Mixed live for Fresh's SaturDIY show on 8/25. We did bases, and I wanted to try a fuller implementation for VT Milkshake Base.
FW Vanilla Bean Ice Cream was my vanilla ice cream of choice, primarily because I didn't want to bury this all with peppery acetyl propinyl. It's good, but it's a bit thin. The vanilla is also pretty bright.
FA Fresh Cream is for some volume. It's filler, basically, but I like my milkshakes a bit on the the thin side in general.
The LB Vanilla Ice Cream was added back in for some richness. It was running thin without it. You could go higher than that, of course. But I'm joyless and I don't like my milkshakes super rich. I'm about that soft swerve life.
AND THE VT MILKSHAKE BASE. It's cool. It's not a base per se, but it adds a certain indefinable milkshake quality. It's malty, a bit funky, and deepens the cream and waters down the ice cream. It's a bridge flavor, basically, if we're going to use weird DIY terms.
This is built to just drop stuff on top of and go. I've tried it with 5% FW Blackberry and then 4% FA Kiwi and been really happy with the results. Break it if you want.
