    It’s similar to adding FA Brandy to fruit, but a much smoother effect. If you don't have FA Brandy, or if Brandy is too strong for you, Liquid Amber can make a fine substitute in recipes. It works well with apple, pear, pineapple, and other fruits. It supposedly gives a slightly fermented effect to the fruit. Maybe it would help some of those underripe fruit flavors. I haven't opened mine yet because I am having so much fun with FA Gin, VTA Vodka, FA Brandy, and all of my champagnes, esp. FW Pink!

    FW Pink Champagne does the best job, IMO, of adding the perception of effervescence to e-liquids of anything I have tried. Adding the effervescence was a mission for me and I have tried TFA Champagne, FA Wine Champagne, SC Soda Base, VTA Fizzy Sherbet, and the much-maligned VTA Blood Orange Champagne. I am always happier with the results when I use FW Pink Champagne. It is the fizziest to me. It works well in a Blue Raspberry Slush too. My MVP flavor.

    The slush is,of course,too sweet for me but the fizzy sounds good. I did use the Pink in a couple of the mixes I did the other day.

    Just gonna throw this out there... @FranC , seems like you gravitate toward sweet flavors although you don’t like sweet.

    I do like sweet, loads and loads of sweetness! So, when I buy flavors, I keep in mind that their original purpose is for food. What flavors in food are the sweetest? I find, watermelon, grape, apple are some of the sweetest cookies/candies etc.
    blueberry can be, but often isn’t.

    You may want to approach from that direction.

    Also, some vendors have sweeter flavors than others. I prefer TFA because they’re sweet. Some of the Cap I like is sweet, and OOO is like a sugar fest lol.

    INW will probably be a better one for you, I find their flavors very realistic, not terribly sweet, but they are imho a little harder to work with. Worth the effort though.

    FA and FW may be not too sweet for you, but I have no experience with some of the others, Hansen, Lor Anne etc.

    Sorry, know I spelled those wrong but spell check is not cooperating lol.

    In my early mixing days, I bought a lot of flavors that came highly recommended, and wondered why I didn’t like them as much as everyone else seemed to. I thought I was mixing wrong, when actually I was just using the wrong brands.

    I do require some sweetness. I once mixed a juice that was totally devoid of sweetness. I didn't like it at all. I have also made the rare mix that wasn't sweet enough and had to add a couple drops of em.

    I don't vape either watermelon or apple vapes. I do however like grape (they're not all sweet)

    I also think my tastebuds are very picky about what flavors they will allow sweetness into....LOL

    Finding the orange to be a pleasant floral also. Finding that I like the taste of the orange. Does anyone have suggestions for a good orange mix or a recipe that includes orange?

    I haven't got the Cap Cucumber and not sure I will but what do you think about these

    Cap Cucumber 4%
    Cap Lemon Lime 1%
    INW Cactus .3 or maybe WS-23?

    or

    Cap cucumber 4%
    FA Lime Tahiti 1%
    Hangsen Mojito 1%
    WS-23 .75%

    Maybe too much lime in that one.

    Other ideas without mints?

    Remind me what oranges you have please Fran. Orange, mango, and raspberry are a good combo. Passion fruit, orange, and hibiscus also blend well.

    I can't vape just a fruit blend. No matter how tasty I just have no desire. I do however love to blend fruits into other mixes. Cheesecakes,tobaccos,Liquors,maybe even a chocolate vape.

    I'm vaping this. Not a No 1 ADV but I like it well enough and I don't find it too sweet.

    Cap Hazelnut 2%
    TFA Cheesecake with Graham 6%
    Cap Toasted Almond 3%
    TFA White Chocolate 4%

    It's a bit over the flavor % I usually use.

    Do you like cream vapes? Some creams are not so sweet and I find myself using them more now.

    @FranC I’m happy you suggested I try INW custard opposed to letting it sit in my stash until I got around to it! It’s good!:p I’m loving those butterscotch-like undertones and the mouth feel is quite pleasing! I believe I could vape this alone all day. Though at the same time my minds working over time considering how well it’d work as a base in so many. I haven’t even tried all my custards and puddings yet but I’d venture to say this might be the best I have. It’d be a tasty sub for bavarian cream and more. I already know I’ll have fun stretching this one and simply enjoying it solo!
