    So I've been trying to avoid "fixing" my mixes until they've had more steep time, but this being a fruity one and thinking I already have a good idea of what it tastes like, I went ahead and added a little bit of lemon to the rest of my test batch. Flavors Express is the lemon it turns out I ordered. I tried to go small, 5 drops into the roughly 10 mL that was left. Potent stuff, at first it was tasting like berry lemonade. This morning the lemon has mellowed back so it's really just brightening up the berries as @dc99 said. Just a touch of tartness which I wanted. This is good.

    Only disappointing thing is that it seems like the Koolada has faded, I still get the coolness but not as much as I wanted. Maybe 1.5% next time.

    Wrote this one down, sounds delicious. Need to try the succulent strawberry anyway.

    Glad I can be inspiring. :) Let us know what you do too, I'm curious how others' tastes differ and what works for them. As I said in my last post the lemon was really the finishing touch for me. But YMMV.

    I haven't used Koolada in a long time. The WS-23 doesn't seem to fade any but you don't use as much.

    I had a minute to mix and used the Cap lemon Lime for the first time. Went easy with it.Some potent smelling stuff.

    I'm not really sure what happened. It seemed like the coolness stepped back as soon as I added the lemon. It may be the way the lemon flavoring plays with the Koolada that does it. Maybe because it's acidic?

    Thanks for the time and effort you put into this response IDJoel. I DO appreciate it.

    You are correct that I subbed Golden Pineapple for the original. That was in my notes section which I should’ve included on the screenshot.

    I will follow each of your suggestions as directed. Again thank you for your time to help me out.

    I've had more success with this boozy stuff than I've had with anything new for a long time. Prompts me to keep mixing the booze:lol:

    That's what I was thinking, should only need a touch more. I'm hesitant to doctor the mix again cause really it's tasting pretty good, but maybe 1.5% instead of 1% on the next mix.

    If this mix hasn't steeped much the Koolada might make a comeback. If not then you can add a bit more to the next mix.

    Does anyone have an opinion on the best Brandy flavor? Only one I have right now is FA.

    I sure did !
    I opened the FA Caramel Candy this morning and gave it a sniff - omg - it smells JUST like Werther's hard candies.
    Soooo - yep ! I quickly mixed up a 30ml bottle of it.
    Vapeable right off the bat just as it is - at this point I don't think anything will need to be added after time.
    Very happy with it !

    @Letitia I mixed a Orange Tobacco Rum that's pretty tasty but I'm desiring more of an Orange presence. My little bottle of FW Blood Orange is empty:( What do I have that would make a decent sub?

    Don't you have FA mandarin? That should work, it's a snv flavor tho I like it better if it sits for at least 24h. Flavors that can make orange pop are peach, apricot, mango, raspberry; .25-.5%.
