Food, Drink and Vape Thread
« on: October 20, 2013, 08:41:46 PM »
Hi Caravela family :) As I get to know all of you, some have discovered that one of my passions is dabbling in gourmet cooking and mixology. Since I found vaping, I've added a third love to my pastimes and it fits in very well. I love to grow my own herbs and vegetables, cook something amazing and unique, and pair it with the perfect wine, beer or cocktail... and now I enjoy adding a great vape. The best part of this is that as I cook, I can take a sip of something and a hit from the mod too - all without leaving the kitchen.

Hoping some of you will share your recipes along the way. Here is one to get us started.

Angel's World Famous Homemade Guacamole with a Cucumber Mint Margarita and G.T.F.O by Mister-E-Juice (a slightly sweet tobacco flavored juice)

You’ll need:
8 ripe avocados
4 cloves fresh garlic, pressed or finely chopped
½ a large white or yellow onion
3 Serrano chilies, chopped finely (you can add some finely chopped Habanero too if you like it HOT)
2 ripe, firm tomatoes, chopped into small cubes
Chopped fresh cilantro
¼ cup pomegranate seeds
½ of a fresh lime
Sea salt

Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and spoon the halves into a large bowl. Add the garlic, onion, Serranos, tomato, a handful of chopped cilantro, and pomegranate seeds. Mix with a large spoon. Do not mash. The mixing process will break the avocado up perfectly. Salt to taste (best to use fresh ground sea salt) and squeeze the lime on top – mix again.

Serve with fresh tortilla chips (you can make your own tortilla chips by slicing up fresh-made tortillas and frying them in olive oil till crispy.)



Cucumber Mint Margarita
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 1/2 oz silver tequila
fresh cucumber slices
fresh mint leaves
orange slice

Muddle 4 thick slices of cucumber and a full handful of fresh-picked mint leaves in your shaker. Add the other ingredients plus crushed or chipped ice. Fill a tall frosted glass with whole ice cubes, cucumber slices, fresh mints leaves and a slice of fresh orange. Shake the cocktail vigorously until ice crystals form on the outside of the shaker, and strain into the glass. Top with a splash of soda water. (By the way - I double this recipe for a full cocktail.)



Salud and vape away!

Hi everyone,

So I am actually (relatively) new to vaping. Instead, I come from the beer world : ]

And I thought you guys would like this!  *pirata* *pirata* *pirata*

I would like to try that beer - great name! :)

Another beer I really recommend with a good vape is Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout. It's a rich creamy brew with a complex many-layered flavor - not at all bitter though. It really pairs well with a slightly sweet coffee e-juice, especially one with chocolate undertones.

Apologies that this is not modeled with a Caravela - that would obv be much classier ;)

Hey if anyone is interested, I have a great chili recipe. Goes great with ice cold ale and a non-sweet coffee-chocolate vape.

hahaha... well my lovely Blu, I have a problem. I cannot vape sweet! It makes me feel like I am choking on sugar fumes :(

So I've been limited to discovering and creating my own semi sweet or not-sweet juices. I know you like the sweet ones, so you would likely not be too interested. But I created a liquid that has a coffee base, with undertones of chocolate, almond and caramel. It just has very little sweetener in it, but you could sweeten yours up with a few drops of this and that :)

I definitely have the goods to add a little sweet to stuff. LOL
I have a 30ml bottle of sucralose so I can put a few drops in whatever I need.
I think it may be giving me congestion though.
I swapped out my silica wicks, and it's better, but I was vaping a menthol the other day (usually not my fav) and boy did my sinuses clear out. LOL

Yeah I made a DIY menthol that blew my sinuses away. Just soooo strong. Had to cut it down by half and it still opens me right up.  *scientist*

Lately I find myself adding a few drops of sweetener to my DIY's though - maybe I am changing as I grow more accustomed to vaping. I'm using flavors like butterscotch and cotton candy to sweeten with - the plain sucralose tastes like fake sugar or saccharine to me, and I've never been a fan of sugar or fat substitutes.

Hey I heated up the chili again tonight and it seems to get better every time it cooks! Yum!

Blu, do you like spicy food?

Chili in a can is too hot for me. LOL

I am pretty bland about foods, and like most things at room temp, esp my coffee. Nothing tastes good with a burnt tongue.
