Three Great Shisha Mixes for Fall
The leaves are changing colors, It’s getting colder, and the closer we get the winter the more those mint-flavors start to feel out of place. So, to remedy this, here are three mixes that go great with the cool fall weather.
Classic Apple Cider
Classic Apple Cider mimics, almost to perfection, the aroma and taste of fresh home made apple cider. Even the subtle aroma produced by the hookah smoke will have people thinking someone is brewing up something special.
Start with a strong Al Fakher Cinnamon base of about 60%, then add just 20% Al Fakher Apple (Do not use Two Apples flavor, or Bahraini Golden Apple because the Anis flavoring will throw off the whole mix dramatically), finally finish with the final 20% with a clove flavor. I find that Social Smoke’s clove works perfectly, but you will have varying levels of success with other brands of Clove as well.
Mix up the flavors with your fingers and pack your bowl as you ordinarily would. Enjoy the great fall flavor.
Thanksgiving Citrus Cider #1
We mimic this flavor in hookah tobacco by mixing 40% Al Fakher Cinnamon with an equal part Al Fakher or Nakhla Orange, then finish the final 20% with a Clove flavor. Again, Social Smoke’s Clove works perfectly in this mix, but other brands may work as well.
Thanksgiving Citrus Cider #2
Use 50% Al Fakher Cinnamon, 30% Al Fakher Lemon (Al Fakher’s lemon is tart-citrus and is generally more realistic than Nakhla’s lemon flavor). Other lemon flavors may work, but the key will be to select a lemon flavor that is tart, rather than sweet. Avoid ‘Lemondrop’ and ‘Lemonade’ flavors. Finally, add 20% clove flavor and you’re finished. Just mix it up with your fingers as you usually would, and enjoy!
