25% Super Sweet rounds out sweetness.
WS-30 for cooling effect and to enhance fizz effect.
Needs at least 1 day minimum steep. Don't make big batches as this mix will lose vibrancy after 1 week, although still vapeable.
0.30% VT Ginger Root for a hint of fresh ginger.
Bright berry blended lemonade with a touch of hops from the pink guava made for @freshipies Saturday DIY show on lemonades 7/20
the combo of boysenberry/ raspberry, strawberry and sweet currant provide a really balanced red berry mix with base, middle and top notes
FLV lemonade is a sweet lemonade but needs some top notes lemonade clear provides some of the brighter notes along with lemon sour
pink guava adds some of those tart notes and sits in the middle and provides a light hops note at the finish
raw sugar provides some of the darker sweetness and cap supersweet provides of the brighter sweetness
OPTIONAL WS 23 at .5% and cap super sweet at .30%
Ok here we go. This one is a nice refreshing summer drink vape.
Lemonade Base - VT Lemonade Clear is an interesting lemonade with a bit of Fiz, FLV lemonade help to enhance the longevity of the lemonade. SC Lemon gives you some of that authentic lemon while VT Sour Lemon gives you that nice lemon zest. This is a really solid base for the lemonade.
FA Pear is used really for sweetness to go along with the FLV Wild Melon/JF Honeydew combo to give us a honeydew forward melon mix.
Finally the FLV Boysenberry helps to syrup up the fruits and add a touch of berry to the mix. Enjoy!
This was made for the KINDGROUND fundraiser on the DIY or DIE you tube channel
Yes I know there are 100s of lemonade and berry mixes, what makes this mix is the use of a bit of lime to that lemonade and the use of VT lemon sour,. This is a nice bright sweet berry lemonade with a tart finish. It is juicy and refreshing
Razzleberry and Blue raz create a bright sweet and sour mixed berry note, that supports the tart aspects of lemon
VT lemonade clear and VT lemon sour have a bright slightly candy lemonade with nice tart pop ( if you want more sour note feel free to boost VT lemon sour %)
Fizzy sherbert supports the citrus and the bright raspberry of this mix
I like WS - 23 so I added it at .50%
I like adding the cap super sweet to this mix it really round this out and lifts the profile up
My take on an Arnold Palmer updated with a smoother mix and less angst. While originally created as a concept mix, I did actually enjoy it. This is an updated version largely improved and yet different from original in many profound ways. It is a reimagining of life after being focused on problems, this here is the solution.
INW Plum/FA BC - Not very many recipes use Plum, but I loved its dryness, yet it was just a hair short of full. Plum to me is a bit thin at 1 and at 2 it's at it's limit. I wanted to give it a deeper fruity vibe and sweeten it up so I went with FA Black Cherry, and a touch of FW Sweetener.
FA Black Tea/VT Lemonade Clear/VT Sour lemon - This combo was used to create a lighter tea feel and a less sweet lemonade base to fit the dryness of the fruit. FA BT can probably be bumped up a bit if you want more tea out of it or maybe add a support with something less intense/more forgiving.
FLV Yakima Hops/Pink Guava/INW Cactus - This adds some very slight funk to the whole mix that at these low levels adds just a hint of tropical funk and wetness. It folds under the rest quite nicely to me.
FA Polar blast - I also mix this with Polar Blast at 0.4%,
