So J2O is a non alcoholic range of fruit drinks popular at bars and clubs in the British Isles (and Chicago for some reason) for designated drivers and teetotalers. The orange one is a very rich, and very sweet blended drink and my personal favourite, after a few variations and some help from the subreddit's Discord I think I have got pretty close to the profile I want.
FW Blood Orange/FA Mandarin/SSA Nectarine - This makes up the main orange component. Blood Orange for the main fresh juice body with FA Mandarin supporting the other two and filling in the blank notes. SSA Nectarine is the star and hits the perfect top note of the orange profile I'm looking for. Tried a few other subs and combos but this one hits the right chord.
CNV Passion Fruit - Beautiful flavour; this pairs with the SSA really well and the two compliment each other. This helps a lot as the original drink has the Orange and Passion Fruit notes very much blended together.
INW Cactus/TPA Marshmallow/CAP Super Sweet - In the original drink the fruit is sweet and then has added sugar on top, hence the marshmallow and super sweet. The marshmallow also helps to bring all the fruit together and let them get to know each other. Cactus to wet things up and turn it closer to a drink profile.
Give it a go and I hope you like it!

One Inch Punch is a fruit mocktail created by Guerrilla Street Foods I saw on TV when Mr. Flavortown himself went to visit St. Louis. After I saw it, I thought "Damn, I want to go to St. Louis!" Yes, words I had never expected to have uttered out loud. Well, this recipe is the next best thing!
SSA Garden Mint - This flavour is absolute fire! Straight up fresh mint leaves with virtually no menthol or cooling. Very potent, and can easily overtake a mix. 0.5% is the perfect amount.
FLV Sweet Coconut - for the coconut water part of the profile, subtle and adds a bit of sweetness.
Molinberry Funky Pineapple - This is straight up fresh pineapple chunks, no artificial or candy notes here. 2% is the right amount for this and most recipes. Crisp and clean, just like the Man from Del Monte!
FA Blackcurrant - This is actually quite a weak flavour, I find it blends the mix together. This takes the 3% spot, any lower and it just mutes things without adding any blackcurrant notes.
Feel free to adapt, remix, add a few drops of super sweet if you want, etc. Pretty pleasant after a day or two, but could be enjoyed as a shake n' vape.
