If you’re a DIY vaper who wants to move onto a more advanced recipe, beverage-inspired vapes may be the way to go. They’re challenging, but they’re also forgiving since they’re not quite as complex as more complicated flavors like cookies and sour candies.
Of course, if you want to make a beverage-inspired e-liquid, you have to take certain measures in order to execute it properly. We’re here to share some tips with you so that you can make delicious beverage flavors in no time.
Choose the Type of Beverage You’d Like to Make
First, you have to have a clear idea of the beverage that you’d like to make. Obviously, there are lots of different beverages out there, including colas, iced teas, lemonades, fruit juices, fruit punches, slushy drinks and so on. Having a definitive idea of what you want to create will ensure that you end up with a product that tastes just like what it is that you crave. This will also help ensure that you gather the right flavoring extracts to create a successful flavor replica.
Check Out Existing Recipes to Tweak
We always suggest checking out existing recipes before making your own, especially if you’re fairly new at the DIY vaping game. For instance, if you want to make an iced tea flavor, you can find plenty existing recipes online. Once you have an idea of the recipe you should follow, you can tweak it to make it your own.
Get Your Balance of Ingredients Right
Now, let’s talk about balancing the ingredients properly, as you know that this can make or break your vaping experience. For one thing, because beverage flavors are more delicate and nuanced than bolder flavors, we recommend going with a higher amount of PG than what you’re used to. PG will help bring out the more subtle flavor notes. Additionally, keep in mind that the more nicotine you add, the more understated your flavor will be. So, balance those ingredients wisely. Also, while the standard amount of flavoring ingredients in a DIY vape juice is 10 percent, you may want to go up to 12 or 15 percent so that the flavor is stronger.
Be Careful with the Sweetener
Beverages are sweet, but they’re also not overwhelmingly sweet, in most cases. Adding too much sweetener can make your beverage flavor taste more like a candy flavor. Remember that beverages are supposed to be refreshing, and too much sugar will prevent you from feeling refreshed. We suggest going with naturally sweet flavoring ingredients rather than adding a lot of sweetener to the recipe. And, keep in mind that you can always add more sweetener, but you can’t remove any once it’s in there.
Beverage-inspired Vapes Can Be an Addition to Your DIY Vaping Repertoire
Not only are they more advanced than single-fruit and other single-flavor vapes, but they’re also uniquely refreshing and tasty. Use the guide above to make sure that you go about making beverage vapes properly so that you can enjoy your batches in no time.
