    Suggest walking lightly and to creep up on spearmint... it is a very powerful flavor that can go form Ahhh to Yuck in a heartbeat if you add too much. I have used Polar Blast to add cool ever since I gave up on Koolada, but I have also used mints sometimes as well (spearmint, wintergreen, peppermint, etc). I can't stand the taste of menthol, and don't normally vape fruits, but a sweet fruit flavor like Lychee can tame it.

    For alcoholic drink profiles at various times I have made/liked more than once Amaretto, Jamaican Rum with just a trace of Coke as an after taste, Spiced Dark Rum Nog's, the Green Fairy and my Evil Root mostly. While I have come up with some others (based on tequila, scotch, bourbon, vodka, wine, etc), they came and went away. And some were so far back I don't remember what they were without digging thru the old recipe database.

    If you are feeling "herbal;" FLV Basil plays nicely with both gin and rum. Mojitos translate well to vaping. And, the rum/mint combo pairs easily with fruits, like pomegranate, blueberry, etc.. :)
    That'd take some creativity. The challenges, as I see it, are the egg white, and the orange flower water. There are no direct concentrate equivalents that I am aware of. Meringue might(?) cover the silky thickness egg white adds, as well as kiddie in for the simple syrup component. Orange flower water, is something I have not personally come across. But, just spit-balling; I am thinking, just a hint of orange, with a compliment of honeysuckle, to add that floral note.

    The rest: cream, lemon, lime, gin, and soda water (fizz); seems quite doable. though, with that many ingredients, I can see it still taking some time (and many testers), to get the balance right. ;)

    Well and all, as a Scotsman who loves a good Speyside Whisky here's what I do - I mix up a 40/60 PG/Vg mix to 16 strength nic and I add from my dripping botle one sixth of the bottle's tube length some White and MacKay's, Grouse, Grant's, Balllentine's, White Horse. Dewar's or Wiliam Lawson's ( in Spain, their domestic DYC 8 Year Old is as good ) to the mix and then vape it in a good dripper ( tanks kill any flavour nuances ) - been doing that for three years plus and I still like it!

    The Orange Flower Water is more of an aroma than adding anything to the flavour of the cocktail. Not exactly a garnish, which also adds a visual effect to the cocktail, but like a garnish you can pick up the aroma as you bring the drink toward your face. Many bars, at least the ones willing to put forth the effort to make the drink, do not use the flower water cause just a drop too much can destroy the drink. It’s potent stuff. I use it at home, but do not use it at dinner/cocktail parties where I am forced by friends to make the drink. Don’t know if an orange flavour would give that aroma or add to the flavour which I guess could also be beneficial. Vanilla extract is another ingredient that is not always added

    As for the egg whites – good idea on the meringue. The cocktail does call for simple syrup so perhaps a sweet meringue would be the ticket.

    I think you could probably start with .25% of your favorite orange or blood orange. 2% RF Soda Base gives fizz and the simple syrup. 4% VTA Botanical Gin is where I would start. CAP Lemon-Lime at 4% gives you the lemon and lime flavor. I would throw in .5% to 1% FA Aurora because it is magical for fizz and icy lime flavor. Meringue at 1-2% and maybe even Marshmallow at 1% for the frothy texture. Add FA Cream Fresh at 1% to 2% and 1 to 2% of a heavy, sweet cream flavor - VTA Sweet Cream, a Whipped Cream flavor, or even TFA Vanilla Swirl or WF Tahitian Vanilla Cream if you want the vanilla in there. No idea what you would end up with but this is my best guess for a starting point.

    We’re not vaping a double rum and coke’s, or Jager bombs, just good ol’ e-juice that tastes like our favorite cocktails or alcoholic beverages.
