    I agree, I wouldn’t do a sweet one for the fact of gunking up the coils.

    For those not familiar with Capellas fruits, They are good but most are way too sweet IMO.

    Am I the only one that thinks FW almost always seems sweeter than others?

    I don't have many FW flavors to make an opinion on that.

    I mixed 5 more boosy recipes a couple days ago. Used rum and bourbon this session. Need to get back to my first mixes soon.

    I have an old bottle of rarely used Koolada and I've just ordered a new bottle of WS-23. Wondering if a bit of cool would help any with my aversion to sweet vapes. A lot of times I'll mix something that's just a wee bit too sweet and I can't vape it.

    Couldn’t hurt to try. You won’t get a menthol flavor just cooling effect. I know it pairs well with fruits.

    Since I have a severe reaction to pg, there are limits on what I can try. Even a small amount of koolada sends me into hives.
    If anyone finds koolada made in vg, let me know.:)

    This might be worth a read...
    VG Koolada?

    I guess I can try mixing it with vg and alcohol and see if it stays in a liquid form. Thanks for the link.

    Just a cooling effect is good with me. Not a big menthol lover.

    My first mix of Blueberry/bilberry and VT Whiskey was way too sweet. My remix is perfect:)

    I haven't worked with Liquid Amber yet but from what I have read about it, it has the effect of fermenting fruit. A touch can totally change a tart cranberry into a softer, sweeter, saucier fermented cranberry. I have no experience but I know a lot of good mixers use it that way. As for the Margarita, I still think Brandy is the way to go. I think Aurora just kicks up the citrus a bit. HIC describes it as citrus zest with an undertone of Gin or some kind of wine. It might work in a Margarita to kick up the zest a bit. Worth a try.

    As for limes, I love FA Lime Tahiti Cold-Pressed and the Lime Tahiti Distilled. I often use them together for a more complete lime. Some people like TFA Key Lime for a Margarita. I will probably try both just to see which I like better.

    One of my favorite boozy juices so far! Delicious!

    Fizzy Sea Breeze

    Cranberry (TPA) 2.75%
    Lime Tahiti (Cold Pressed) (FA) 0.50%
    Lime Tahiti (Distilled) (FA) 0.25%
    Pink Champagne (FW) 2%
    Ruby Red Grapefruit (Natural) (FW) 2.75% (Don't sub any other grapefruit unless you try FLV Pink Guava which is my next plan)
    Russian Vodka (VTA) 2% (I think FA Gin would work well here too)
    WS-23 30% 0.75%

    You might enjoy it with FA Grapefruit. The cranberry is already tart and FA Grapefruit has a bitter/tart edge with no real sweetness and is weak for an FA flavor, so might get lost in the cranberry. It is worth a try. FW Ruby Red is more lush, IMO. It is sweet with a little tart - a nice blend of the two. The FLV Pink Guava is in a class by itself. It stands out, sweet and tart, strong, and adds juiciness like Cactus does. I think that might end up being my favorite once I get it mixed up. I will let you all know.
