Five Pawns

By Alexandra D’Ambrosio

The exciting news at Five Pawns is that they have developed a new line of juice: the Mixology Edition. Each of these liquids is based on flavors of mixed alcoholic drinks, so they should taste familiar but unique at the same time. This Five Pawns review will look at those, as well as flavors you already love.

Five Pawns not only makes their juice in California but also sources ingredients from the state. Their Signature vapor juice is made in small batches of about 160 bottles at a time, and although it sells out quickly, can be found on several sites apart from their homepage. 30ml bottles sell for $27.50, contain a 50/50 ratio of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, and come in 0, 6, 12, 18, and 24mg of nicotine.

Grandmaster is their peanut butter, banana, and caramel variety. Absolute Pin features Irish Cream, cinnamon, and Absinthe. Queenside floods your taste buds with Blood Orange and French Vanilla. Apple and pie crust, caramel, vanilla ice cream, and unsweetened whipped cream create the dessert creation known as Gambit. Bowden’s Mate blends mint, chocolate, and French Vanilla.

Coming Soon

Five Pawns will soon release their Mixology Edition juices, 5 of them. Lucena combines spiced rum, white peach, fruit cobbler, hazelnut, and savory reduction sauce. It’s a complicated blend you will have to try several times to come to grips with.
