This was an accidental mistake, I've never had a juice that tasted truly 'sour' i guess the sour taste doesn't translate well in a vape.
Whilst waiting for my tobaccos to steep, i needed something that would be good to vape off the shake.
Actually i never really vape fruit juices, nothing against them i just sorta get bored of them pretty quick.
Also i never really share recipes due to not being a great mixer :)
However i think this one warrants a share, due to the sour component of it. This is a sour, grapefruit and orange vape, the inhale is a solid grapefruit, then on the exhale you get the sour tangy orange. The orange is there, but its chilling in the background with the sour tangy note at the front.
Truth be told, as mentioned above little development went into this and calling it a fluke would be fair. However the flavours chosen were all obviously chosen for a reason, even if the sour outcome was unanticipated.
FA Sicilian is the foundation here, it’s a forgiving flavour that’s hard to fuck up when used. As far as fruits go its complex enough on its own, therefore I aimed to highlight some of the tangy notes by using the other flavours whilst keeping FA Sicilian at the dead center of it all.
CAP sweet tangerine is a zesty, wet sweet orange to the point of coming across as slightly artificial, this was used for two reasons, firstly it’s wet and at a low percentage we just take the tangy / zangy taste to add some zest to FA Sicilian whilst avoiding plastic sorta orange flavour from it.
FW blood orange isn’t zangy or tangy..far less artificial than CAP sweet tangerine, this is where we will take our orange from. It’s used pretty low here for one simple reason - I’m not a good enough mixer to avoid muddling, so it’s used sparingly here just to take the orange and avoid pushing it too far so that it steps on FA Sicilian’s toes.
CAP juicy lemon...to me at least CAP sweet tangerine a lemon flavored cousin, artificial, zesty, tangy...and it’s used in the same way, I don’t want any lemon from it but I want the tangy zest it has, just a drop gives us that and avoids introducing the lemon.
INW cactus...it’s cactus init, I anticipated without it, the juice would come across as a hard boiled candy, a drop of this avoids that issue, and keeps it wet.
