CREATING THE PERFECT SHISHA COCKTAIL
No, we are not talking about emulsion drinks. Shisha emulsions are when you mix multiple shisha flavours or brands together in a single hookah colosseum to induce a unique taste, draw, and smell when compared to out-the-shelf packs of shisha. Why would you want to mix different flavours or brands of shisha? Just like a good emulsion libation can mask the uncongenial taste of alcohol (e.g. a Margarita, Fuzzy Heart or Screwdriver), a well- supposed-out shisha emulsion can negate the negative sensations of individual shisha flavours or brands. It’s also a great way for shisha smokers to show off their creativity, much like fine-tuning a refection style or contriving a new alcoholiccocktail.However, mixing shisha emulsions is enjoyable and easy to do, If you’re getting tired of the same old flavours.
SHISHA Emulsions BLENDING
Blending shisha emulsions involves grabbing multiple shisha flavours or brands and blending them all together precedent to packing a colosseum. Blending is a great way to make shisha emulsions out of flavours or brands that might be too strong, sweet, hustler, harsh or wet on their own. For illustration, if you’ve copped a particular shisha flavour and find it too harsh, instead of throwing it out you could always blend it with a satiny flavour to smooth out the smoking sensation. Likewise if you find a flavour to be too sour or bitter, blend it with a sweet or flowered shisha flavour to yea out the taste. When a certain shisha brand is too wet and hard to burn, you can blend it with a drier brand to absorb the supererogatory glycerine/ molasses/ sugar mushiness. Some hookah smokers yea like to blend herbal shishas like Heaven Leaf with traditional shisha tobacco brands like Al Fakher to either add or reduce the movables of nicotine. That being said, flavours can freely get lost in a compound, and you may have to play around with the composition of flavours a multitudinous times before perfecting a specific composite. Do not forget to give the shisha a trim after blending to guarantee a steady cut and compatible smoking session.
SHISHA Blends SECTIONING
Sectioning shisha blends is a little bit easier than blending since the mixing is performed directly in the hookah coliseum. For sectioning it’s elegant to go for 2-3 different flavours/ brands (although 4 can also work, albeit fiddlier). As the name suggests, sectioning involves splitting each shisha flavour/ brand into its own section of the hookah coliseum. Do this by putting the cut shisha into the coliseum one flavour/ brand at a time and working the shisha with your croquettes into the asked shape. Unlike blending, sectioning will allow the nuances of each flavour/ brand to come out at certain stages of the smoking session. This adds great variety to the coliseum, but will not mask unwanted tastes or smells like blending does. Cutting the shisha into a livery length can be a bit another time- consuming when sectioning, as you have to trim each flavour/ brand single-handedly.
SHISHA Conflations STONES
Shisha conflations aren’t only for splinter- predicated shisha, you can also mix different flavours of shisha gauze monuments too. For gauze monuments, the blending strategy works best and is easy to perform. Simply pour out the preferred quantum of each flavour onto a plate, blend the gauze monuments together, either pack your hookah colosseum. For optimal results, try mixing singular flavours first (e.g. mint gauze headstones with a fruit flavoured smother headstones) so that you are not combining too multifold flavours at once.
