Default adding flavor in the base?

has anyone done this before?

a lot of my friends when they're smoking fruity flavors they would add coke or pepsi in the base as well as the water or sometimes even malibu. personally, i dont like it but my friends enjoy it more.

same here, i also have tried many many things, all it will do is get things messy for you, just stick with ice water, or if you really want to do some flavoring, use a non-sweet flavoring like a tea bag or lemon, but for the most part it does not help a whole lot.

Orange juice if your smoking orange tobacco is awesome, but that's the only juice that helps with flavor, that I've found.

Sangria with Orange is good too..............

But Ice and water is easiest and cheapest.

I made a vid about boosting flavor and mentioned this as a way to boost it. I personally try a half and half mix of juice and water. Sometimes i use just water and add flavoring to the water by using an extract or flavoring.(vanilla extract, mint extract, etc.).

Lol, coo.

I got a similar name to yours.

GuessWho?

Haha.

Anyway, I've tried milk before, but it lead to it bubbling up and getting in hoses up the stem. Had a great time cleaning up. Tried a little less, but it didn't really do much.

I've tried throwing mentos in it, didn't really improve on anything.

first off what is ISS... second adding things to the base is sometimes really nice, just a pain in the ass to clean. like i love af cappuccino with a little milk in the base.. i also aded a variety of fruit juices in the base.. just make sure when u put anything in ur base clean it immediantly you dont want ur base to funk up.

The only thing i have tried is adding volvic flavoured water, it does make it taste a bit better, but not worth it really

I have mango juice now in my hookah smoke and do not taste a difference. It makes the smoke a bit thicker.

I've had spiced rum in the base w/ AF Cinammon. Nice addition... My all time fav is simply ice/water/lemon wedges.

My dumb roommate has surprised our hookah sessions with all types of dumb liquids in the hookah base. Hes used gingerale, sprite, and even beer. I think its just a waste of something you could be drinkin instead. Either way I feel bad for him cuz he bought a crappy hookah and im getting my KM in the mail soon!
