    Replying to my own post, but I couldn't figure out any other way to rate this. It isn't quite right. Vapable, but not quite right. The lime is not as present as I would want in a Margarita. Maybe Key Lime or the VTA Persian would be better. Maybe even a drop of (gasp) citric acid or TFA Sour. I don't know without experimenting and probably won't since the Margarita wasn't one I particularly wanted. If I am going to not drink, there are other cocktails I would prefer to not drink. :D

    I thought you already had that.
    FA Florida Key lime is so good but it fades so fast.:(

    Thank you much. I'm just getting started with orange. I think I'll love the orange mixes as long as I can keep the sweet reasonable.Orange Cheesecake is right up my alley.I'll have to look into a mix for that.:) I'm really hoping to get the up front taste of orange without much sweetness if that's at all possible. Just getting started here........

    Cranberry, FA Sicilian Mix (citrus mix), or FA kiwi Can tone them down nicely if they prove too sweet. Maybe try Cap sweet tangerine 4% + FA kiwi 3% and see how you like it. FW blood orange 3% and INW raspberry Malina 1% are a lovely pair as well.

    If tobacco flavoring doesn’t help... WTA or whole tobacco alkaloids might be something to consider. Before I started DIY I had a friend who had trouble shaking cigs. I bought him some WTA commercial juice which helped him over about 7 weeks to drop them altogether. I haven’t the slightest where to purchase (for DIY) etc, but I don’t see why it’d be any less obtainable than the liquid nicotine or salts we usually use. You may already know all there is to know concerning but, if interested, doing a quick google search I found these...

    Good to see you here,@NolaMel . I can't vape cherry but I'd be interested in your Blackberry mixes if you like them.

    @Letitia I have some pre-mixed and well steeped cheesecake bases. One TFA and one Pur. Think I'll fast track a couple small simple orange cheesecake mixes.

    I used 2% FW Blood Orange.1.5% FA Mandarin and 1% FA Orange. Filled the rest of the bottle with TFA cheesecake base mix. Not sure if I'll do another with the Pur cheesecake base yet. What's the minimal steep time on this?

    Good morning Fran. You wake up with a head full of questions don't you? lol
    Fa orange cream is a good mixer and yes the cream is sweeter. Add 1 or 2% of the FA mandarin. I also like it with lemon or lime added.

    For the cheesecake a week will be good, 3 weeks better.

    Both CB and BB peak my interest. Would you mind sharing how you use these or a recipe?

    Ty:) I'll probably not get the Orange Cream. Sweeter is something I don't need.

    @Letitia I do have the FW Blood Orange but it's just a tiny bottle. I need more.

    ok I got out my squeeze lemon and added 4 drops in a 30ml mix to cut sweetness.It still doesn't work well for me. I'm not sure if I've ever tried using vinegar before but I'm about to try it.

    Since I'm in for a 3 week steep I figured I'd do the same orange mix with the steeped Pur cheesecake base.

    Some like it as low as 1%. I like any type of mix fruit forward so I would probably start at 2.5%.

    A boozy tea is way out of my norm. I'm expanding my horizons...LOL. I might even like it.

    TFA Almond amaretto 3%
    FA Black tea 2%
    FW Blood Orange 2%

    Aroma sells unflavored WTA liquid. Down the page a bit but it's on their website. It's pretty expensive to use straight up in DIY though. What I've been doing is mixing it at about 20% with finished juice at vape time.
