From @Queuetue : I find boston rounds to be the very best bottles for mixing and temporary storage. I use them for my VG and PG as well as on the scale while I'm making a mix. With a top that's easy to fill, easy to cap and with minimal access to air, I keep a bunch on hand for unflavored base, or whatever project I may be up to for handy, quick access.
The tip is small enough to use with most top-fill RTAs or RDAs as well.
This was initially going to be my entry for the first Awesome Box contest, and then I forgot to finish working on it. Typical.
Breakfast of Champions is the product of a few weeks of fucking about with percentages, adding and subtracting flavours, and pulling my goddamn hair out trying to get the profile down the way I wanted it. Hence me not posting it until now. And the funny thing is, this recipe just needed a steep to really get where it needed to be. So the profile here is supposed to be an ADV friendly waffle that is drizzled in some strawberry syrup with fresh sliced strawberries on top. The intention of "ADV friendly" is just that it's balanced and not something that's going to assault your tastebuds and pummel them into olfactory oblivion. I think the steep time makes this a reality. Upon a shake and vape, everything is much more separated, the waffle flavour is more maple-y and in your face, the strawberries are a little harsh and overpowering, but it IS still tasty straight away.
But after a week, it starts to blend together nicely. After two weeks, the strawberries mellow out and hit you on the back end, while the waffle flavours and cream notes stay up front. So two weeks is when Breakfast of Champions hits the stride, and I'd recommend mixing this one up and throwing it in the steep drawer til then.
Well since everyone's doing it, I figured I would as well. A variation to ID10-T's famous detachable artificial reproductive organ, but with a bit of them ~ t r o p i c a l v i b e z ~
We know the base works, thanks to the original recipe. While I don't necessarily like FA Strawberry, I wanted to stay with the normal base for this recipe, since it does seem to work best to impart that sort of subtle strawberry note that is not too candied or sweet. I think, if needed, a substitute of TPA Straw Ripe at 5% would work. It WON'T be the same, but it is one of the other strawberries out there that isn't too sweet or offensive. I also felt as though the watermelon notes could be improved a bit from the original, and while FA Watermelon is a great flavour, I like how the addition of FLV Watermelon helps add some of that lingering mouthfeel you get when actually eating a watermelon. This also adds a slight note of sweet watermelon candies, but again, it's VERY subtle. FLV Watermelon SMELLS like it'd be OP as fuck, but it's not. Like, not even close.
So the tropical notes. I wanted them to sit in the back. Just as a bit of an afterthought to keep you coming back after the exhale. Let this one sit a few days to really bring out the tropical notes, but once you do, the LA Banana Cream will give that sweet banana note, and the TPA Coconut will hit you with some delicious coconut flakes. There's a little bit of the throat hit on this recipe, but that might also be from my nicotine being old. Who knows.
I dig the original recipe, and I think this one is good if you're tryin to get some of that S U M M E R T I M E S A D N E S S ,
or you know, you just like dicks.
WELL FUCK ME SIDEWAYS. I revisited this bullshit after over a year of not mixing it due to not having the needed flavours. Well I finally restocked and picked up a few new ideas for Drunken Pears Revisited. I was super worried that maybe the original wasn't going to be as good as I remember simply because I came up with this recipe when I had very little idea of what the fuck I was doing with my mixes. However, that first vape on this recipe was a reminder why I loved this shit so fucking much back in the day. It's tart, bright, and full of flavour on the inhale, but that back end has all the boozy throat hit, creamy bakery notes, and dark sugar that you're looking for. So lets dive into what I changed, because there's quite a bit.
Back when I first came up with this idea, I felt like I needed so much to make it work. There was Torrone, Joy, Vanilla Swirl, vanilla bourbon, FA Fuji, and two different whiskey flavours. It was a fucking mess. Shit that so obviously doesn't need to be in there. So I pulled out all of that shit and focused on amplifying the base flavours and letting things play off of each other. The removal of FA Fuji allowed me to focus more on refining the pear without the crutch that is Fuji. Adding in just a touch of TPA Pear gave so much more authenticity to the fruit, as TPA's pear option has a lot more of that earthy and sort of browned pear note, while FA Pear adds that brightness and tart flavour. Adding in HS French Vanilla Ice Cream was the best fucking decision I could have made. This allowed me to remove the Vanilla Swirl, while still adding SO much more flavour to the TFA VBIC. Honestly, I don't know what the fuck I was thinking by adding Torrone and Joy in the first iterations, because those flavours just do not work in this recipe, whereas CAP CDS, on it's own, does everything I need. Finally, the TPA Toasted Marshmallow and Brown Sugar to add that baked note. These two just work together so beautifully here.
Great as a shake and vape, but give it a week or so and the pears will calm down, the ice cream will get super fucking dense, the bourbon flavour will shine a bit more, and those bakery notes will flesh out so much better.
This recipe has always been my signature recipe, I feel. Every mixer seems to have one. And this new, revisited version just reiterates why I loved it so much in the beginning. Except now, I came at it with over a year of added knowledge about flavours and mixing, and now it's better than I could have ever imagined. Big shouts to Vurve for constantly suggesting I pick up HS FVIC, and huge ups to Rageisalotofwork for giving me the idea to add TPA Toasted Marshmallow to accentuate the brown sugar notes.
Mix this shit, yo.
Beginner Blending Strawberry Cream Bull Shit Fuck You.
I just wanted to stop vaping Smother U for a few days, and felt like something fruity for Monday's show. Another bullshit strawberries and cream. Mix it if you want, ignore it if you want, I don't really care. It's pretty alright, though. The Vanilla Whipped Cream and CAP Bav Cream is quite nice in here. Mouthfeel is a little strange so I might mess with that later, but for now, it's thick and sugary and the strawberries do come through pretty nicely.
"Fuck it." - Jerry aka DrunkLord aka BIGDICKMFER
Decided to start a fight during Listen To This With Yanchunis when ol CenCalVape said fruit recipes were boring. Tried to coax him into a live mix off but he displayed true cowardice, so I still went with it. My dude DrunkLord aka Jerry aka Barry aka Dairy aka Mary suggested a dragonfruit recipe, so that's what we got here. Something like a dragonfruit/pineapple bubble gum. I'm not going to give crazy notes on this because, well, this was a bullshit five minute off the top mix.
However, it's pretty decent if you're looking for a new shake and vape fruit recipe. That Juicy Fruit bubble gum flavour is up front here, but the body of the mix has some nice tropical and pineapple notes, and that strawberry candy sweetness comes in on the back end.
It's been a minute since I've enjoyed a simple fruit mix, so I'm happy. Give it a mix and keep fucking up.
What up, nerds? CokeCan here with another fuckin bamboozler of a recipe, a little Apricot Tobacco mix. Pull up a chair and get ready to fuck around with another bangin tobacco vape. But you know me, I like to keep them tobacco recipes friendly to people that may not actually dig tobaccos.
So first off, we got FA Apricot. If you don't have this concentrate in your possession yet, stop being a boo boo baby asshole and throw it into your cart right now or I'm going to find you and I'll pummel you into submission. Then use your unconscious body like a puppet and make you order it anyway. You can thank me later. This shit is one of the best flavours I've come across in my year plus of mixing. It is my replacement for that razor blade bullshit that is TPA Juicy Peach and basically any other peach concentrate on the market. This shit is potent. It's like pulling a ripe as fuck apricot off whatever plant those shits grow on and biting right into that juicy orb of sexual prowess. There is some slight tartness to it, like most other stone fruits, but it's so goddamn heavenly. No harshness to be found, just a perfectly accurate apricot. I guess you're fucked if you don't know what that tastes like. Welcome to Flavour Town, you fucking maniac.
So I'm backtracking but whatever, I said all peach flavours suck, and while I stand by that, JF Honey Peach is tasty. It is more mellow and works better as an accent note to something like FA Apricot. But this concentrate has some smooth creaminess to it with subtle notes of peach and citrus, almost like those peach ring candies. It adds just a touch of extra sweetness to FA Apricot that just works here. You don't necessarily need it here, but it is a nice addition.
Tobacco. JF RY4 Double. It's great. I know I love FA Soho, but this shit is just as good. Soho is mild and light, while RY4 Double has a deeper and darker note to it with hints of caramel and wood. Those notes play beautifully with the apricot to create something of a bakery profile. And if you know anything about me, you know I'm an impatient piece of shit, and JF RY4 Double doesn't need much steeping to be good. There's no weirdness to it straight away, and it just improves and pushes itself to the front of recipes after steeping. This concentrate is also great for both sides of the tobacco spectrum. If you like that flavour in your recipes, you'll notice it's tobacco body and be satisfied. If you aren't trying to fuck with tobacco flavours, this one will fuck your mouth with bakery notes of brown sugar and caramel.
The other flavours here, TPA Toasted Marshmallow, TPA Brown Sugar, CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, and FW Butterscotch Ripple are all here to accent the beauty that is FA Apricot. The toasted marshmallow and vanilla whipped cream add some more mouthfeel and body to the mix, while bridging the gap between the extremes of fruit notes and tobaccos. The brown sugar and butterscotch ripple accentuate the cream notes and play off the fruit to create something similar to a poached apricot. Honestly, this whole recipe is just to showcase how fucking versatile this apricot concentrate truly is. It's like a computer program was invented that is your perfect sexual partner. A digitized creature that will fulfill every depraved fantasy at once and still tell you it loves you after you melt into a puddle of self doubt and infatuation due to how quickly you finished.
Fuck it, I don't want to talk anymore. Just mix this up and vape it.
First recipe of 2017 from ya boy. I've been chasing a straight up marshmallow recipe for nearly a year. Marshmallow Man was an e-liquid I really enjoyed before I got into DIY, and even though it has fond memories tied to it, I fucking hate it now. I tried it a few months ago and I honestly believe that shit is just 5% TPA Marshmallow and fucking 10% EM. Fuck that. So this isn't a clone, it's just me trying my hand at a straight up marshmallow. Creamy, thick, and sweet as fuck without any real sweetener.
This has been the collective effort of nearly a year of trial and error, getting pissed off, and making myself sick from some nauseating first attempts. In here, the use of the dual marshmallows really push that sweet flavour and thick mouthfeel. This shit is chewy, and I love it. Using both TPA and CAP Vanilla Bean Ice Cream pushes that mouthfeel without worrying about muting the flavour too much. JF Yellow Cake and TPA Bavarian Cream are in here to add more dimension to the marshmallows, while giving a touch of dark sugar sweetness to the creams. You already know why CAP Sugar Cookie is here. I usually use CAP SC at 3 to 4%, but here, 1% just gives enough of that warm cookie flavour without pushing the recipe into the realm of a bakery. Something new for me is CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream. This shit is goddamn perfect. It's thick and sweet at low percentages, and when it's pushed into higher percentages, it works as a beautiful addition to custards. Adds some of that "sour" note you want in a custard. Obviously I didn't want that here, so 1% just added some more vanilla notes while helping emulsify the other thick mouthfeel additions. Finally, TPA Vanilla Swirl and FA Meringue give the feel of sweetener without actually using EM.
Thanks to the Vanilla Swirl, Vanilla Whipped Cream, and Meringue, this recipe will succeed more after about 5 days. But you know me, I'm a shake and vape kinda mixer, and this shit is tasty as all fuck straight away. A little harsh because of the Vanilla Swirl, but nothing intolerable, and honestly, my nicotine might be turning bad, so I can't tell if it's that or the Vanilla Swirl giving me that slight throat hit. Either way, Shake and Vape certified.
I'm fucking glad to finally be able to release this shit. It's been a long, painful, arduous, and annoying road to get here. But now I'm vaping some fluffy, hella sweet nostalgia that just makes me smile. Give it a mix, let me know what you think, and keep fucking up.
I told y'all I'd do it. That end of year banger that wont necessarily make waves for Recipe of the Year, but should make you feel bad for giving Chrisdvr the crown. This shit is a simple mix with a twist. You already know this was the year of motherfuckers dropping revisions on different strawberry creams. We had Skiddlz dropping a countless flurry of the same recipe. We had Vurve and his dumbass Egyptian Cum bullshit. Can't forget ID10-T and his Game of Thrones dragon juice. Manson dropped Shortdick, might have been last year, I can't be bothered to pay attention, but either way, fuck off. Even the self-proclaimed God of DIY Wayne Walker jerkin off My Man and making a clone of it. Y'all trippin.
So let me bury these fucks in a shallow grave so I can watch them as they become worm food. We got the classic strawberries in here, no reason to fuck around with that. But then the mix of TFA VBIC and JF Bavarian Cream creates a real thick and sweet ice cream base with just a touch of that brown sugar and maple notes. Oh that touch of Butterscotch Ripple? Yeah, put that in your ice creams. Don't ask, just do. Thank me later. Finally, that little touch of coconut and meringue. That's where I'm fucking y'all sideways. I ain't fucked with coconut all that much, but in here, it lightens up everything without muting the heavy flavour. Instead of something with crazy mouthfeel, that coconut and meringue adds not only a punch of coconut milk sweetness, but also the subtle hint that you dropped a handful of those delicious coconut flakes in your ice cream.
Shake and vape certified, since that's what I'm about. But after two days, that meringue mixes in with everything to give the coconut flavours more sweetness and helps emulate more of that coconut milk idea. And it lets the VBIC get to it's prime. But shake it up and vape it and love it.
Fuck 2016. Fuck your resolutions and "2017 will be my year" bullshit. Next year is gonna suck too. Deal with it. Keep mixing. Keep fucking up.
Beginner Blending Live Mixing concoction. The idea came from DrunkLord aka Jerry aka Barry aka Dairy's request for a strawberry-pineapple La Croix recipe. In here, I avoided the obvious idea of using TFA Pineapple because the mix of TFA Dragonfruit and CAP Golden Pineapple creates something far more sweet and rounded out. My use of TFA Strawberry Ripe, TFA Strawberry, and JF Sweet Strawberry creates a lovely strawberry note that has the best blend of authentic strawberry notes with that candied strawberry syrup. The use of FA White Wine imparts the mouthfeel, throat hit, and flavour of a sparkling water to further link it to the La Croix counterpart. Using the low percentages of FA White Peach, JF Juicy Lemon, and FA Lime Tahiti Cold Press just creates a bridge of citrusy notes that not only boosts the fruit notes into an even better place, but also gives a little more body to the sparkling water element. If you're missing summertime during this cold front of winter, mix this up, kick back, and remember the sunshine.

So ya boy is sick with a sore throat and some sneezy bullshit, so I needed something simple and smooth to vape on during the BBPodcast. FLV Milk & Honey was an obvious choice, but I wanted to add a little extra body and sweetness to it to mask some of that underlying chocolate notes that hide around in FLV M&H. CAP Sugar Cookie was the best choice. Just adds some great mouthfeel, makes it even smoother, and adds some great sugary sweetness.
A simple fucking mix. Nothing special here, but it's a great recipe if you're looking for a quick ADV that is smooth as fuck and sweet with a lot of full-bodied flavour.
