Setup: Recoil w/ flavor barrel, Dual 12 wrap 24g 3.5mm SS316 @.31 ohms. 60w power, 450F temp limit. Full Cotton Wicks.

Testing: Vape Train Persian Lime, 1%, 4% and 8%, 60/40 VG/PG base, Steeped 16 days.

Flavor Description: A pretty well-rounded lime, mixing tartness, sweetness, and a bit of zest.

The lime here is all over the place, in mostly a good way. Vape Train says this is their realistic lime, and it definitely hits some of those kind of notes. I get a pretty realistic lime zest in the top notes. Not overwhelming or too harsh, but manages to be fairly present, at least before a longer steep. There is also a fairly realistic lime tartness to this. I wouldn't really call it fresh lime juice acidic, but the tartness adds some contrast and feels fairly realistic for something like a limeade. That tartness and zest plays off a sweeter, heavier base. Unsteeped, it's a little less thick than FA Distilled Lime, but it also isn't nearly as harsh. I think the base ends up sweet enough it kind of pulls this off a super realistic lime profile, but it's pretty well balanced.

And what would a citrus be without at least a little bit of weirdness in steeping? While this doesn't completely fade out like some other lime flavors, it does seem to change a bit. Off a shake, this actually seems to have quite a bit of fairly realistic lime zest. It's a bit thin, not terribly harsh, and reminds me a lot of a fuller version of FA Cold Pressed. Understandably, some of those really heavy zest notes start to die down with a steep. At about a week, I was still getting some zest but it was definitely a bit less aggressive.

This also seems to sweeten up considerably on a steep. At a week the uptick in sweetness was noticeable. At 16 days, it seems even sweeter and it's pushing a bit towards a candy or limeade type flavor. It's not that obnoxious bright "green" kind of skittles lime taste like something like FLV Lime, but more of a sweeter, heavier lime hard candy. Still has some pop and acidity like an actual lime, but it's gotten heavier and kind of sugary. It's kind of reminding me of a lime version of what some of the lemon flavors do where they basically turn into a lemonhead with a steep.

Trying to put this in some context, seems somewhere between the sweeter, brighter FA distilled lime and the more realistic FA Cold Press lime. As it steeps, it also picks up some of the sweetness of something like FW Key Lime or TPA Key Lime. It's the utility infielder of the lime world.

Off-Flavors: Nothing un-limeish. Seems to steep out considerably sweeter than it starts out, so that's a bit odd.

Throat Hit: Light. Pretty mellow for a lime or citrus in general.

Percentage testing: At 1%, especially steeped, I'm not getting a ton out of this. Some light tartness, some heavier candy sweetness, but it doesn't really feel fleshed out or filled in at all. I'm tasting a bit of my base through this.

At 4%, this is starting to fill in. That lime zest is coming through a bit more,there is still some tartness, and that sweeter base is definitely deeper and more solid. Balance is fairly good here, and there isn't much harshness.

At 8%, this doesn't really feel blown out. The zest is a bit heavier but it isn't too harsh and the base is feeling pretty heavily candied. While I'm getting most of what I want out the flavor, there isn't really anything that makes me think this couldn't comfortably go a bit higher.

Vape Train suggests using this mixed 3-5% and standalone 6-9%. That actually doesn't seem far off. It's one of the least intense lime flavors I've had, especially with a steep. Just based on these tests, and if you're planning on anything with a steep, I'd probably be using around 3-4% as an accent, and maybe 8% as a primary note but that seems flexible. As a S&V or short steep, I'd probably go at 4-5%.

Uses & Pairings: Kind of a catch-all lime. At lower percentages the zest and tartness are going to come through a bit easier than the sweeter parts of this. Should work well as a lime accent in stuff like fruit mixes or sweeter beverages. I think it's probably a bit too sweet for really heavy cocktail applications.

Should mix pretty well with heavier creams and custards in general, adding some decent lime flavor without coming across as too tart, bitter, or harsh.

Should also work in bakeries or cheesecakes, especially at higher percentages where that sweetness really comes out.

Second Opinions: Noted had a big old lime fiesta recently and VT Persian Lime was covered. Starting at 54:50 the mighty ID10-T and some other jerk talk about this flavor. Selected quotes: "I dig this one." "Better alternative to (FA) Distilled." "lime zest up top, sort of that syrupy type base, less fizzy but a whole lot more limey than Distilled." "not harsh at all."
Here is the product page from Vape Train. Their description: "Persian Lime has a real lime taste that’s sour just like a real lime, this flavour can be used and paired with other fruits such as Apricot, Banana, , Fig, Grapefruit, Guava, Lemon, Lychee, Orange, Mango, Papaya, Passion Fruit, Persimmon, Pineapple, Raspberry and Strawberry. Persian lime is also suitable for your alcohol beverage e-liquid recipes which may include Brandy, Cognac, Gin, Rum, Tequila & Vodka." That is a whole lot of things. After a steep I'd quibble a bit about how realistic this comes across, but yeah... throw it in whatever.

Loved the combination of pistachio and lime used in ID10-T’s recipe and used part of it to make a cannoli. VT Sweet Cream and NYCC make up the filling, while WF cannoli Shell and Biscuit Base make a delicious spicy wrapper. Subbing VT Creme Brulee for NYCC at the same percentage is also a tasty combination. Anyways, it’s good!

Profile: Yoghurt Drink with Matcha

Notes:

I'm a giant fan of Lime Drink (http://alltheflavors.com/recipes/151335#lime_drink_by_maxsavage) made by @AlfredPudding and @SavageMax so much, so it inspired me to make this.
Compared to their original recipe, I adjusted the numbers for the VT Yoghurt Drink a little, to not overpower the FLV Eisai tea too much.

The idea of adding FLV Eisai to the original recipe came to me the day I first tried Eisai. I found it fitting so well, that I had to try and see if my nose was onto something good here.
The FLV Eisai tea adds a nice earthy Matcha flavor to the mix, that I find go super well with the remaining ingredients in this.

I fiddled around with the lime a little, tried a few different ones that I felt would perhaps go well with the Eisai, and I landed on VT Persian lime, as I find it to be a perfect mixture of sweet and zesty for the Eisai.

To add a finishing touch, I added a little vanilla into it, as I in the past have experienced with adding vanilla to the Lime Drink recipe and where I have tried a few, everywhere from FA Vanilla Bourbon, CAP French Vanilla, CAP Vanilla Custard, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, FLV Vanilla Pudding. But I finally settled on INW Shisha Vanilla, as I find it to give that nice vanilla top note that doesn't bully around so much.

I have tried to not stray too far off of the original recipe, but I think this what I have here is pretty enjoyable.

Give it 2 days steep for it all to blend in nicely, but works fine as SNV.

Enjoy!

This summer time recipe was formulated for one of my best friend’s wife’s, she was craving a PIMM’s type recipe without the alcoholic hit so I got to work on this for her.
According to her it’s the best ejuice she’s ever had and if this was the only juice she could ever vape again she would be a happy girl! It’s comments like this that keep myself and many other mixers longing to help people on their journey with quitting the stinkys. Feel free to add your sweetener of choice, I personally enjoy this the most with 0.50% CAP SUPER SWEET and I must also say this recipe works great with WS-23 @0.50%. Please mix it up and leave me your feedback good or bad (S&V APPROVED) peaks @ 3 days. P.S *** if you prefer an alcoholic tinge, remove the CAP sweet guava and add FLV Brut bubble wine @ 2% 👌🏻

Wait, wait .... WHY IS IT CALLED BRAZILIAN LEMONADE AND NOT BRAZILIAN LIMEADE ?!?!? I don't see ANY effing lemons anywhere in this recipe !!! Because the word for both lemons and limes in Portuguese is limão. In the US this drink is served at the Brazilian steakhouse chain Fogo de chao. - I have altered one aspect of the traditional drink recipe - I added raspberry. Feel free to omit the raspberry concentrates from this recipe if you don't have them or don't like raspberry. Note all of the concentrates I used to simulate carbonation - I have seen recipes for the actual drink with and without the bubble factor - I personally LOVE all things bubbly.

This is a spot on Moito - for me it s just the perfect mix of sweetness, lime and mint

This was mixed for the PRIDE fundraiser, for the Ali Forney center for LBGTQ homeless youth on Fresh03 channel https://youtu.be/5Xa1eZqfwK8

The base for this mix is lemon lime soda - the lemon helps to boost the lime in the mix and add a bit of sweet tartness
The combination of person lime which has some intrinsic sweetness and body added to the bight slightly tart lime Tahity creates a really nice full real lime
I wanted a sweet mint and the combination of INW mint and spearmint provides a realistic sweet mint

VT light rum is the only rum I would use in this mix, I did not want to add coconut rum or a spiced rum I wanted the lime and mint to stand up and the rum to come out on the finish
Raw sugar works really well as the base sweetness ( NOTE: I added .05% cap sweetener to help lift the lime in this mix)

Mixed for the fundraiser on Fresh03's Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3WsPJP8QfvxiiIBRr18lPQ) for the Ali Forney foundation!

FLV Gin is our base note, and the juniper shines through the whole mix. At 2% it's prominent but not overbearing. .25% Bar Back Bitters helps carry the tonic through the finish

3% VT Persian Lime, with a boost from 1% TPA Key Lime really helps push the lime all the way through.

3% LA Lemonade provides a nice citrus base, and WF Passionfruit with TPA Cucumber gives a fruity body and helps to tame the top end of LA Lemonade and keep it from pushing out the Lime in favor Lemon.

If you're a sucker for cold things I think this would be perfect with .5 to 1% WS-23 as well.

Enjoy!

The pineapple guava combo is just pure lust. On Lust Island they pour that sweet syrupy mix all over you and lick it off. Adding a little smoothie action never hurt anyone. Even a little prick(cactus) goes a long way here. Once you try it, you'll never want to leave Lust Island.

This was a collaboration between @humanpuck and I.

A group effort from @NordicFlavors @staybert myself and final edits by @ID10-T.

An attempt at a ginger rum lime drink built around TPA Ginger Ale. Not the best way to go since ginger ale has a heavy vanilla cream going on that is not hidden at this high a percentage. It's good, but a cleaner ginger drink built around FLV Ginger is probably in the future... until then, here is a solid balanced drink that gives you an excuse to use your Gingers
