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%,
Here's a nice flavorful blackberry lemonade. This lemonade base can be used with other fruits, just respect the balance and have fun playing with it. I used it here with blackberry because I like the depth a dark berry gives to something bright like a lemonade.
The FW blackberry at 1.5% is more than enough to add that sweet, mashed up blackberry flavor. This is one of my favorite blackberries. It can be a bit candied if used higher, but I used a touch of Forest Fruit here to add a bit of complexity and keep that candy note in check.
This 3 lemon combo is so good. CAP Lemon Sicily helps drive the lemon. It's not tart and whispy like FA (although I do like FA too) and it has more staying power. You could use something like FE lemon here to do the same thing.
The FLV & VT lemonade as a team make the perfect duo for a lemonade. I could have went simple and used FW lemonade at 6% or LA, or even PUR which has a solid lemonade...but none of these by themselves gives me what I wanted. This combo has a nice brightness, and the flavor is undeniably lemonade. It's not lemon juice, or lemon peel...it's lemonade with no off notes and no harshness. Also, this won't cloud up your juice.
*Add 0.25-0.5% WS-23 for a nice chill.
Give this a shot, and don't be afraid to try different fruits to throw in there. Have fun with it! It's good off a shake but even better the next day.
What happens when you combine a botanical gin with some chopped up avocado add some gomme syrup, lemon juice and top it all off with some chilli sauce?? Should it work??? It actually does very well.
Take this recipe as a bit of fun as much as I’m enjoying it it’s never going to win recipe of the year but it does highlight what can be done with flavours at first glance you wouldn’t deem workable.
VTA botanical gin is such an awesome gin it highlights what a gin should be without really needing anything else to compliment it. It holds up very well to what you throw in there with it and it’s profile hits you on the inhale every time without fail.
FLV Avocado is very accurate it has some meaty inner flesh that’s very creamy,fatty and slightly nutty in its texture adding a little guanabana lifts this flavour to another level giving it a more creamy tropical flavour without losing what it’s meant to be.
VTA Lemonade clear and sour lemon add the gomme and some acidity to the gin and avocado. Creating gomme isn’t something I’m familiar with it’s basically a simple syrup however a lemonade flavour should mimic this very well without just dumping sweetener in there that could mute flavours.
FLV Heat seems strange but I wanted to finish this cocktail with a little twist. Think of this as a dressing avocado is always dressed with some kind of dressing especially in salads so why not here. Let’s mimic the FLV heat here as a little chilli 🌶 sauce drizzle over the top. It honestly works gin,avocado,lemon and a little heat at the end is just wonderful.
Mix it up and see for yourself I could of showcased gin the traditional way but who wants boring
