When I first got my box I thought itd be cool to try a recipe with only ingredients in the box so i got a 3 day head start. Im posting now before someone else makes this profile. I know these flavors pretty well and a longer steep is not going to hurt it. When looking at the list of ingredients I enjoyed alpine strawberry standalone @1.25% and its probably something I could vape alone and be happy with. My wife even hurt my feelings when I told her to try this flavor her words were "this is the best recipe youve ever made". OUCH. I dont value her opinion on flavors anyway her palate is shot to hell..proof here https://www.reddit.com/r/mixersclub/comments/5e9b0t/couples_that_vape_together_stay_together/ I get a jammy fresh strawberry preserve off this flavor. So that mixed with JF sweet strawberry as I like jf sweet straw to just stay low and compliment the jam. Apricot low as well to just barely lend some of its peach like qualities to the strawberry. CAP sugar cookie is G.O.A.T so you would imagine naturally how the cookie, butter, biscuit can leave you with a delicious shortbread. AS PROVEN BEFORE MYSELF. THAT base is looking familar. With good reason because thats a very accurate shortbread base. Bav cream and hazelnut are just there to add not cream but bridge everything together and make it a lighter more blended feeling.
A well balanced Reese's pieces McFlurry just like you get from McDonals. Brought to your home in vape form. The combination of the FW Hazelnut along with INW and TFA Double Chocolate clear create a great chocolate flavor mimicking the outer layer of a Reese's, with the peanut butter as the filling. I replaced the INW milk chocolate with FLV Milk chocolate because INW changed the ingredients and I actually think the FLV works better. FA Cream Fresh and Cap Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is the ice cream base I like to use, and I added the FA caramel to give it a little bit of darkness and richness that you get with a McDonals Reese's McFlurry. And of course a little sweetener to sweeten everything up. Hope you all enjoy!
Straight forward waffles with maple syrup. I must say that I'm loving this one. Goes great with coffee and I've been enjoying this one throughout the day. Simple, rich, delicious. Works as a S&V, but obviously gets better with time.
LB Belgian Waffle: Clearly the star of the show here. This one is absolutely legit. I knew I had to work with this one as soon as I smelled it. Great waffle flavor, certainly the best one that I've tried to date.
FLV Milk & Honey/FA Maple syrup: Work together to create the syrup note. The FA maple syrup gives the authentic maple note. Milk & Honey has a certain dark sweetness that I can only describe as molasses. It lends some body and a dark base that fits perfectly.
JF Bavarian Cream: One of my favorite creams to add a slightly dark sweetness, round out harsh edges and really pull flavors together. This one has become my Swiss Army knife.
Tfa Butter: I mean, c'mon. Who doesn't want butter on their waffle? Are you a communist?
Simple Shamrock Shake from Mcdonald's. For all those times when you want a Shamrock shake but they are only here for 2 months out of the year. Give this thing a good 3-5 days for all of the Creams to work their magic and the mint to fall into the background like a true shamrock shake. If you like your Shamrock Shake extra minty bump the Creme De Menthe to 3%. The Butter Cream is what sets this Shamrock Shake apart from other recipes of the same. It adds that buttery cream that is perfect for this profile.
This is my take on a popular profile: A candy kiwi watermelon flavor.
I posted this once but I took it off because I had yet to try it after a decent steep, the recipe holds up well and I decided to rerelease it.
FA Kiwi/LA Watermelon
Perfect combo for a candy kiwi watermelon. A 4% the kiwi can shine amongst the rest of the mix. I wanted to use as much watermelon as possible before it became the only thing you could taste, so here at 6.5% its right (6% may be right but i was adjusting from trying it at 5% and 8% and settled on 6.5). The watermelon provides a candy effect and is the backbone of this recipe. Lower % and the watermelon falls too far behind the kiwi, too high and the watermelon is all you taste.
These two flavors alone are fantastic, very tart and sweet all at once. With just a little help they become even more delicious.
FA Red Touch (Strawberry) is here to lend a little bit of its fruity sweetness to the kiwi and helps balance the overall kiwi profile. At .75% it won't show up as strawberry too much, but rather as friendly kiwi notes.
INW Cactus adds some juicy which is what we want from candy, the cactus is also an inherently sweet aroma. Any higher than .25% will change the profile too much. 1/4% of cactus is just enough juicy and doesn't need much time to steep.
FA Marshmallow I threw this in for sweetness and more body, .5% and it won't mute our fruit but just add a nice mouthfeel.
Lastly, I truly think erythritol is an effective sweetener in many fruit mixes that I have tried. It really brings out an inherent sweetness. Here, with all the sweets used, it gives a 'sugar lips' effect. I have noticed this effect on some other mixes I am working on. I have a cantaloupe mix I am working on, and the mix without erythritol is noticeably less sweet but the flavor on both is more or less the same. I would not say it is necessary here but I highly recommend it. I mix this specific juice for a couple of people and I am happy to share it here with you.
Erythritol works better than EM here because it sweetens without changing everything else that is going on in the mix. If you don't have erythritol, try it with no sweetener. If i were going to use EM rather than erythritol, I would start at .25% or maybe TPA sweetener at .5%
Definitely tasty as a shake and vape, but after about a day the cactus settles down and blends into the rest of the aromas.
