    This is my all day, every day vape. I make and use other juices but I probably use this 90% of the time. It is a not-too-sweet, slightly tart, tropical blend that began as a half-clone of Propaganda's Illuminati but went well off the rails.

    I have posted this recipe before but this is sufficiently different to be posting again, I think. A number of ingredients have either been added, changed, or altered in amount. Because it's my ADV, I am constantly tweaking, and I can't promise it won't change again. However, in my opinion, this is a vast improvement over the original.

    This recipe does not contain diketones. Certainly as far as I know, anyway.

    Cabana Boy
    5% TFA Orange Mandarin
    1% CAP Sweet Tangerine
    2% TFA Pineapple
    2% CAP Golden Pineapple
    3% CAP Yellow Peach
    2% TFA Ripe Strawberry
    1.5% TFA Sour
    optional 1-2% TFA Koolada

    Recommended 35/65 PG/VG, but do what you will. Shake and vape.

    If you are missing ingredients, here's some help: Previous versions used 6% TFA Orange Mandarin and no Tangerine, 4% TFA Pineapple can be used, as can 2% TFA Strawberry (not ripe) in a pinch. The above recipe is definitely recommended, though, as is using the Yellow Peach.

    I love the Dragon Punch. Bet I am going to like this also.
    Thanks for posting. Have to order the Yellow peach so it will be a while before I can make it. Currently traveling so will have to wait until I get back home.

    No problem! Please let me know what you think of it when you try it out! You could probably use another peach flavor if you just wanted to try, but CAP's is quite different IMO. It is unusually tart for a peach flavor; it's not inauthentic necessarily but lacking the sweetness of a real peach. I happen to like that, and use that particular peach more than any other.

    That being said, I purposely try to make recipes that can use substitutions and this is no exception. I just think (as I said above) that the posted recipe is superior to my other versions, and there were many other versions. There may still be more!

    I just updated my wish list with CAP Yellow Peach & TFA Orange Mandarin. The rest I have.
    I make your Dragon Punch often. Good stuff. :thumb:

    Ha! this sounds fantastic, and I have exactly zero of these flavors! My luck! Nevertheless, I've added them all to my list of flavors to look out for. (many Capella flavors, especially, can be difficult to source over here)
