Paw Paw Pie (Dismal Pie)
Paw Paws are a strange sort of fruit called a custard apple. It works wonderfully as a non-descript soft tropical flavor. It also makes great desserts (although I've seen it paired with fish before). It's creamy with a raw/ earthy sweet flavor. This is not a pastry sort of pie but more like a fruity custard pie in a graham cracker crust that was hand pressed with butter and sugar into the pan.
It's the wrong time of year for this fruit that naturally grows in the American Applachia as it's far too DISMAL outside ;).
VT Paw paw is nearly spot on for a real paw paw but far too soft so in order to bring it forward and make it a richer flavor over the creamy bit of the pie I brought in it's incomplete cousins to bolster it: Flv mango and wf cherimoya. The mango is sweet and bright whereas the cherimoya brings the rind and edge of the fruit with a slight bit of pineapple sweetness. To keep the smooth creamy flavor/texture a touch of flv vanilla pudding was used.
The crust is mostly flv graham cracker for the crust with a tiny bit of TPA CC (graham crust) that ties it in with the paw paw rather than sitting completely separate from the rest of the pie.
Tropical, sweet & creamy. Mango & Soursop (aka Charamoya or Guanabana) makes a great tropical blend. FLV Guanabana is the main Charamoya flavor of this recipe, WF Charamoya brings out a different side of it so they mjx well. My favorite mango is probably WF Island Mango so I picked it (I also may add a touch of Cap Sweet Mango to it, very good but more realistic taste. It's almost like mango skin, it's best in smaller percentages.) I've tried adding creams in this recipe, because Guanabana is a creamy fruit, but most creams didnt taste right in this mix, so instead I went with Fruit Smoothie. I think it worked good as a background in this. I added Golden Pineapple to help the Guanabana pop (Guanabana sort of has a banana
/pineapple taste to it). I like this one so far.
This is the first recipe I've posted on here. If you've never tried FLV Guanabana (Ive always called it the real fruit, a Charamoya), I really recommend it. Great flavor for the summer!
Feedback appreciated. Enjoy
O.C.D. (Orange, Cherimoya and Dragon Fruit)
I like a lot POG liquids but I'm also tired of mixing tons of recipes with different flavors that end up tasing more or less the same, so I decided to take the same citrus tropical vibe and create a new flavor profile.
WF Cherimoya is the star of the recipe. I have to thank my friends from Developed for making me try this flavor. It is a perfect mix of sweet tropical fruits in one single flavor, with notes of pineapple, coconut and something like a peach or mango that makes it perfect for this recipe.
CAP Juicy Orange is mediocre, in a good way. Orange flavors can dominate a mix very easily when paired with delicate flavors (like TPA Dragonfruit) and in this case I only needed a background citrus note, with some body and a light bitterness.
TPA Dragonfruit + INW Pitaya : This combo brings forward the best from both flavors. TPA is weak but it has the perfect juiciness and kind of strawberry sweetness, also being tropical. INW adds brightness and a floral note similar to hibiscus when used in low porcentajes. A perfect balance between to very different flavors for the same fruit.
FLV Smoothie Base: This flavor is a great homogenizer and, while TPA Dragonfruit does something similar, Smoothie Base also makes the rest of the fruits pop. The lemon note is not very noticeable at 1% but it manage to bring a good body to the entire mix.
Red Team Mixer's Showdown 5 on 6/11/19
Get immersed in the world of Puff The Magic Dragon. Asian tea with a combination of exotic fruits from the east form a red painting of flavors. The combination of Sweet and Eisai Tea creates a deep base with a spices and bold black background. The citrus mix of lemon and orange on FLV Tangerine contrast with tropical sweet taste of WF Cherimoya and the TPA Dragonfruit blends all together perfectly. Finally TPA Waffle sweetens the mix in a golden and dense way

GOT inspired mix made for FRESH03 saturday show - A pear dominate thick syrup brandy cocktail
I have always been a Yara fan, and lets face it that lady has a set!
For this mix pear is the star, WF ripe pear is full sweet pear with some flesh and juiciness. The pear halves is a sweet almost canned syrup pear which adds the syrup note to this brandy.
Cherimoya fills out the middle of mix with some body sweetness and pairs really nicely with the pear.
The yakima hops helps add that slight bitter note along with the brandy to add the warmth to give the impression of booze
FA brandy is not very booze but really adds a dark sweetness and sort of softens some of the brightness to the pair.
Sour apple was added for a light sharp note to contrast some of the sweetness and adds another note to the pear
Profile: Papaya and cherimoya curd topped with pistachio
So I did a hangout with @Alfredpudding and I may have told him, that WF Cherimoya SC smells like fart. That may have made him a little upset and when @MaxSavage heard that, he may have gone a little upset too. So I promised them, to make something with WF Cherimoya SC.
My initial try had Cherimoya at 3% blended with 1% WF Passionfruit and FLV Milk & Honey at 1.25% - and then the rest of this recipe, minus the TFA Papaya.
That was NOT a hit and tasted really weird. The taste I get from Cherimoya is that it's sort of sweet, but right there at the back-end, it has this sort of hops flavor to it. That just didn't go well with either passionfruit nor milk & honey.
To tame the back-end flavor of hops a little, but to still keep it in, I dropped Cherimoya to 1.25% and added in TFA Papaya at 1.5%, as I felt it would fit with the exotic thing I was after - and boy did that do the trick!
The pistachio does a nice little dance with both the cherimoya and papaya giving it a little sweet nutty twist. FLV Sweet Coconut joins the dance, and it's a straight rave of flavors!
The cream binds it all together and makes so very delicious, smooth and round.
You can rip into this right off the bat! Want it more creamy, give it a day or 2.
Feel free to mix, taste, review and enjoy!
