A Guide to Mixing Your Own E-Liquid Flavours

7th Dec 2016

At V2 Cigs we pride ourselves on the quality and flavour of our Platinum E-Liquids and you seem to love them just as much as we do, which is why our high VG e-liquids are consistently in our best-selling products! We’re always looking for ways we can help you get the most out of your vaping experience with V2 Cigs products, so today we’re going to be discussing something that’s becoming more and more popular amongst vapers: mixing your own e-liquid flavours.

We’re not going to be delving into creating your own e-liquids from scratch as it’s something that should only be attempted by professionals, so please don’t attempt to create DIY e-liquid unless you’re a trained professional. Instead, we’re going to be showing you how to can create delicious cocktail blends by mixing flavours you already have to hand. It’s simple, fun and easy to customise each recipe to create a brand new taste.

Mixing Basics

Before you begin, something to bear in mind is the nicotine levels that you’re going to mix together. For the most consistent results, choose two (or three, if you’re feeling adventurous!) liquids that have the same nicotine level before you create your e-liquid cocktail. It’s also worth noting that you’ll always get a better result if you mix e-liquids from the same brand, as each company uses a slightly different ratio of ingredients that can impact the taste of your e-liquid blend.

So, where do you start? We suggest starting off by choosing flavours that you know will blend well together. It’s best to start off simple, so a 50/50 blend of two e-liquids is an easy way to get used to creating your own flavour.

Look at the flavours you already have in your stash and decide which two will complement each other best and taste delicious at the same time - something like a 50/50 Chocolate and Peppermint blend will have the familiar flavour of dinner mints; perfect for that after dinner vape. Another popular first-time cocktail is Cherry Coke, which (as you’d expect) combines both Cola and Cherry.

Once you’re confident mixing flavours then you can start playing around with ratios to create your perfect blend. Is a 50/50 Chocolate/Peppermint blend a little too heavy on the minty flavour? Try scaling back to 70/30 and see if that’s more to your taste. The joy of mixing flavours is that you have full control and can cater to your exact preferences.

Our top tip is to keep a little notebook handy when you start blending your own flavours. That way you can jot down the exact ratio that really hits the spot so you can recreate it time and time again, without trying to guess exactly what you did the time before that made it taste so great.

Now you know how to mix your own flavours, we want to share a few of our favourites that we’d love you to try if you’re looking for a new taste. Whether you’re a coffee aficionado, mad about mint or consider yourself a total chocaholic, we’ve got you covered.
