I was inspired by an episode of noted, I-D10T reviewed FW Citrus Soda and said that it was close to Mountain Dew, and had some sort of powdery effervescence.. And he wasn't wrong. The problem is that the powderyness came off as dryness and harshness to me. The only thing i had to correct this was INW Cactus. One time while mixing this, i accidentally put too much cactus in, and actually liked it. The aloe quality of cactus at high percentages blends into the citrus of the soda and really tones down the soapy notes i get from Cactus. The soda gets wet, loses the harshness, maintains some of it's carbonation, and all is right in the world.
I'm also very sensitive to sweetener, so i use the weakest sweetener i have found and only put one drop per 30 ml. Obviously, use whatever sweetener you want and sweeten to taste.
This is an old recipe that I've been making for 4 years exclusively for a friend who refuses to vape anything else. The Bavarian Cream is pushed a lot higher than I would normally push it, but the spiced note really comes out at this percentage. The syrupy richness of Sweet Mango at this percentage blends into the Bavarian Cream after a one week steep. After a week, they blend together to make a rich and lovely full bodied mango cream.
I had a friend request his favorite juice. Vape Hooligans stopped making this liquid 4 or 5 years ago, so i had no reference whatsoever. Just someone else's memories from like 5 years ago.
I had to be an internet detective to figure out what was actually going on here.
I found a YouTube review of the commercial liquid from 6 years ago where they reviewer described the profile.
Then i found a 5 year old "Clone" recipe on ELR that was close but not exactly right. (Can be Found here to give this guy credit: http://tjek.nu/r/6HTD )
Then we went through 6 months of testing. Changing concentrates, and adjusting percentages.
At first i was using RF Grape, but since that flavor is now discontinued, i had to go with FA White Grape from Hollywood Vape's clone recipe. The result is good, but definitely different.
The result you see here is really the best it's going to get according to my friend. They haven't released the actual recipe and they never will, but this is close enough: that why it's a remix.
