Inspiration for this recipe struck after working on a pumpkin pie ice cream. Looking into it tropical eggnog, it is actually a thing!!! In Puerto Rico it's called Coquito After looking at a few recipes decided this was something I needed it my life. and trust me when I say you need it yours. Smooth creamy eggnog with a coconut kick, what's not to love?
FLV eggnog- this is hands-down the best eggnog flavoring I have tasted to date. smooth and creamy custard, with nutmeg and cinnamon. An obvious choice for a solid base to this recipe.
FA custard - wanted to add an extra layer of custard without the spices. I tried several different variations including, CAP vanilla custard, and FLV custard, flavourart custard was my favorite. CAP vanilla custard ended up muting all of the spice notes, but was still very tasty. FLV custard was also very tasty but didn't add any complexity into the recipe.
Coconuts - all three of these flavorings have their strengths and weaknesses. The combination of these three, at these percentages, highlights all of their strengths. To be honest you could probably get away with just using one (my favorite was sweet coconut at 3%.) That said this combination is far more complex, and was definitely my favorite.
FA Jamaican special- frankly how can you have eggnog without rum? And when looking at rum flavorings if a Jamaican special, also known as Jamaican rum is definitely at the top shelf. This concentrate has a great rum flavor, that pairs up perfectly with the eggnog. I was hoping it would bring a little warmth to the recipe unfortunately, that is not the case you could always try a little TFA Kentucky bourbon, it does bring a level of warm but can't get past the off notes.
FA marshmallow - does a few things here, for us helps soften the harsh notes, the nutmeg can have as a shake and vape, along with adding a fluffy texture, and adds an extra level of sweetness.
When I was blueprinting this recipe before doing any research on the topic I had banana in the mix. After researching and tasting a reference. Decided to keep this traditional, oddly enough the combination of eggnog and coconut does give me a banana flavor, and TFA Banana Foster would fit in here very very well.
Criticism and feedback, are much appreciated. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy.
First I'd like to start off by saying, I know this looks like a lot of flavors for a recipe, and the percentages seem high.Let me explain, I haven't found a 🎃 flavoring, that I have liked to date, and so half of this recipe is my 🎃 Stone.
Fall is approaching fast, and if you want a delicious 🎃 vape, I suggest you start aging you e- liquid now.This is a concept recipe, I have never actually had a 🎃, pecan, and pralines ice cream. That said it sounds good to me, and after developing this recipe, I will have to break out the ice cream machine and give it a go.
Let's face it, the 🎃 flavorings on the market all fall short, in the one area that counts, the 🎃!!! Add to that that the spices are completely out of balance, with the allspice kicking you right in the nuts. I wanted to build the 🎃 from the ground up.
TFA yams- is a good base to build off of for a pumpkin. This flavoring has a nice sweet, starchy, 🎃 like taste. TFA yam is a little weak, and does lack some characteristics of a cooked squash.
FA caramel- First thing first wanted to give it a roasted flavor, after trying Coke cans grilled pineapple, was certain that FA caramel would do the trick. In addition it help sweeten the profile, and is a great accent, for butter pecan, and pralines as well.
FLV eggnog - next we needed to add those traditional pumpkin spices. Eggnog gives us vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, without the ever offensive allspice, found in all 🎃 spice flavorings. The custard aspect of this flavoring, also helps give the pumpkin a smooth, creamy, and buttery finish.
TFA honeysuckle - IMHO 🎃 tends to have a smooth, creamy, sweet, and somewhat floral flavor, this is where this is where honeysuckle comes into play. Known to pretty much go with everything honeysuckle, helps give the recipe light floral note.
HS French vanilla ice cream - Quickly becoming a staple flavor in the community, and for good reason. It is a great ice cream flavor, that doesn't need any help. And at higher percentages starts to take on a malty, somewhat cheesy note, reminiscent of mascarpone.I really push the percentage on this flavoring since we are dealing with some really rich, complex, and strong concentrates. The vanilla and custard from eggnog pair beautifully in this recipe, and I am very happy with the results.
FW butter pecan - There's a reason flavor West butter pecan is a staple flavoring, it is delicious!!! In this recipe, on top of adding some complexity, the nutty note pairs perfectly with all the creams, and that dark squash flavor we're going for. Butter pecan makes everything deeper, and richer. Although butter pecan is a great flavor, it tends to bully everything around, I don't want it to take over the recipe, and at 1.5% it is well balanced and sits in the background right where I want it.
FLV pralines - is something of a Hidden Gem. I have yet to see it used in a recipe here on all the flavors. That might be in park but this is such a conundrum of a flavor, I can't decide whether it taste like pecans, hazelnuts, almonds, or all of the above. this flavor is the perfect accent to boost butter pecan, and adds a great level of complexity. In the words of Coke can, “ fuck you it's delicious, just try it assholes and thank me later.”
HS French vanilla ice cream- there is some debate about this, but personally cannot discern a difference between HS ice cream, and HS French vanilla bean ice cream, and so this is a no-brainer swap for the exact same percentage.
Eggnog- LA eggnog and RF eggnog are the other two flavorings in my arsenal. They both worked, but lacked some of the body, that FLV brought to the table. That said what we're looking for from the eggnog is combination of nutmeg and cinnamon and my thoughts are most eggnog should fit into the profile just fine.
Caramel - I tried a few variations here and had success with butterscotch Ripple, and plane butterscotch. Dulce de leche would also be a suitable replacement, to be honest this really just came down to preference I have been falling in love with FA caramel all over again.
Yam - probably the most unique flavor in the recipe, I had to order mine from Wizard labs and I'm not sure where else you can get it, except potentially buying direct from TFA. The only other flavor company that I'm aware of selling a yam or sweet potato flavoring is OOO, and I currently own none of their offerings. I would love to get some feedback from somebody who does.
FW & CAP 🎃 spice, would make suitable replacements for the pumpkin Stone, keep in mind you will be getting a healthy dose of allspice with both of these flavors.
Although good as a shake and vape, butter pecan, and the creams really stand out at the 3-weeks. And just keep getting better with time.
Thanks for reading hope you give it a shot. Feedback and criticism Are welcome and appreciated.
So what is rainbow sherbet? Traditionally I believe Sherbet, is made with orange, pineapple, lemon, lime, and raspberry Several reasons I didn't go with pineapple or lime. Pineapple and lime, are both highly acidic, and with the already acidic Orange in this recipe, it would have been a real pain in the ass to balance out.
I also believe the sweetness of mango fits the profile much better. I'm fully aware that mango has been Beat to Death, lately but summer is coming to an end, and soon enough we'll be basking in the glory of custards, creams, and bakeries once again, but a fruity ice cream this can be Vaped year round.
FLV mango + LB blue raspberry
FLV mango- is not something I have played around with too much, it has had a lot of great reviews, and has made an appearance in some of the best recipes of the year to date. It seems the downside is it's a little watery, and can take away from the texture of many recipes. I personally did not notice any watering down of this cream base.
Lb blue raspberry - I picked this flavoring for several reasons, for one it does in part a blue flavor, or what my brain perceives as blue because I've eaten way too many Otter Pops in my youth.. On top of on top of that it's a great raspberry flavoring, and the others in my Arsenal just did fit.
TFA sweet raspberry is my go-to but I believe it contains ethyl maltol, which was muting other flavors, and balancing it was becoming problematic.
INW raspberry fit better but is a temperamental concentrate, and tends to overpower everything. I think it could be a suitable replacement if you do not have liquid barns blue raspberry. But 2% is definitely too high I liked it best at .5%.
And that's the list of raspberries I currently own. Would love to hear love any substitutions that work.
For the rest of the flavor notes check out the original recipe. I do have to admit to cheating a little on the Steep time, I had a fully steeped batch of my orange vanilla sherbet, and tossed these flavors on top of that. Hopefully they don't fade too much wall aging. Thank you for reading and please if you mix this up feedback and criticism are very appreciated.
TFA apricot + FW Orange dream Bar
Flavor West dream bar on its own has a great orange flavor. This concentrate separates just a little bit, which leads me to believe, they're using their blood orange in this concentrate. One of the best orange flavoring on the market, but It does have its problems it's extremely zesty, and not very juicy.
I was discussing this problem with shindo on Discord, and I suggested he added apricot, to make more of an orange juice flavor. It just so happened at that time I was working on this recipe and thought what the hell let's give it a shot. Didn't really work as a S & V, tasted like a dreamsicle that had been rolled in Tang.
So I set it aside gave it some time and came back to it after 3 weeks. What a difference time can make the apricot settled down and Blended in with the orange perfectly giving it a juicer flavor. Which is perfect for this profile.
FW Orange dream bar+ LA cream cheese icing + CAP vanilla bean ice cream + FLV marshmallow
Flavor West Orange dream bar, has a fantastic vanilla ice cream base to it. Just lacking a little in texture. To fluff this up FLV marshmallow works wonders. This was one of the tweaks I added to the recipe after a steep and a little research big shout-out to fear and bloody Mingo sherbert.
One of the great things about this hobby is you don't have to know everything, and there are a ton talented mixers, whose experience and flavor notes can be a fantastic resource for recipe development.
I decided to add CAP vanilla bean ice cream to the mix, it has a much stronger vanilla flavor, and a completely different ice cream flavor, if I had to describe it in three words I would say battery and smooth.
LA cream cheese icing sweetums up the profile and adds a smooth, and slightly malty cream cheese accent.
Cap super sweet
Okay I'll admit it I was one of those people that avoided sweeteners like the plague. Once I got over my aversion to sweetener, and realized when used in small percentages, they can really help brighten a recipe. And that's exactly what it does here brightens up the orange and vanilla making for a very enjoyable vape.
I'm going to assume most of you don't have flavor West Orange dream bar in Your Arsenal. If that's the case cap orange creamsicle should do the trick. I have both and they are very similar flavorings.
On the chance you don't have either I am 98% sure orange dream bar, is simply blood orange, and vanilla bean ice cream put together into one flavor. I almost rework the recipe knowing that I could recreate this concentrate out of flavorings everybody should have.
I would use flavor West vanilla bean ice cream, around 4% and flavor West blood orange, between .5% and 1%. These are completely substitutions, and would love to hear feedback from anybody who tries them.
Cap vanilla bean ice cream could be subbed out for HS French vanilla ice cream.
FLV marshmallow should be subbed out for fa marshmallow I would bring it up a quarter of a percent.
Steep time is a must for this one as an S&V it's not unvapable, but everything is very separate, and needs time to come together.
Now if you're impatient like me and three weeks is just too long, one drop MTS Vape wizard / 10 mL should speed up the process.
Again completely untested, but in my experience this additive can work wonders at blending flavors together.
This is one of those recipes that has evolved from an attempt at one thing into something else. First it was to be a dream bar recipe using flavor West dream bar as the base. After a good step realized with a few tweeks would make an excellent sherbert recipe. hope you enjoy if you mix it up thank you and please leave some feedback.
FW strawberry- this is my favorite strawberry. Was an obvious choice after tasting this be liquid. No doubt in my mind flavor West. I'm certain you could substitute the CAP sweet strawberry, JF sweet strawberry ,or 2-1 combination TFA strawberry, strawberry ripe.
CAP golden pineapple- this is a great flavor and was my first choice. Nailed it 😃😃😃.
FLV sweet coconut & FA coconut- this is where I think my remix is better than the original. I'm certain they are not using FLV, probably TFA. Adding FA coconut makes the coconut more complex, and realistic. Besides I could not resist, this is hands-down my favorite coconut!! (tends to fade a little overtime.)
CAP super sweet- if I was going for a one-to-one clone this would probably be a much higher percentage. Just a Touch does make everything a little sweeter.
Super concentrates cappuccino- simply put best coffee flavoring ever!!! I've been sitting on this recipe, subbing in and out coffee flavorings, trying to get something I could put my name on. I finally found a coffee flavoring that I like.. recently did a full right up on this flavor check it out here.
Flavor West ice cream, cap sweet cream, and cap vanilla custard- these three come together to create a fantastic milkshake base. I prefer flavor West vanilla bean ice cream, it's a little sweeter than the others but, if you don't have it I'm sure you could substitute in TFA, or CAP. Cap vanilla custard, comes together with the vanilla bean ice cream, to give you a much thicker more authentic ice cream. CAP sweet cream, this flavoring is a grate milk flavoring, and the counterpart to the ice cream giving you a milkshake, instead of an ice cream flavor. If you don't have it I'm 99.9% sure Bavarian cream will work just as well.
Cap sugar cookie- this flavoring does a great job of sweetening the profile, at 2% doesn't have a lot of cookie flavor. But who the doesn't want a little cookie in the milkshake 🤔 I have always loved the way this flavoring works with creams, just makes them more complex and tasty.
Fantastic and refreshing summer time vape.
Pretty straight Fuji and strawberry are always a great combination, and the addition of honeysuckle, make the experience juicier and sweeter .
Finishing the profile off with Rosemary and cucumber for a unique and extremely satisfying Vape experience.
If you do not have shisha Rosemary would highly recommend picking it up not the most versatile flavor but works very well floral situation and pairs well with melon and sweet fruit flavoring.
Back when I actually purchased Ejuice which hasn't happened for over a year this was one of my favorites. Little research on the liquid and it looks like it's been discontinued 😔 which means I can't buy a bottle to compare My remix to but from what I remember this is incredibly close.
Super concentrate cappuccino- hands down best coffee flavoring I have come across so far. Really excited about this one recommend picking it up going to be using it in a few upcoming recipes that are in the works. Not to be confused with real flavors super concentrate.
Whipped cream and sweet cream- these two come together for a great cream flavor, the perfect compliment for this coffee.
Butterscotch Ripple and caramel- using butterscotch because most caramels are lacking in that candy category. Adding an accent flavor of flavor art caramel helps give this combination of boost.
Super sweet and vanilla bourbon- both accents to help boost the candy profile and finish out this recipe.
hope you enjoy.
A nice smooth cream, very Dairy tasting with no egg flavor. Moderately buttery with no vanilla and just a hint of sweetness.
Rich butter with a hint of cream, and a great pecan aftertaste.
This is a much more realistic representation of the sweet and tart strawberry with just a hint of the candy flavor.
Creamy and rich super smooth ice-cream with the perfect vanilla. Not artificial Not spicy moderately eggy, heavy on the dairy, fairly sweet, and that super rich butter & cream you expect in an ice cream or custard.
A light bittersweet chocolate, with just a hint of cream or milk.
Sweet, rich with a great bittersweet chocolate flavor. Just a perfectly moist, and creamy fudge brownie.
Rich and sweet with a smooth buttery flavor. Creamy with a hint of vanilla and that fantastic Sweet Bitter cocoa butter flavor.
Sweet and tart very candy like strawberry flavor.
Nice and creamy dairy, moderately eggy, very buttery without being greasy with a smooth Rich vanilla, and in my opinion the perfect level of sweetness.
sweet and syrupy with a nice cereal flavor very light on the cinnamon
Grainy and slightly sweet great representation of cereal.
Smooth and light cream, very sweet with just a touch of egg, very light vanilla, and a hint of butter.
Smooth rich chocolate, halfway between semi-sweet milk chocolate and dark chocolate.

Smooth and rich vanilla with a heavy Dairy, very buttery, and a well-balanced sweetness that really makes the vanilla pop.
Raw coconut with out the natural sweetness or sugars found in coconut.
More chocolate coffee then a cream, light on the vanilla, and cream, no perceptible almond, there is a hint of smoky whiskey flavor used at most Irish Cream.
Cream whipped to perfection, ( just before it turns into butter ), it's a light fluffy Dairy moderately sweet with none of the eggy or vanilla properties you find another creams and custards.
Crisp and juicy with the perfect sweet-tart snap, a very realistic Fuji apple, (I swear I can taste the skin of the Apple, and the sweet perfect fruit underneath) natural sugar flavor you'd expect from an apple without tasting artificial.
Nice smooth vanilla not extremely prevalent, but still noticeable in combination with a buttery and sweet cream base.
Predominantly Ginger flavoring with hints of citrus. (lemon, lime, orange)Bitter, Sweet, and Tart all at the same time. Innowera has a flavor description up saying it includes cinnamon and anise, I'm getting the sense of anise, I don't really taste the cinnamon at all.
Cereal like blueberry with a sweet tart snap.
Chocolatey, creamy, and smooth. Chocolate is a little Tootsie Roll like and slightly chalky, which adds a little something extra to the cream.
Sweet tart lemon flavor, with a hint of that hard candy sweetness.
Smooth sweet cream with a sharp vanilla, and a lite buttery finish.
A sweet and tart blueberry, emphasis on the sweet, and I don't know how else to describe it but it tastes blue.
Tart with a light sweetness, slightly acidic, and light floral notes.
First things that stand out to me are the cinnamon and the crust, followed by a syrupy cherry flavor. The Cherry is very true to the name pie filling without tasting like cough syrup. The crust tests like graham cracker with a little butter and a touch of cinnamon.
Super sweet with an earthy floral accent. Savory and Light with just a touch of bitterness gives it completely and contrast. More of a natural syrupy sweetness like stevia or agave not sugary.
Relatable Flavors Reminds me of drinking agave nectar with a touch of rose water, or orange blossom.
Fluffy light cream, nice and buttery with a slightly overpowering sweetness.
Sweet & tart with a light Berry flavor, and a light Floral Accent.
Sweet syrupy with and lightly tart and sour note. Definitely a cantaloupe flavor (maybe a hint of honeydew in there ) very realistic even get that creamy mouth feel you get when eating a cantaloupe.
Bitter & tart with a light sweetness. (syrupy not sugary, a little like maple syrup or honey)
Slightly piney with a rich floral accent, together they are savory and definitely have umami.
Very strong grape flavor, bright and pronounced, sweet and syrupy. And I feel as though I'm getting a light background Apple flavor.
Sweet & sour plum flavoring with a light hint of smoke, giving it Contrast and just the right amount of sour to set off sweet notes. This one definitely has unami sweet savory and delicious.
