DIY E-Liquid Recipe

Mixed up for Flavor-Pro's The Year of Mixing - A weekly challenge to inspire creative mixing.

Inspiration: Week 29 - Hot to Trot
This week we're taking a trip back in time a bit to the early 1900s and the pass time of the rich and poor alike - The Kentucky Derby was a larger spectacle than even Nascar is today. Ladies in their large hats and finery, gentlemen smoking their cigars and drinking their brandy, the rich in their boxes served luxury items and the poor in the dirt and muck screaming for a chance to win it big.
You've been invited to dine in the luxury booths with the likes of Rockefeller and Morgan and all the big wigs and their wives, maybe even a president or two during the big race. Let the scene take you away and inspire a juice to fit the time and how you might experience that day.

Nothings says Kentucky Derby more than Bourbon and Mint Juleps.

This an apricot mint julep crossed with a fine tobacco.

The julep: TFA Apricot, FLV Apricot, TFA Kentucky Bourbon, VT Bourbon, INW Natural Mint, and WS-23.

The tobacco: FLV Cured, FLV Native, and TFA Red Oak.

Off the shake, I get a cold blast of slightly boozy, stone fruit and mint over the top of a down to earth, smooth tobacco. The tobacco note here is extremely nostalgic for me . . . it reminds me of youthful days spent in my grandfather's tobacco barn. Though mint juleps were not on the menu, he had apricot trees and acres of tobacco. To be more representative of my younger days, I would have to 86 the mint julep and white trash this up with Lord Calvert and Sun Drop . . . but nobody wants that (with the exception of my Uncle Willie and he's been long gone for years). So, I'm going to keep it somewhat classy.

You can't have a julep without mint and lots of ice . . . so I went relatively heavy on the INW Natural Mint and WS-23.

When all is said and done, this is a cool, minty tobacco laced with bourbon and apricots.
