    Anybody who quotes John Madden in recipe notes gets extra points for innovation and risk-taking. I can actually mix this so I will do, @method1, although that 7% Flv Cola makes me as nervous as a quarterback facing a Reggie White and Lawrence Taylor blitz. :pesas:

    The cola is very mild by FLV standards.
    You can also sub the lemon for any citrus of your choice (lime, orange, mandarin) etc - quite a few tasty combos to be had.

    I'm liking the citrus variations.
    Also a note - used FA ice cream because it has an inherent caramel not that seems to match well with cola.

    Sidecar

    An explosion of exotic spices & and citrus served shaken, not stirred.

    Developed as part of the TFV Layerz series, full video here:



    Based on the early 1900s classic cocktail, the Sideca is a classic cocktail enjoyed the world over. The original recipe calls for equal proportions of lemon juice, Cointreau (orange-flavored liqueur) and Cognac. Modern interpretations include a version with Bourbon instead of rum with a dash of bitters called The Bourbon Sidecar. This version is based on the latter with the exclusion of bourbon.

    FLV Back Bar Bitters is a revelation & I can see many recipes spawning from this unique flavour. This a a fantastical, deep bouquet of florals & spices which will add a magical touch to any mix. With hints of cinnamon, orange peel, ginger & cloves, it creates a complex and balanced aromatic & spicy additive.
    A touch will make a wonderful spiced cookie, mulled wine and add allure to a boring fruit punch!
    I use it sparingly here as I want the orange to shine. 0,5 is plenty but can work at higher %'s if you prefer a more pronounced aromatic kick. The inherent citrus notes compliments the Blood Orange perfectly to create a deep and true orange base.

    FLV Blood orange announces itself loud and proud here. Not as bitter as it rivals, this beauty brings a freshness and vibrancy without being sweet nor tangy. A realistic & bold blood orange flavour with just enough zest without being overbearing.

    FLV Lemon at 1% brings a refreshing bright & tart lemon to enhance the deep blood orange. Any higher and it will dominate...

    An overnight sleep, well shaken, and she is good to go!

    0.5% (FLV) Back Bar Bitters
    3% (FLV) Blood Orange

    Layerz Pink Gin

    A classic gin cocktail with a hint of rose & cucumber.

    Watch the Layerz development notes and recipe development here

    Based on the craft gin craze, I recreated a Rose & Cucumber Tonic using the new FLV Citrus Soda, infused with Rose and Cucumber as the mixer.
    This is a homage to Juniper, an outstanding juice by my favourite local juice maker, @Oupa from Vapour Mountain. Pick up a bottle and let me know how it compares here...

    FLV Gin is a masterfully created, authentic dry gin which leaves little guesswork to the vaper as to what they are tasting. The resinous, piney flavour, inherent to the Juniper berry, is wonderfully balanced by citrus peel and a smidgen of spiciness from freshly ground peppercorns. There is a wondrous boozy element to the flavour which rounds the profile off expertly. The 'booziness' is not overwhelming in the least but rather augments the authenticity & overall Gin experience. I see this as the best bits of FA Fin and FM Pure Gin combined to create a well rounded & balanced Gin.

    FLV Rose Essence brings a delicate, true rose, sophistication to the mix and softens the gin ever so slightly. This is a very "safe" rose flavour compared to other overpowering versions, and will not kill your mix, if used with care. At 2% it brings a semi-rose tinge without being floral, nor does it hinder the Gin to shine. The TPA Rose Candy assists the FLV Rose Essene to punch through the Gin foundation, which can restrict other flavors to shine. In addition, this adds a splash of sweetness to a relatively dry Gin.

    FLV Citrus Soda brings a new level of an authentic lemonade/Sprite type flavor to the market. This is a fresh lemon and lime base with a touch of fizziness to perfectly emulate a Sprite like mixer. This is a more dynamic version of FLV Lemonade as it has more pronounced fresh lemon and lime notes. This acts as the mixer base and assists in "moisturising' the gin.

    CAP Cucumber fulfills two roles here: Firstly, it provides some juiciness to mix without detraction. INW Cactus does this slightly better but it imparts an unwelcome flavour in this melange. Secondly, the subtle cucumber flavor adds another flavor dimension/layer which concludes the overall profile with an intriguing little twist. I found 2.5% to be aptly enough but it can be increased to around 4% for a more pronounced cucumber taste.

    WS23/Koolada is optional at .50 to provide an icy feel.

    Give this one at least 3 days to settle down...

    Layerz Pink Gin
    1% (FLV) Citrus Soda
    2.5% (CAP) Cucumber
    2.5% (FLV) Juniper Gin
    0.5% (TPA) Rose Candy
    2% (FLV) Rose Essence
