The Best Vape Cocktail Pairings
The Best Vape Cocktail Pairings
Since we’re all adults here I think it’s safe to admit, drinking while vaping is fun! But sometimes your vape juice flavor clashes with your cocktail and the result can turn your taste buds sour. Here’s a curated list of my favorite vape juices to pair with my favorite alcoholic beverages.
Since I’m a dedicated researcher I took some time over the past few Holidays to test my vape juice theories. Trying cocktails all over Las Vegas was definitely a tough job, but somebody had to do it!
Bourbon and Whiskey
The classic American liquor, some say it's an acquired taste but I say it tastes like Freedom! Most Whiskey and Bourbon’s have a spicy rye flavor that kicks your taste buds into cowboy land, too much bourbon and you’ll be asking random folks “do you feel lucky punk?”
This is a tricky category to try and apply only one vape juice pairing to, so I broke it down into the best vape juices to pair with any standard non-flavored whiskey/bourbon that you enjoy.
VGOD Cubano Silver 60ml Vape Juice - Everybody knows that fine cigars and good whiskey or bourbon go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. Cubano Silver is one of the most accurate cigar flavors on the vape juice scene, fine smokey cuban tobacco comes together with rich vanilla custard.
Marina Vape Honey Bear 120ml Vape Juice - Honey is a timeless classic and it goes perfectly with Whiskey and Bourbon.
Stunna Cash Money 100ml Vape Juice - Stunna Cash Money is a sweet E-Liquid that takes a mixture of rich vanilla custard, sweet french vanilla cheesecake, and pairs them with aged Bourbon. What’s better than pairing Bourbon with more Bourbon?!
Mornings suck so why not perk up your day with a sneakily spiked coffee? I’m using the familiar Bailey’s, Amaretto, and Kahlua with coffee mixture as a jumping off point for these pairings. If you’re spiking your coffee with something else than you’ve got bigger problems than finding a good vape juice pairing!
TBCO Arabic Oasis 60ml Vape Juice - Arabic coffee mixed with fine tobacco, this E-Liquid is fully based on coffee tobacco flavors so you know it goes good with coffee.
Okami Haute Mocha 100ml Vape Juice - What's better than mocha? Not much! This vape juice takes the fantastic flavor of coffee and blends it with rich milk chocolate.
The elixir of the gods and probably one of the earliest alcoholic beverages our ancestors drank. Whether its a crisp white, a decadent red, or a bubbly moscato, I think these vape juices are perfect to pair with a tall glass of wine.

By The Pound Coco 60ml Vape Juice - A thick slice of buttery pound cake drizzled with rich chocolate syrup. Chocolate with wine is always a classic pairing and you can’t go wrong with pound cake either!
Food Fighter Dirty Danish 120ml Vape Juice - This one is more for wines on the sweeter side. A tasty raspberry danish filled with cream cheese is perfect to nibble on whilst sipping a sweet wine.
Screwdrivers - Tequila Sunrise
You know you’re in for a good time when someone breaks out the OJ and Vodka or Tequila. This is the go to drink for frats and sororities all across the southern US. These cocktails are easy to make and even easier to drink! But what kind of vape juice goes well with OJ and liquor?
Burst Citrus-Burst 60ml Vape Juice - A mouthwatering explosion of juicy citrus flavor goes perfectly with tangy cocktails.
Farmers Market POG 100ml Vape Juice - The timeless combination of Pineapple, Orange, and Guava come together in this refreshing vape juice. The orange flavor in these cocktails plays perfectly off the tropical mixture of Pineapple and Guava.
Long Island Tea
Because sometimes you just want 5 shots in a cocktail glass with a splash of cola. I’m not ashamed to admit, the Long Island is definitely my go to drink when I’m out and about. I mean who really wants to take 4 trips to the bar when you can just get a Long Island and sip on that all night? There’s so many different alcohols in a Long Island Tea that it’s hard to pin down the flavor profile. With that in mind here’s a few E-Liquids that are equally complex and pair perfectly with a tall glass of Long Island Tea.
Pachamama Passion Fruit Raspberry Yuzu 60ml Vape Juice - A unique blend of tropical fruits with a complex and tangy taste. The refreshing mix of citrus and sweetness pairs perfectly with tangy sweet Long Island Tea.
Lemon Twist Pink Punch Lemonade 120ml Vape Juice - This refreshing E-Liquid could pair well with just about any cocktail on this list, but when vaped with a Long Island Tea in hand the citrus notes become amplified to the point of perfection.
Mint Julep - Mojito
Some will say that it’s sacrilege to categorize these two cocktails together, but let’s leave geography out of it and focus on the taste. Both of these drinks have a sweet base mixed with alcohol and finished off with a mint leaf. The only difference is that Mojitos have a touch of sour lime juice added to give it a fiesta flavor. These two drinks are synonymous with summer time, so what Vape Juices are perfect for sunny weather and warm beaches?
Aqua Mist ICE 60ml Vape Juice - A refreshing mix of green apple, ripe peach, and tropical Kiwi, all blended with a cool menthol tate. If you’re overheating this summer then try the amazing combination of a Mint Julep with Aqua Mist ICE.
Dinner Lady Summer Holidays Strawberry Bikini 60ml Vape Juice - The irresistible taste of sweet strawberry lemonade is a perfect match for tangy sweet Mojitos. I mean, it even has Summer right there in the name!
Nothing says your on vacation like a tall glass of Pina Colada with a frilly colorful drink umbrella on top. Any time I leave the states the first drink I order out is always a Pina Colada, which doesn’t really make sense when I go to Canada, but I’m a sucker for traditions. The timeless blend of coconut with pineapple goes great with most vape juices, but there’s a few E-Liquids that pair exceptionally well with Pina Coladas.
Naked 100 Lava Flow 60ml Vape Juice - A tropical combination of strawberry, coconut, and pineapple makes Lava Flow the perfect E-Liquid to pair with a Pina Colada.
Charlie's Chalk Dust Pachamama Vape Juice Peach Papaya and Coconut Cream 60ml - Tastes just like it sounds, a juicy mixture of ripe peach, tropical papaya, and sweet coconut cream. The coconut cream goes great with colada, but what's really surprising is the amount of papaya and peach you taste after you vape this and take a sip of Pina Colada.
Khali Vapors The Fairmont 60ml Vape Juice - A sweet taste of pineapple ice cream blended with coconut milk and a hint of lemon juice. The mouth watering mix of tangy and sweet flavors makes this a perfect vape juice flavor to pair with a Pina Colada on the beach.
