A sweet Raspberry Lemonade recipe from the apex of the e-liquid explosion.
(I would estimate recipe as ~98% accurate.)
If you've been vaping as long as I, doubtless you remember TKO from Clutch Vapors. Nothing groundbreaking going on, just a straight-forward raspberry lemonade. A killer recipe, nonetheless. They sold a ton of this stuff, and Ruby Roo gushed about it endlessly. Just using two great flavors as the cornerstone in a perfect marriage and keeping it simple.
The original was a bright, cherry-red as it used the old Lorann's Raspberry with the deep red coloring. I prefer the Colorless version, which is standard issue at Bull City. Either is fine, the aroma is the same. I do miss that red color, it was appetizing.
LA Lemonade is just a great flavor. Does what it advertises, bold and true. Hard to beat, imo. Flavorah is close, but Lorann's takes the crown.
LA Raspberry is still one of my favorite candy-raspberry flavors. Very underappreciated today, and very unique. So many mixers swore by this stuff back in the olden days of vaping-past. (It's also a big part of "Angel Sauce" by The Plume Room, an awesome sherbet recipe.) It is used well here, paired with it's sister Lemonade flavor.
I've added TFA Sweet Raspberry just to darken the berry note, it's at a low percentage so it doesn't detract, but rather adds to the original. One might even consider adding ~0.25% of FA Blackcurrant to darken it further, but then we're not true to the original which is what this is shooting for.
Sweetener to taste. 0.5% is more than enough, but the original may be closer to 1%
Hopefully this post helps someone who has a nostalgic craving, or was trying to nail down the recipe, yet missing out because of Lorann's low profile these days.
