    One of my favourite beverage juices and an ADV is an adaptation of a recipe by one of our DIY experts, @rogue zombie, which you can find here.

    A refreshing summer juice, just like the cocktail.

    The version I have to mix for HRH, which is less tart and a tad less mint:

    Mojito Havana 01
    [​IMG]

    The version I prefer - more tart and a tad more mint:

    Mojito Havana 02

    Thanks for this!
    If I decide to leave the pomergranite out, do I need to adjust the % for the rest of the ingredients?

    The Earl

    FA Black Tea 2.5%
    FA Bergamot 1.5%
    TFA Sweetener 2 drops per 10mls

    This one is probably an acquired taste. If you like black unsweetened Earl Grey, this is very very close.

    I suppose you could sweeten it up if you like. And if you add dairy of any kind for milky, you'd probably need to up the rest a little.

    Earl Grey is a earthy tea with a Bergamot finish. Very refreshing, but like I said, maybe an acquired taste.

    Cocktails provide an endless source for DIY beverage juices. I am working on a Rhubarb Bellini at the moment. One of my favourites is a complex Whiskey Macdonald by HIC (HeadInClouds) posted on Vaping Underground (VU) here. Be sure to read his notes and comments to get a better understanding of this juice and what is possible and what not. In a class of its own and very addictive.

    Steep for two days.

    Besides his numerous free, and very good, recipes on VU, HIC also sells some great and not expensive recipes here. Some freebies there too.

    Normally i just add an extra percent of straw ripe. Sort of balances it out quite right

    Ah, I got it wrong then, thanks. The GuavaBerry sounds great in any case. Printed for my next mixing session.

    Although saying that I did leave out the marzipan and cardamon. Didn't have it for starters and also didn't want the macaroon. Still very nice.
    Used FA Oak and the rest Clyrolinx.
    I need to get all the other FA concentrates to taste the difference in this mix, not that I am unhappy with it now but would like to compare.

    A uniquely flavoured fizzy cola juice based on the soft drink created in 1880. Something different, always in my rotation.

    The recipe was released by its creator and brought to our attention by @Sickboy77 here. The original release on VapingUnderground here.

    HIC's VANILLA CHAI LATTE

    1% - 2% FA Black Tea (from barely there to definite tea)
    1% FA Vienna Cream
    0.5% FA Vanilla Tahiti (other FA vanillas will also work)
    0.5% FA Cardamom
    0.5% FA Cinnamon
    0.5% FA Anise
    0.5% FA Clove
    ** 0.15% FA Honey - measure carefully, but definitely include it! **

    This is definitely an acquired taste and best enjoyed after a 2 week steep. In my opinion I feel that the spice notes and honey calm down and fuse nicely after steeping. There's a nice creaminess to it and not overly sweet. As a shake and vape the honey and anise notes are very prominent. This juice is a nice palate cleanser.

    This sounds so good, I have missed this HIC recipe. Do you know if it is FA Cinnamon Ceylon or does FA have another Cinnamon? What percentage Black Tea do you use?

    I'm not sure if FA have another cinnamon. I also searched quite abit before purchasing the cinnamon ceylon. It seems to work well in this recipe. I used 1.5% Black Tea and after the steep theres a definite tea flavour.

    Speaking of Chai....

    Finally got my Chai like I wanted - more milky/creamy

    White Girl

    INW Shisha Chai 2%
    FA Fresh Cream 2.5%
    FA Vanilla (any) 1%
    FA Caramel 0.75%

    I would describe it as a Spicy Chai Latte

    EDIT: I added 1% FA Black Tea, and think it was a slight improvement. Not necessary though.

    I wouldn't mind a good coconut milk, that's if anyone has one.
