    Default Menthol Drops Recipe for Menthol Lovers

    Nuck posted a menthol drops recipe a while back on this thread Best attempt at a tobacco flavor so far

    I thought I would share the details of how I made it. It's awesome for that perfect menthol taste.

    Supplies:
    Menthol crystals (bought mine on ebay)

    Grain alcohol (ethanol - Everclear or Clear Springs - can buy it at your local liquor store). Nuck used absinthe.

    10 mL dropper bottle

    10 mL syringe

    3 mL syringe with the end portion cut off

    Small measuring cup or small drinking glass
    ----------------------------------------

    Crush the menthol crystals into a fine powder (I used a rolling pin to crush the crystals - nice to know the rolling pin is good for something hahaha!). Just roll the rolling pin over the baggie that the crystals are in until you get a good powder form.

    Scoop up 2.5 mL of the menthol powder into the 3 mL syringe and add to the small measuring cup. Be sure to try to pack the menthol powder into the syringe when you're scooping it into the syringe.

    Add 7.5 mL of the grain alcohol to the small measuring cup.

    Stir the mix and nuke for 5 seconds. DON'T nuke for more than 5 secs - if you're queasy about nuking (works fine for me) just sit the measuring cup in a bowl of hot water. You're goal is to completely dissolve all the menthol powder.

    Now pour the mix into the 10 mL dropper bottle.

    You can by-pass adding the menthol powder and the grain alcohol into the measuring cup and just add them directly to the 10 mL bottle. But I find that trying to align the syringe with the menthol powder on top of that small opening of the 10 mL bottle and pushing the menthol powder through that small hole is a pain.
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Now simply add 1 drop of your menthol mix per each 1 mL of your e-liquid (e.g., if you have a 15 mL bottle of e-liquid - add 15 drops of the menthol mix). Shake the e-liquid well. Add more drops as needed.

    CAUTION: don't vape the menthol mix straight - always add it to the e-liquid (ask me how I know hahahha)

    That's it!! Yum!!

    It's completely dissolved in the alcohol.

    But I think it's best to crush the crystals first that way you're working with a powder instead of shards.

    I've had a menthol mix sitting here for over a week and still good to go!

    I LUV my menthol, but at times I also like a tobacco taste mixed in with it. My fave is Hilton - mixed with menthol reminds me of my menthol light ciggies.

    Noooooo!! don't buy a pound - that would last you your lifetime and your grandkids and their grandkids lol!

    I bought 4 oz from gumby96 on ebay and it's a lot!! Probably could have gotten 2 oz and that's still a lot.

    I want to leave something to my grandkids when I am dead! Actually figure stop and PU some 10 ml bottles and mix up. Sell it at cost to help out the masses.

    Most places sell menthol drops $5 for 10ml. I bet you can make it for $1 for 10ml if not less.

    Mouse - you can experiment with the proportions if you want a stronger mix. But I found the 25% menthol/75% alcohol to be perfect for my needs.

    One of the businesses my hubby and I own is a sports bar - get the alcohol at wholesale - sweet!!

    I actually had bought the menthol crystals way back when I first started vaping. I'd add a shard or two to my liquid but soon got frustrated cuz I'd get that vicks vapo rub taste - ewwww!!

    The drops make it consistent to get exactly what you want.
