Default So how do you... from a hookah noob

Ok,
I had my mix earlier tonite that Sambooka suggested.
This got me to thinking of the endless possibilities on mixes,
my question that derived from this is this:

How do you figure out the good mixes, and even more so, the proportions by which it should be mixed?

Just try things that sound yummy thats what i have done and it has worked out for me so far.

If you like SB and AF try SB blue mist and AF watermelon. its pretty good.

and adding a little bit of mint into any mix always makes it taste good and gives you that nice refreshing flavor in your mouth.

How you based what goes together well, is like how you blend drinks. For example smoothies, drinks, and anything basically goes with mint.
How you base how much of each flavor depends on the strength of each flavor and deciding on whether or not you want certain flavors to stand out or not.
I'd type more, but someone else is going to type a much better version of what I'm going to say and I'm too lazy

there really is no science to this. you use your brain and imagine what would taste good when you mix it together, then you can figure out if your ratios are right after you smoke it.

Sometimes the shisha youd least expect to go together taste amazing!!! just try small bowls of your different flavors until you find a good mix.

heres what i would suggest:

tool around online and look at recipes for cocktails and shooters. make a note of flavors you see being combined often (banana/pineapple/orange, etc) and try that out. i wouldnt start out trying to replicate the flavors of the liquor, but that kind of stuff may just give you an idea to try.

hope that helps!

Personally, it's all about experiments when it comes to mixing hookah flavors
try everything that sounds good to you

I try to think of the most...non-traditional combinations possible with what's at hand. I mean who would think of pairing blueberry with mint (blue mist) or anise with apple (double apple)...one of these days i'll stumble across something just as amazing and share it with the world!

I like to mix flavors depending on how they smoke so they compliment each other through an entire pull.
for exmp;some flavors hit you instantly on the inhale, some hit you on the exhale, some have an aftertaste.And all of them have some form of a flvor on each of those 3 parts through an entire pull off the hookah.

Also If a flavor has a downside to it like a bitter aftertaste, but does have a great taste on the inhale you'll want to mix it with something that has a great taste on the exhale and has a sweet aftertaste.

Or lets say you have a flavor that is all on the exhale no taste up front no aftertaste.
you'll want to mix it with something that has a great up front taste and an aftertaste.

This kind of mixing will give you some interesting combo's but makes for great complex and dynamic flavors that leave no stone unturned and your taste buds dancing.
