So i’m Just starting (and really enjoying) my mixing forays but it would be really good for me to have some success to keep my motivation going. - I’ve already posted an attempt at a simple cake recipe but I’d really appreciate it if anyone could link me some solid 2 ingredient recipes that will give me the confidence and momentum to keep experimenting.
Have you mixed that one? I think it was a Darth recipie. I looked at it yesturday and was like huh???8% on inw???really. Hmmm. I plan to mix tomorrow but I think I’m used FA custard and dropped the percent down to like 4 or 5. But really wonder if I should go for the 8%.
No that’s @Josephine_van_Rijn’s recipe but it sparked my Cherilada recipe because it was the first cherimoya recipe I made, thanks to my gal Jose.
8% on cherimoya isn’t high at all for that recipe and it is a surprisingly weak flavor for inw. If I am making a cherimoya mix, I start at 5% minimum because it takes a lot
I am enjoying Citrus Mix (FA) at the moment and think it goes really well with Lemonade (Flavorah) and my current favourite mixing it with Atmos Lab Ouzo. I realise Atmos Lab aren’t readily available to everyone, so Anise (FA) may be an alternative if you like a Fruity strong flavoured aniseed type lip smacking 2 flavour mix
@Alcheval, i enjoy 2-flavor mixes with Vanilla (bean) ice cream and one of many fruits - usually 6% each (or 8% if i’m in the mode for bigger flavor hit) - final target is a 30/70 PG/VG 3mg
i call it Fruit VIce (check my recipes for some examples), so i would do “Mango VIce”, “Orange VIce”, “Strawberry VIce” and so on. one of these will always be in my daily rotation - you can keep alternating the fruity side - i also did pineapple, blueberry, caramel, lemon … with very satisfying results. gives me confidence that i can mix
i have VBIC from TPA and VIC from HiLIQ, i keep using one or the other. you can add a hint of sweetener or cooler (any brand you prefer) also as/when/if you like.
I like the simplicity and results of this simple concept and can play around with it a lot (more fruity, less ice cream…etc)
example: Orange 6% + Vanilla Ice Cream 6%
thing is, from my limited experience, any mix with Vanilla Ice Cream needs min 2 weeks to really develop - my mixes with VIC always turn goldish when they’re ready
other 2 flavor mixes i tried are: Strawberry + Banana, Kiwi + Lemon, Mint + Lemon, Grape + Peach, and an interesting one that’s currently steeping is Honey + Yogurt [adding couple more with my new DIY Ginger flavor: Ginger + Pineapple, Ginger + Lemon]
again ratios can be whatever you decide for the top flavor vs supporting flavor or equal… and really depends on your taste and which brand flavor you have. some testing needed here… easy to do is, mix a 10% sample of a single flavor, then combine 2 of these together (gives you a new mix with 5% of each flavor) - “vape test” it then refine from there up or down for one or the other until you estimate the best %
