Default Different Liquids

I know new members should usually use the search function...but i have no idea what to search for. Have any of you used diferent liquids in your Hookah Vases? Besides fruit extracts and coconut milk what other things have you used? I've heard of rum and vodka, but anything else?

I personally feel that water is all that is necessary.

If you are smoking a complex and flavourful tobacco in the correct way and are more focused on getting the full shisha tobacco flavour than clouds then adding flavour is not needed.

Just my .02

I will tell you this. Go by the smell of the liquid. Some say that milk makes it thicker and creamier smoke, but it doesnt. It might change the pull from the viscosity of the liquid, but that and temperature are the only things that will change the smoke. If you like the smell of vodka, then put it in. If you like the smell of lemons, then throw some in the base. If you like anti-freeze, then throw it.......wait never mind, dont do anti-freeze, but you get the idea.

I like to put lemon juice in mine because of its strong smell. Also, mint leaves/extracts work great. And teas in the base are prolly my favorite. Nicer teas like earl grey are pretty aromatic so they will add to the flavor some.

Try Nakhla you won't worry about anything other than water in your base. No need for it.

Also! A Hookah Bar near me puts highlighter fluid in the water to make the water glow under heavy blacklights. Is this unsafe?

Highlighter fluid? Like the marker-type thing? I would imagine so man. I do know if it was the stuff in those glowsticks you'd be screwed for sure.

one thing that sounds similar to the Highlighter thing is how at some bars they put in tonic water in drinks. Its the quinine that causes it to give off a florescent glow with black lights. that sounds more likely and it isn't as much a health risk.

+ Quinine helps against malaria (because knowledge is power! GO JOE!)

Honestly. I've tried alot of liquids. When it comes down to it cool iced water is the best. Helps with clouds. Flavor is still immense... & easy clean up.

Pineapple juice on occasion is nice. Same with some teas... But ice cold iced water is the best
