A delicious & thick tropical papaya cocktail.
A redux of my Pango recipe offering a much improved papaya forward fruit blend where papaya is the hero in place of mango.
As a seasoned vaper, I have moved on form mainstream fruits and, like many others, am sooooo over of the monotony of strawberry, apple and blueberry based fruit vapes. Luckily, mother nature has provided us with a veritable smorgasbord of fruity wonders, including the must underrated Papaya.
I love, love, love the inherent bitterness & body of TPA Papaya which lays the substructure here. It perfectly balances the sweetness of the other fruits, whilst boosting the mouthfeel to create a thick, full vaping experience.
FE Mango perfectly encapsulates the very best a fresh, ripe & luscious mango. Used at 1%, it masterfully imparts the essence of mango & allows the mango to shine.
A splash of CAP Cantaloupe & a smidgen of Peach juicy keep things nice and moist & deepens the melange of fresh, ripe fruit without distraction.
FA Coconut enhances the creaminess & imparts a delicate, natural coconut edge. It is barely noticeable (which was the intention) and allows coconut haters the opportunity to experiment with this stunning multi-use beauty.
Give this baby 2 days or so to settle.
A simple and refreshing grapefruit cocktail.
I set out to recreate the classic Blushing Lady cocktail following a recent overindulgence of same...! As per most classic cocktails, the flavor combinations rely on quality ingredients to do the heavy lifting & generously doused with some boozy goodness...
INW Grapefruit is basically grapefruit in a bottle, period. This supreme beast perfectly represent a fresh ruby grapefruit in all its glory= bright, tart & juicy.
FA Pomegranate brings a sweet & syrupy dark pomegranate layer and cuts the tartness of the grapefruit ever so slightly.
FE Lemon ties deepens the tartness and acts as the lemon (not lime) wedge traditionally served with the OG cocktail.
This baby is good to go off the shake and, as always, deepens beautifully after 3 days.
A simple & delicious pomegranate and berry coco cream.
This recipe pays homage to one of my favorite ADV’s in my neck of the woods, sold as an one shot. This is my interpretation of a simple fruity mix with a touch of ice.
FA Pomegranate and INW Raspberry are the stars here and provide an authentic, earthy & deep red fruit base. These 2 were destined to be wed and compliments one another to birth this magnificent hatchling.
FA Coconut provides an intriguing, intricate, creaminess whilst imparting a delicate natural coconut edge. I have tried various other coconut choices but this one just works here so much better.
FA cream fresh blends our fruit masterfully and, off course, adds that delicious creaminess which has made this baby a staple in every self respecting DIY’ers arsenal.
WS23 is used to add an icy edge and keeps this ensemble from being linear. The OG uses menthol but I realize that most mixers prefer WS23, hence the inclusion.
This baby is good to go after 2 or 3 days!
A rich, sticky & creamy caramel tobacco.
Further exploration of Holy Holy Grail and HS Caramel toffee led me to this scrumptious and richly rewarding creamy caramel RY4 delight. Simply put, pure bliss...
Not much has to be said for the highly acclaimed Holy Holy Grail. It is, by far, the quintessential RY4. Period. Light on the tobacco, heavy on the vanilla infused caramel goodness, this is the bedrock of this recipe. Use V2 at 8% for best results.
HS Caramel Toffee is my go-to caramel and further deepens the caramel layer by providing a rich and creamy true caramel flavor.
LB Vanilla Ice Cream is a superb VIC and further compliments the vanillas & introduces a wonderful, rich and smooth, creamy element. Initial adaptations features custard which was good, but this bad boy/girl is just soooo much better!
HS Italian cream is pure indulgence and simply adds luxurious, double cream, oral satisfaction.
Give this baby at least 7 days to stew and be prepared for oral bliss...
A thick & rich delectable cheesecake marbled with sticky caramel.
This is a simple 3,2,1 cheesecake celebrating the magnificence of power ingredients.
INW Yes, we cheesecake has been my go-to since it’s release and it continues to surprise me for it pure simplicity. This , European style cheesecake, perfectly encapsulates all that is cheesecake with ease. The rich, creamy & velvety smooth filling sits lovingly atop an unassuming base, given a delicate boost in the form of INW Coconut cookies, which is beyond superb in itself. A light & crisp coconut cookie with a touch of vanilla is the perfect beau for our paladin.
HS caramel toffee adds a deep, sticky and slightly sweet layer to enhance the threesome without distracting from the main profile.
Give this baby 3 to 5 days to settle and enjoy!
A deliciously creamy vanilla rice milk.
I picked up OOO Rice milk on sale recently and, as all sales items usually end up, had zero hopes of it being any good. I went with my gut and mixed some complimentary pairings with it and OMG, did this turn to be a sublime, dare I say, ADV for my fickle palate.
OOO Rice milk is described as sweet and creamy rice milk flavor and that is exactly what it is. An exceedingly creamy base with a fabulous mouth feel laced with a touch of light, cooked rice. The creaminess here is astounding = it is on par with the best creams out there and will be a perfect all rounder where cream is the base layer.
I added a splash of cinnamon sugar and opted for CAP Cinnamon sugar as I wanted a delicate sweet cinnamon note and stayed clear of the other contenders. At 1% It lingers beautifully in the background and just adds a sprinkling of cinnamon. Feel free to up it a tad if you want more of a cinnamon forward note.
FA Bourbon is the perfect vanilla here and adds a wonderful, bold, deep, rich & clean vanilla flavour to round this trio off to perfection.
After 3 days this baby is ready to please and after 5, it will please you even more!
A delicious smokey blend of caramel, vanilla and tobacco.
I set out to explore different levels and uses of my Holy Holy Grail, widely revered as THE king of caramel, vanilla and tobacco triads.
Admittedly feint in the tobacco department, this recipe attempts to add some simple complexity to our main protagonist whilst celebrating its inherent sublimeness...
SM Latakia fire cured is a superb ‘dark’ tobacco and is much more refined than other players in this tobacco category like Black Fire and the likes. It can be described as an ashy burning campfire log - intense and pure... Here it adds a delicious & refined sweet, smokey & ashy element and lifts the RY4 base to unexplored heights
Oakwood adds a slight sweet woody tone to bolster the feint tobacco in the Holy Holy Grail and adds a bit of complexity and intrigue.
Use Holy Holy Grail V2 at 8%.
For a touch of additional sweetness, add 1% HS Caramel Toffee...
Give this 7 days to settle, 10 days best.
A rich & thick custard generously spooned over oven fresh cake to Trump all others...
My go-to INW Custard combo is simply the best custard base known to man: creamy, thick, rich and delectably smooth. This trumps all custard also-rans and is packed full of flavor, and then some.
OOO Corn Bread is fast becoming my go-to cake base & provides a perfectly sweet & dense cake with very little corn notes after a steep. Most recipes containing Corn bread calls for the addition of corn, popcorn, etc to boost the corn note but it is not necessary here as I did not see out to create a traditional corn per se.
The caramel butter takes this to the next level by adding an authentic, creamy caramel boost to the custard whilst thrusting its inherent butteriness.
Give this baby at least 5 days to settle and enjoy!
A light & smooth tobacco kissed with vanilla & caramel.
This is a deceptively simple analogue killer, designed to provide a tobacco sub to new converts & veterans alike.
SM A+ Blend is a superbly blended, medium bodied blend of familiar tobaccos which most ex smokers will be able to relate to. This is the perfect transitional tobacco vape = "light, smooth, slightly sweet & nutty" and sure to satisfy any bacco lover. The first drag reminds one of the full aromas which fills the nostrils upon opening a new pack of analogues = fresh, sweet and slightly nutty tobacco...
HS Caramel toffee adds a splendid sweet and creamy caramel without distraction & enhances the innate natural sweetness of the tobacco blend.
A touch of Shisha Vanilla completes our masterpiece by masterfully doing what it does best = provide the best possible vanilla flavor...
Give this baby 7 days to reach its potential and enjoy!
A stunning creamy vanilla coffee kissed with a hint of caramel and fresh apple slices.
This is a redux of Morning Glory, which is still one of my favorite recipes to date: https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/84671
The addition of the apple was an unintended ‘mistake’ when I accidentally added the apple combo to a pre-steeped bottle of Morning Glory instead of Creme Brulee and the result was surprisingly good! I decided to revisit the OG recipe and publish this version with one or two minor tweaks.
The hunt for a smooth, slightly sweet, caramel coffee has been, as any DIY’er will know, one of the most difficult feats to pull off. Enter Cafe Napoleon... this baby has none of the skunky coffee off notes and delivers, as per the DFS a ‘sweet and satisfying caramel infused coffee” - and they weren’t twisting the truth... This is not an in-your-face shot of espresso but rather a homage to coffee, highlighting its delicate flavours. The coffee note is moderately boosted with a touch of VT Arabica coffee, to provide a fuller coffee note, absent in the OG recipe.
The Cafe Napoleon lays the foundation here and is deservedly given a loving embrace by Holy Holy Grail which adds a delectable, but subtle, RY4 note which instantly propelles it from great to freakin fantastic!
Vanilla, in my opinion, is essential for a morning pick-me-up and gives this baby the legendary Holy Vanilla treatment...yuminess!
The biscuit adds a touch of texture without detracting from the protagonist and sits very well here at 1%.
The custard enrobes the ensemble of flavours and ads a velvety smoothness and mouth feel to thrust this baby into atmospheric proportions!
FA Fuji is the undisputed king of apples and here, it does all the heavy lifting on the apple front. Sweet, crispy and uber realistic, FA Fuji précis a Fuji apple uncannily. The INW apple brings a sweet apple juice type vibe to the party and boosts the Fuji’s sweetness to create a stunning apple combo.
A week will be enough for all the flavours to rise to the occasion but 2 will give you a morning glory, and then some...
