Cranberry

Cranberry flavors always remind me of parties, celebrations and holidays. Sweet but tart, from berry fruit to desserts, it’s a versatile flavor that can be very unexpected! A powerful pop in juices, or even desserts like apple pies! I used to love picking them for my grandmother to make her famous cranberry cookies, sort of like a jammed up cookie with pineapples and mandarins.. I miss those! Will have to make a batch super soon. I also miss my grandmother even more.

You can try testing them out from 2 drops .04 grams up to around 6 drops .12 grams in 10ml bottles, 8 drops .16 grams to me was just too much for my little 10ml, but expect to taste cranberry immediately! It does tend to get top note heavy when used with a heavy hand, so keep this one low and enjoy all the ranges of notes in this beautifully done flavor!

Berry Jello Shot! 30ml

9 drops .18 grams Cranberry
6 drops .12 grams Berry Blend
6 drops .12 grams Acai
6 drops .12 grams Cotton Candy
3 drops .06 grams Marshmallow

Bet you can’t keep it to one bottle! 😛 This is a fantastic bright red fruit mix, always refreshing! You could add in some cool menthol at 4 – 6 drops too.. Let it sit at least overnight, but best after 3 days..

Apple Cranberry

Apple Cranberry doesn’t go well with coffee in the morning! Good thing I finished my coffee before trying this one out! I ran my bottles, from 3 drops .06 grams to 15 drops .30 grams (all 10ml bottles) and you would know, I picked up the one with 9 drops this morning and put it on my dripper! Just for giggles. Kind of glad I did it that way, as the flavor that hits me the most is cranberry, then the apple. Not saying bad at all, just expected the apple to say hi first. Tart, yes please, but it’s also a sweet taste, gorgeous really. I can see this in bunches of recipes like with other mixed fruits, tobaccos and creams.

I’d think this would really be more appreciated in the fall, right around Halloween thru Valentine’s day. Light but with full body, and I might even take this up a touch higher, say  around 12, but no higher than that. The aftertaste has left me hungry for the apples I have sitting on my counter. I was going to make apple cranberry chutney, as a vape, however, I have a craving for oatmeal cookies, so cookies it is, and my chutney recipe is a bit more advanced. I want to keep things simple for now, so you too must like my cookies! 🙂 Without waiting more.. here is…

Apple Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies! (trust me, you will love this!)
30ml

12 drops .24 grams Apple Cranberry
6 drops .12 grams Oatmeal Raisin
6 drops .12 grams Cheesecake
3 drops .06 grams Banana
3 drops .06 grams Yogurt

Now for what I think of this one.. it’s not a in your face, isn’t meant to be. If you want to raise up the taste, do it in increments of 2 drops only! Pushed too far, this will turn chemically. It’s also why if you keep things low, the flavor will grow on you, it wont take long to steep, and the way I have it, it’s good enough for me! In 3 days, once it’s had time to sit and mingle, it tastes like a good cookie with some fluffy bits, and the apple cranberry and raisin are all happy in my tank. I think I might take this one out to paint my porch today!

Try it out, spin it around and see what you think! You might want to add a dash of blood orange to this mix, to make the fruits pop out even more! There are other add ins you can do, but for now, this is a simple cookie recipe! 🙂
