SOUR APPLE HARD CANDY LEMONADE
A Simplified and better version Of my Camp Tigerclaw on Steroidz (Which is a apple slushy lemonade) derived from Camp tigerclaw by @concreteriver
Dark Chocolate Cake, coffee and malt nuances topped with a cream cheese icing.
Nothing fancy to add about this mix, everything does what is supposed to but to add a few notes:
VTA Coffee Liqueur adds a nice syrupy chocolaty/coffee.
Wf Fluffy white Cake adds vanilla and the cake body.
LA Cream Cheese Icing adds the creaminess to the mix, the frosting and some sweetness.
TPA Malted Milk adds malty notes And some grainy feeling.( helps the body of the cake)
FLV Chocolate Deutsch is our main dark cakey chocolate note.
Just a classic! Lovely vanilla cream with a dusting of cinnamon, light cheesey richness and some fried crusty notes.
One of my favourite commercial juices.
FA Vienna cream: with no doubt is the main note that makes everything so good! 3% is perfect.
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl is clearly the bakery cinnamon note you get in the entire vape.
CAP New York Cheesecake adds the cheesy note and to me its clearly this flavour that is used in the original for the richness it adds and the sourness it has.
Also is great in combination with CAP Vanilla Custard.
This 3 above gave me the clue to keep adding accent notes and some more flavourings to get as close as i think i got.
CAP Vanilla Custard: is the best thickener for this type of profiles and i get it pretty clearly in the original so it adds thickness, heavyness and some of capella’s vanilla to make everything even better.
CAP Sugar Cookie: An obviuos choice to add texture and bakery sweetness; here serves the role of making the illusion of a crusty cannoli shell in conjunction with Funnel cake and CDS.
Everything is so good about this flavouring as a tool... even if it wasn’t in the original i would have used it.
CAP Funnel Cake: A pretty bad flavour in general but at a low percentage adds some of the notes i smell and taste in the original, some sugary notes, greasy fried and bakery accents.
In general i mixed this by smell, and it helped me a lot to tackle the exact flavourings.
Shout out to Bryan Riley Jones From the Diy Mixers Club Facebook Group for getting so close to the original.
I’ve been quite a while trying to tackle this one and the comments from John Nathan helped me a lot to get close at least at 95% of the original.
(Imho and for me is enough.)
Its a nice SNV if you can handle Vienna Cream nail polish remover off note, ( to me is not as strong as in other mixes) but if you let it steep it for 4-7 days it gets away.
Before 10 days feels thin but when its fully steeped you get the exact same taste the original has or at least 95%
This is a true cigar experience, with its dark and ashy smoke, and a dry brown leaf taste, not your commercial vanilla Cigar E-juice, but its sweet (without sweetener) and savoury.
Fa Black Fire + INW Dirty neutral base Give the perfect black ashy smoke, they are used high as they lose a bit of strength as it steeps.
FLV Connecticut Shade+ Flavorah Cured make our Cigar wrapper, body and filling with brown leafy notes and a light smoke ring.
FA Oak Wood adds woody notes and some dry mouthfeel and aftertaste finished by INW TA Cuban Cigar Which adds more smoky dryness and some actual cigar flavour.
VTA Cigar Leaf Serves as the base and background notes, wrapping everything together, adding light caramel sweetness and subtle cigar leafy notes.
The more you let it steep the smoother it gets.
It needs around 7 days to smooth out and let dnb and Black fire to settle down.
60/40 is the highest ratio of VG i recomend or it feels strange, 50/50 is best.
Lemon lime slush with a sharp grapefruit, sweet and icy and straightforward.
This is the only recipe my girlfriend asks me to make for her again and again.
FLV Lime has that slushy type lime flavour but has a nasty chemical flavour also so i had to cover it with other flavours like pink guava, tahity lime and 2% ws-23.
FW Kiwi adds a little something extra to all the citrusy flavours, it tames them down maintaining the tropical vibe.
Ws-23 and super sweet balance each other so its not a blast of ice covering everything.
Vanilla milk and caramel with a hint of actual Kentucky flue cured tobacco leaf. This award-winning flavor can be best described as the King of Tobacco. A caramel vape-uccino with subtle tobacco on the exhale.
Since DIYFS Holy Holy Grail and Holy Vanilla were discontiued i have been trying to use the V2’s to make it work in my original Django Tribute effortlessly, so i made a different version that has the same soul but its a bit less accurate to the original e-juice.
Holy Holy Grail V2: is thicker, feels more vanilla-like, smoother and milky than its predecessor so adding a bit more Ry4 double caramel and Vanilla Custard makes it heavier and more caramelized.
VTA Salted Caramel: is one of my go to caramels to get that creamy caramel feeling so i prefered to use it while it makes the mix less accurate.
•Stixx Mixx Kentucky Virginian:
This is not in the original mix but is the closest i could find and it resembles quite well the kentucky tobacco used in Django with dark woody notes.
0.5% is pretty low for a NET concentrate but OG Django wasn't really a full tobacco vape and it will be very present in the vape, also it works better at 0.5% with Holy Grail V2.
Mix & Steep:
The original Django was a 60VG/40PG but this mix will also do well in 70VG/30PG.
I Suggest at least a week of steep but its better after 10-15 days.
Best results after 20-30 days.
Marshmallow cream filled Doughnut coverd with Sugary Frosted Flakes.
Not much to explain but some good combos like Wf Glazed Donut with TPA Vanilla Custard which i like a lot and it makes it heavy, rich and buttery.
Used with Cereal 27, more than giving the cereal flake note (which it adds it anyway) it helps with the donut part quite well.
TPA Marshmallow + TPA Vanilla custard another great combo and mixed with VTA Sweet Cream makes a fluffy, dense rich and sweet cream, the type of artificial cream you get in store bought bakery.
Marshmallow Vanilla helps adding more marshmallow flavour as TPA Marshmallow does not give much marshmallow flavour per se.
I like to think this recipe tastes like a store bought donut so 0.75% super sweet makes it reaaally sweet... to me its OK as its what i intended but 0.5% is enough as its already pretty sweet.
Purple syrupy Grape juice combined with sweet berries and an icy finish!
Every time halloween is near i crave for a bit or purple drinks so i revisen my own recipe and tweeked it a bit as it was a quite old one. ( Flavours and Flavour Notes are the same, just changed the percentages to make it better)
TPA Grape juice and FW Grape Soda make the syrupy grape juice with their candy and super sweet profile.
FLV Berry blend contributes making the syrupy juice thicker and richer with notes of blackberry and raspberry, filling the body and background of the vape.
FlV Boysenberry adds a touch dark berry syrupy notes.
Ws-23: adjust to your own preference i suggest 0.5-1% so it doesn’t obliterate the top notes.
Americana is a classic New york Cheesecake with a delicious strawberry topping and a buttery graham cookie base.
Wf Strawberry Cheesecake is super good, has a great cheesy note, a great graham base and a good strawberry.
The only issue is that the strawberry just appears in the finish, so here comes VTA Strawberry Jam that gives the top sweet strawberry note.
CAP New York Cheescake adds richness to the cheesecake part while Fw Graham Cracker and VTA Butter Base help with the buttery graham base.
I always wanted to try Yogi Original Granola but never had a chance so i decided to mix one my way.
CAP Cereal 27 Is the base for the toasted granola, its AP, toasted cereal and sweet, at 5 % its the perfect base.
TPA Rice Crunchies adds more AP to the mix and a darker cereal type flavour to make it a bit more fuller and interesting.
WF Oats & Cream Cookie gives a tiny bit of a earthy oat flavour at the end and helps adding a bit of creaminess.
FA Nut Mix is the secret weapon it has a great generic, earthy and creamy nut flavour that tricks tour mind making this flavours above mix and taste like toasted granola bar with some nuts in it.
Fa Honey is top heavy and very strong, with 0.5 % you get a lot of honey flavour just how its suposed.. a lot.
Fa Maple darkens the honey and adds syrupy taste and sweetness, while the dry notes it has get blended with the grainy part of the mix.
CAP Super sweet Is essential as honey is basicly sugar so 0.75% + honey+ maple syrup you get that high amount of sweetness.
