DIY E-Liquid Recipe

This recipe is a Work In Progress.

It might be amazing, but it's creator doesn't think it's finished yet.

Rudolph on Acid - My Christmas gift to the mixing community.

This is not a remix/clone of SMAX - Pony On Acid, it is however, inspired by that profile . I've been working for some time to clone Pony on Acid, and I've gotten close but it's not ready for release. I did however, want to release my version of what I imagined this profile could be.

SMAX describes Pony On Acid as "A blend of magical berries laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze." The images SMAX uses to describe this profile includes, strawberries, pineapple, and raspberries atop a light, fluffy cream, and that truly describes what I taste in the original. However, there are some off notes in the original that I get. There is a "hairspray" or "floral" note that is very off-putting and the "cream" layer seems a bit thin. So, I decided to use the profile as a guide but approach it differently.

To me, the cream needed to be fuller, and have more of a mouth-feel. I decided to go with a custard, but not a very "eggy" custard. FA Custard Premium was just right for this. If you're in the USA, you'll probably have a hard time finding this flavoring because FA North America doesn't want it sold in the USA. But DIY-ers can still purchase it through .

In the original, I could definitely taste a marshmallow and it fit very well with the profile, so I stayed with that note and used FA Marshmallow at 2%.

The original's description states it is "laced with a euphoric strawberry glaze". You can simulate a "Strawberry Glaze" in many different ways. You use CAP Sweet Strawberry in conjunction with another strawberry and maybe add TPA Sweet Raspberry, and I actually did use that in some of my versions. However, I think the TPA Sweet Raspberry was what was giving the mix a "Hairspray" off note. I decided not to add a raspberry note and by doing so, eliminated the off note. Also, to keep with the profile and to consolidate the recipe as much as I could, I used only one strawberry, JF Strawberry Sweet. It has a nice "cooked" strawberry note much like a strawberry glaze.

The original's description doesn't mention anything about a pineapple. However, in all of the images SMAX uses to describe the profile, they show pineapple with the strawberries and in the original I definitely get a pineapple note. They are probably using CAP Golden Pineapple but in my mix it seemed a bit weak even at 1.5%. I decided I wanted a more distinct pineapple and TPA was the obvious choice, but you have to be careful with it because it can be harsh over .5% and can take over a mix. So I used it very low at only .25%.

I added Super Sweet at .5% to lift everything up make it more vivid. If that's too much, you can always reduce it to your liking.

I do believe this mix stays true to the profile while expressing my own preferences. Anyone who enjoys Pony On Acid, I hope, will enjoy this as well. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This can be a shake and vape but it's best to steep it for 2-5 days.
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)

this is just a nice vape, i tried it with and without the sweetener, and i like it with it. it just pushes that strawberry a litle bit more to what GrimmGreen describes as "glaze".. very nice recipe!

Never tried the Pony version - but Rudolph has it going on! Love this recipe. The Strawberry and Pineapple is very balanced (IMHO) and layered really well with the custard and marshmallow to smooth it out. Nice fruit ADV for someone who is looking for a warm weather vape - this is the ticket!

Thanks for sharing another winner! Your ability to squeeze so much flavor from such a low total of concentrates is really inspiring! Tried it at day 5 and found the Pineapple a bit too forward, but, after letting it sit another week or so, it found it's place. Really good stuff!

👍🏼 First, Thank you FolkArt for sharing your work! This mix has kept me entertained and happy for a long while. I was just mixing one of my personal variations of this so I thought I would check if I ever reviewed your recipe, and here I am. Although everyone rates recipes differently, here you go...💥 bam - I give it 5 ⭐️s because it's a solid tasty combination with nice mouthfeel and it is easily customizable to one's preferences. (Never tried the original POA.) Now, I wonder what WF Gooey Marshmallow as a sub for some or all of the FA Marshmallow would bring to the mix... I❤️DIY.

pretty good recipe. I add a touch more pineapple to make it more to my liking, but this is solid.
