sweet, juicy candy apple for this weeks mixin vixen episode.
This mix is based on a fall cocktail I recently came across https://jellytoastblog.com/cranberry-apple-cider-cocktail/ that looked really tasty for this time of year. I did not want a darker cider with alot of heavy spice like a mulled cider. I wanted a brighter crisp apple forward cocktail which I think I was able to achieve here .
Most cider flavors are a darker apple note often with spices - which I really did not want ; so the combination of INW two apples and WF Thai apple create a really bright crisp full apple flavor. Molinberry apple cider is a a lighter brighter cider which worked as the predominate cider note int his mix . The mint is light for me me and adds a bit of coolness in this mix, and is less noticeable as it steeps but I happen to enjoy that cooling in this mix
The sweet citrus of the blood orange and the tartness of the cranberry are nice accents notes to this predominate apple forward mix
The geingerale and golden syrup create some darker sweet ginger base notes for this mix with out distracting too much for the brightness of the mix.
Since this is based on a vodka cocktail I used VT russian vodka for the booze top note
SWEETNER: I added .5% of cap to help lift the apple notes a bit
Did I tell you I hate zombies yet? I hate zombies. But of course, we were doing Zombies on SaturDIY'ing with fresh03 and Friends! So I had to do something and the only zombie I like is the song by The Cranberries. Today is an apple cranberry cider. And really when I mean cider, I mean juice. I don't drink much of anything alcoholic and I like my cider sweet.
FLV Apple Cider/FLV Ginger = the cider component. I feel the ginger brightens it.
FLV Apple Cranberry/FLV Cranberry = that's a strong cranberry, I don't think any more would stay tasty, but it needs to be strong to stay bright in front of all the apple in this mix.
INW Two Apples/WF Thai Apple = a strong vibrant apple that you just want to bite in.
WF Starfruit/CAP Super Sweet = this is honey sweetness, it rounds the vape and starfruit also gives the mix that nice flesh body of the apple.
It's sweet, apple and cranberry with a golden honey touch. This mix is bright and it has character.
Enjoy, be queer and vape on!

My goal was to create a simple apple profile - Fresh and juicy.
When I was working on my version of Camp Tigerclaw (@ConcreteRiver), I had an opportunity to test a lot of apple flavours. Many of them were either bad, average or didn't have potential to stand on their own. The few that stuck with me, were FLV Apple and INW Shisha Apple - I knew I could build a nice apple profile with these flavours.
I tried to find the right ratio with the help of other apples, but somehow always failed or the results were just not satisfying. Then I came across this recipe - Pantsless Krampus by @SlashaLO. It was a tobacco mix, but with a great apple stone. The percentages seemed alright, but for the recipe to stand on its own, it required a few tweaks.
FLV Apple is the main player here. It delivers a mix between red and green apple. It's tart, bright and does a great job of imitating an apple, but was too "acidic". It needed help from another red apple, and FLV Red Apple was a good fit (another choice might've been INW Shisha Apple, but I liked it more with this one). The problem with this flavour though, is that if you go high, you will not only get a red apple flavour, but also some kind of "rotten cider" taste. Maybe this could be covered up in the original recipe by the tobacco, but the original ratio didn't work.
WF Thai Apple adds some depth to the mix.
INW Pear is not here for the juiciness, but rather to give the mix some "fleshiness". Pears are usually very light flavours, but not the INW one. Works really well here, and it also blends seamlessly.
I encourage you to use sweetener here, CAP SS or FLV Sweetness - Since the apple flavours are very acidic, the sucralose helps tremendously.
