    Adult Beverages For Hookah Base

    Mushrat can definitely vouch for me creativity last night: I was wanting to smoke Rose/Jasmin or Dos Flores... then started thinking... what if you added Tanqueray to the base and made Tres Flores?
  9. So far have smoked Tangiers Cooling and Tangiers Orange Soda. Both as great as they were, we quite different. I enjoyed Cooling the most, as I have more of a dark minty flavor pallet. It took a bit longer to acclimate the Cooling, but then again it wasn't 95 F and 35% humidity at that time. I really enjoy the smoke thickness of both and highly recommend Tangiers as a brand. I will definitely follow up with my further exploration of flavors.
  10. After my trip to Peru in January, I brought back one of the best sweet liquors I have ever tried: Pisco. It is a distilled sweet wine that is pretty potent at 80 proof. It definitely brought out the flavor with sweeter tasting shisha's like Vanilla or Mango. Has anyone else tried other flavors? I am sure the flavored vodkas with their diversity of flavors could make a great addition to your indulgence of the smoke vice.

  12. [quote name='mustafabey' date='23 June 2010 - 04:08 PM' timestamp='1277327286' post='472625'] Buddha recommended the middle road, that means balance.Unless you are willing to become a renunciate or enter a monastery, its very hard to lead a spiritual life in the midst of all this noise.. The middle road works well, you're not going to find enlightenment, but you may find peace. Buddha worked this out in his life, born with a silver spoon, son of king, he gave up the world and sought to renounce all comforts and subjected his body to much denial and pain, That wasn't the answer either. He realized he needed to eat, etc, live in the world. Its a great oversimplification, but simplicity is part of it. Zen is wonderful, if you can make the commitment, i rather feel zen is not a part time job. In India, tradition has you go thru four phases of life, the last of which is a retirement that stresses spirituality.It gives you time to grow, time to learn, time to enjoy, time for family, but in the last part of your life you enter the period of the spiritual quest. [/quote] I definitely agree. At this stage in my life, especially working in sales I have more stresses in my life. However the time made for meditation and exploration of my path has been fufilling. I do enjoy smoking a heavier shisha, like Tangiers, as it does help me relax and focus on the topics of discussion whether of the life of the Buddha or the balance of life in the world.
  13. [quote name='thecoalition' date='22 June 2010 - 07:41 PM' timestamp='1277253715' post='472542'] i acclimate for 8 hours upon the very first opening in a 73 degree room stirring once after 4 hours. from there on i open the shisha for 2-3 hours before smoking if it has been sealed for more than 36 hours. works everytime for me but its virginia....its like a hot ass swamp right now. [/quote] NC is the exact same way. Better to bring back an old thread than repeat the same one again and again.
  14. [quote name='thecoalition' date='22 June 2010 - 01:27 PM' timestamp='1277231242' post='472480'] fyi most religious/spiritual ceremonies utilize mind altering substances in them, so the real question is does your relationship with god get affected when you do not add in said substances. [/quote] Most western religions and institutions look down on the use of such methods. I wholly disagree with that stance, but I wanted to see how you guys felt. I love this forum as it is a very diverse crowd in terms of geographic locations as well as preferences on smoking methods (Shisha related only) and religious views
  15. During the past few years, I have shifted from a agnostic view of the world into a more Zen Buddhist style of life. I have recently slacked off in terms of meditation and achieving emptiness, but have adopted a more calm, less easily offended style of life as well as being more aware of my actions and how they affect others. I still drink beer and smoke hookah but have adopted a vegetarian diet which has not only made me feel a lot better overall physically and mentally, but has also balanced out the other vices in my life. How do you feel about the consumption of mind/mood altering substances by consenting adults in a safe and responsible environment? Do you think these can affect one's state of being in terms of spirituality? If so, is it a good effect or bad affect?
