It's getting hot out there. On day 13 of work straight. Bubba needs something to wet the whistle, and I need a vacation. Let's meet in the middle and make something nice and tropical to take our minds away from the chaos and to sunny shores. Very pineappley recipe
VT - Sugarloaf : If you haven't made yourself aquainted with this flavoring, you're missing out on something big. This pineapple is outta this world. Shame the Aussies are getting fucked over right now with vaping, because God damn they make some da'gum good flavors. At 2.5% this will make it the star of the show as VT flavors are quite potent and INW pineapple will back it up plenty
INW Pineapple - I love this flavor. I bounce back to it time and time again whenever I need a reliable pineapple for a fruit mix.
FLV - Cream : Been favoring this cream a bit lately as it carries a nice dairy note to it which really gives it an authentic cream feel. Brings up the middle body of the flavor quite a bit and takes some bite off the pineapple and hides any offnotes
TPA - Bavarian Cream : a nice thick dense cream flavor to act as the bottom note here
Here's the flavor breakdown. THANKS FOR FOLLOWING! 😁
FLV mango paired with Cap sweet mango is a perfect pairing. Brings a nice mango touch to this recipe on the exhale, with a natural tasting not too sweet mango that doesn't have the skin taste of mango which is good in recipes but not for this one.
CHEM- Pitaya is frickin delicious cactus fruit. Has a watery taste that is so unique, its the real star of this recipe. Handles the dragonfruit job on it's own. This is a dank flavor that rides through both the inhale and exhale to give body and wetness to the mix, while not being too overpowering. Needs a day or two steep to settle down a little throat hit.
INW Pineapple is an amazing bodied pineapple that adds to the Sugarloaf to bring a nice featured pineapple taste to the exhale. VT Sugarloaf helps support this by adding some nice fresh cut pineapple wedge taste.
TPA sour is used here in a small amount to provide a little zest to the fruits
Enjoy! Let me know what yo think in the comments. Shout-out to the FB group for being a part of the live mix.
Here ive tried to keep the origionality of the cake but tried to twist it to a pineapple doughnut base with a cherry centre. The cherry is a little stronger than i guess i wanted but in a good way because there was certain notes i wanted to hit where i comes across bright with a slight baked note to it.
Still testing so far so good
If you like lucozade Caribbean crush then this this recipe is for you, in fact if you like anything tropical and refreshing then this recipe is for you, if you like the recipes that I create then this recipe is for you, if you’re sitting in the sun and you’re hot then this recipe is for you. Pineapple hits you at the forefront, coconut steps in just after the pineapple and then mango and passionfruit sit just at the end to really convince you that this is a tropical mix, sugarloaf and queen have been a combo I’ve used for some time now and there’s no mistaking the fact that there is pineapple in this recipe, this was the first time I’d used VTA coconut in a recipe and it’s a really good coconut, it’s not dry/bitter it just oozes that coconut you might taste in Malibu rum. VTA yellow passion, it’s the best passionfruit for taking higher as far as a percentage is concerned. WF is a good passionfruit but if you take it too high then you’re in dirt city (too earthy above 1%), same goes for the mango, VTA shisha I find is the best and least earthy mango amongst its competitors, if you don’t have this one in your arsenal there you’re missing out. Fizzy sherbet gives a carbonated feel.
Sweetener and coolant totally subjective but adds to the overall profile.
If you mix this then please rate and review accordingly :)

IYSLPC = If You STILL Like Piña Coladas
Went into this hoping to improve on my old Piña Colada recipe from June 2016, which many people seemed to enjoy. Turned out to be a tougher job than anticipated, especially in balancing the pineapple and coconut. I think I succeeded, especially if you think that cold things should be cold. I definitely succeeded in making something just as good, with fewer ingredients. Here’s a little rundown of the whats and whys and why nots:
WF Coconut Custard - This is a poorly named concentrate. I don’t get any custard from it. Just a thick, smooth heavy cream with a little built-in coconut that doesn’t taste like suntan oil. The coconut tastes halfway between the coconut in Coco Lopez and the coconut in Malibu rum, but is light and needs another coconut to not get buried, which is where a touch of FA Coconut comes in. That more natural coconut flavor boosts the coconut and pulls it more in the coconut cream direction. FA Coconut is one of the few ingredients carried over from the original recipe. Why not TFA Coconut and TFA Coconut Candy? Well, for one thing, TFA Coconut is one that few people have. They’d sub TFA Coconut Extra and ruin it with suntan oil unless they’re making a large batch or using a dilution, since the original recipe used it at only 0.5% and I think Extra is about four times more potent. And it’s unnecessary thanks to WF Coconut Custard. TFA Coconut Candy has coconut flavor similar to WF Coconut Custard and it is creamy but wasn’t creamy enough for the original recipe, so I used FA Cream Fresh in that one. FLV Cream would have been better or at least easier, but I didn’t have that at the time and kept having to create version after version to force Cream Fresh to do what I wanted it to do. WF Coconut Custard is creamy enough by itself, eliminating the need for both Coconut Candy or any additional cream flavors.
FA Jamaican Special - Another carryover from the original recipe, at the same %.. It leaves me with the impression that there was some dark but unspiced rum in there, and that’s all I needed it to do. But why not VT Light Rum, you love VT Light Rum?! Because WS-23, that’s why. I do love the authentic booziness of VT Light Rum but it just doesn’t work for me with the WS-23 - it causes a weird clash of warm and cool. If you don’t care about “cold things should be cold,” or you care more about “cocktails should be boozy AF,” this would be the one thing I’d recommend subbing here. Sub VT Light Rum for WS-23 at the same amount. That’ll get you your booze without hurting the recipe. Personally, it always bothered me that I could not get cooling to work with the original recipe. Piña Colada is supposed to be frozen, dammit. But I could not get Koolada or Polar Blast to work with it. Koolada had a cardboardy off note and they both ate into the creaminess of the coconut something fierce. By front-loading the cooling using WS-23, I could finally freeze this sucker without sacrificing my coconut cream on the altar of coolant.
INW Pineapple - The third carryover, dropped down from 5.5% to 3% to get the pineapple-coconut balance right. I looked at this one differently than before. The original recipe was eventually built around INW Pineapple, which is so thin it required support from two other pineapples to put a good amount of pineapple meat on those bones and hold up against all that coconuttiness without things getting weird. But this time INW Pineapple is the one in the backup role. I thought VT Sugarloaf Pineapple might even be able to do it alone, but it imparted a strange lemony flavor when I tried to push it hard enough to balance properly. INW Pineapple makes a clean backup to bring the pineapple forward without any BS. VT Sugarloaf is the main reason why this recipe is better than the original that I worked so hard on so long ago. I think it makes the difference between a piña colada blended with fresh island pineapple and piña colada made from canned juice. It tastes fresher and more refreshing and has a dense base that gets down into that coconut. After testing 14 other pineapples, I never even bothered trying to use any of them pineapples until I reached for INW Pineapple to back it up. Even if you don’t care to try this recipe, get this flavor. I could easily be the difference between success and failure for whatever you’re trying to do with pineapple, as long as you don’t mind a short steep to get rid of a little metallic off-note that it has off a fresh shake.
Sweetener. Unnecessary here. Add some if you must, but try it without first.

Ok so I like tropical smoothie's sue me and I'm brown so we call them lassi's. I wanted a nice pineapple mango smoothie then the lemony note in Yoghurt drink got me thinking about adding a dash of lemon/lime. The VT YD can get overpowered pretty easily in a mix so the FW yogurt is being used to back it up. You don't want to loose that yoghurty goodness in the fruit. I decided to take my go to pineapple mix and add some of the Sugarloaf pineapple to it, its got a nice syrupy texture and mouthfeel and it helps to add to the juiciness factor.
Mango is tough to nail without the mango funk, but this mix of VT Shisha Mango and Fa Indian Special seems to do the trick without overpowering the pineapple. Mango is the support here with the up front pineapple. The shisha lime just adds works well enough with the VT to add some additional brightness and a touch of that citrus bite.
I also use WS-23 in it and you can adjust it up or down. No sweetener or softener required here so there was not point in adding SS or TFA Marshmallow to it.
This mix is a delightfully refreshing, slightly sour blueberry gummy candy ring. The vanilla swirl brings the recipe together and give it a good amount of body and slightly creamy texture. It's great for an all day vape or use it as a pallet cleanser. It's great off the shake and even better after a 48 hour steep.
Releasing this so that people pay more attention to FA Mango indian special because it is one of if not the best mango flavors out. When you add flv mango with it it becomes a complex deep mango flavor that will blow you away. The inw pineapple is used to add juiciness and sugarloaf pineapple is there because I love it. Anytime I am using pineapple I throw sweet coconut in because they work well together. Go get mango indian special trust me.
