Ok here we go. This one is a nice refreshing summer drink vape.
Lemonade Base - VT Lemonade Clear is an interesting lemonade with a bit of Fiz, FLV lemonade help to enhance the longevity of the lemonade. SC Lemon gives you some of that authentic lemon while VT Sour Lemon gives you that nice lemon zest. This is a really solid base for the lemonade.
FA Pear is used really for sweetness to go along with the FLV Wild Melon/JF Honeydew combo to give us a honeydew forward melon mix.
Finally the FLV Boysenberry helps to syrup up the fruits and add a tough of berry to the mix. Enjoy!
Ok this one is bit complex so lets start with the easy part, cooling on the front(ws-23) and back(polar blast) end since this is frozen drink. Next up is the vanilla ice cream and LB VIC + VS is a pretty clear cut choice. You can't have a mudslide without a little milk which is where OOO Creamy Underpants comes into play and the flavora Milk & Honey adds a little bit of malt. The VT Devon cream is straight chocolate milk which there is just a touch of here to help to emulate the chocolate syrup without going overboard, while adding to the milkshakey base. The mudslide is a Kahlua based booze drink so the Caramel Coffee with Sweet Milk and VT Bourbon come together to be the star. The FW Hazelnut is really playing the role of emulsifier here with all these different creams.
This started with a picture and recipe provided by my friend Modivin in the DIY eJuice discord from BBC food recipes. We decided to make sweet rice the star as this is a rice pudding. The VT Yoghurt drink makes adds a citrus cream to the rice and the bavarian cream gives it some thickness and mouthfeel. Next up was the accents. Needed a hint of vanillar, pistachio and cinnamon so I used those recipes a bit low for what they offer.
I started with the Arnie Palmer. SC Black Tea is a pretty good sweet black tea. Adding that to LA Lemonade + FLV Lemonade(helps the lemonade longevity) and I wanted to try the VT Sour Lemon. This is a really sweet, tart and zesty Lemon which does a wonderful job of adding to the lemonade base. VT Mango juice is like that mango nectar that you get in a can and FLV Mango is that pure ripe mango. This is a pretty fun refreshing vape, add WS-23 or Sweetener to taste.
This is an idea that I had to make something that I used to really like, crown/Makers Mark and gingerale. Then I got to thinking about a Shirley temple so I wanted to get a cherry flavor in there without the medicine. Really not a ton going on here. The FLV Ginger is a pretty strong ginger and paired with citrus soda/fizzy sherb lemon/lime soda base gets me a pretty solid gingerale taste.
Ok so this was my first foray into the realm of Custard. I decided I wanted to make a Clafoutis, which is basically a dessert with cherries and custard with a bit of a crust to it.
Everyone knows cherries are a bit of a bear, so I didn't want to bite that off with my first custard. I decided to go with a Pluot Clafoutis. A pluot is a plum/apricot hybrid. VT Blood Plum/FA Apricot make the pluot and the liquid amber helps to add that "cooked" vibe. The shisha vanilla is what it is, a vanilla accent, the FA cookie makes a light crust. I used a OOO Powdered Sugar to add a sprinkling of powdered sugar. That last part is the custard which is the main part of this profile. I started with INW Custard, but I felt it was too weak. Not creamy enough and not enough body. I asked @alfredpudding for help and as usual, he was game. He suggested I add 3% CAP NY CC, which @ediblemalfunction uses in his Custard. This was the missing piece, I'm really enjoying this right now.
Ugh so annoying, lost my description. Here we go again. The profile I was going for was a dark berry forward yogurt smoothie with a hint of lemon. The VT Yoghurt drink takes care of the yogurt with the hint of lemon, but it's not thick enough on its own for a smoothie and FW yogurt provides that thickness without making it overly creamy. I wanted to make sure the Forrest Fruit didn't get overpowered by the yogurtness of this mix so I boosted all the dark berries. The FA black currant adds that syrupy sweetness and the FA Bilberry gives it an additional fresh blueberry vibe. TFA Blackberry is notoriously strong and I didn't want it to overpower the mix, but it just belonged in the dark berry mix. This started as a collab on the DIY_eJuice Discord with @isuamadog, but we veered in different directions as he wanted to bring the yogurt to the front. As always fun times on the discord and delicious recipes.
This is a very simple lemonade base. To me its fantastic and here's my theory. FA Lemon Sicily notoriously fades quickly and combine with LA Lemonade it gives you that great sweet lemonade up front. The problem here is that you can't really mix much of it, this is where the FLV Lemonade comes in to play. It takes 3-5 days to really open up, its fine as a SnV but starts to shine after a few days. You get that really tart and sweet lemonade. As the Sicily starts to fade the FLV Lemonade starts to get brighter and sweeter, thus extending the life of your lemonade base. Add your fruits and ws-23 as you like.
