The past few months I've been coming back to this strawberry kiwi profile over and over and never getting it quite how I wanted it. One of my only other public recipes right now- my Blue Dot Vapors Strawkiji Freeze remix- was my starting point, and this is where I've ended up. The resolution to a lengthy process of trial and error, waiting on new flavors to come in, and some more trial and error. Resolver is a bright, juicy, sweet strawberry kiwi with a nice punch of cooling.
UPDATE: If you're thinking of mixing this, you might be more interested in my newer recipe "resolver". I'm only leaving this one up because it was the starting point for what became a much better, more fleshed out recipe. Resolver is the culmination of my efforts to improve on this profile. However, if you're the curious type, go on ahead and mix both for comparison's sake. Personally I find this version gets a bit green or "vegetal"- presumably from all of that strawberry ripe mixing with those notes in fa kiwi.
Before I got into DiY, BlueDot Vapors was my go-to juice vendor. They had solid prices and some really good mixes, and most importantly, they never used added sweetener so I could actually get some lifespan out of my coils. The juice I couldn't stop coming back to was Strawkiji Freeze- a simple strawberry kiwi flavor with a bit of menthol. Now that I'm mixing for myself, I want to recapture the magic of my obsession with this juice, and possibly even improve upon it in the process.
While working on a refreshing melon blend for the summer, I ended up with not only a bold melon, but also a substantial bubblegum note- to my palate at least. This was an accident, and clearly a mistake born of experimenting with flavors I hadn't ever used before. That being said, I'm very much enjoying it as is.
Worth noting- this is using TFA Honeydew 1. I have no idea how Honeydew 2 differs, and I strongly suspect that the honeydew in this recipe is what pushes it over the edge into bubblegum territory along with the cantaloupe and fuji apple. For this reason I recommend sticking to Honeydew 1. I also personally enjoy the high percentage of WS-23 30%, but it should be great at any percentage you like.
