What's the best liquid to put in a base?

Question

Me and pineapple daddy have had many sessions using different things in the base, beer, milk, juice, hard alcohol, etc, so I'm curious what people use besides water

HAHAHAHAHA...

Oh man, I'm sorry. This very subject is the reason I got into hot water in another forum. Somebody asked this and immediately everybody jumped on the guy, making fun of him, calling him a noob essentially for asking such a "silly question". Because hookah "purists" or snobs only smoke blackleaf with room-temperature water, and anybody who likes it any other way has an undeveloped palate and can't truly appreciate hookah.

Dead serious. So I stuck up for the guy and said that if it weren't for forward-thinking and innovative new ways of doing things, hookah (much less society) wouldn't have progressed as far as it has. And of course, logic didn't actually strike them as something to be obtained.

Either way, I'll tell ya what I told that guy....

I love to put some Cran-Grape juice in to the base and mix up some AF Double Apple and AF White Grape up top. It is smack-yo-mamma sweet and is a nice dessert hookah. I've also had the opportunity to smoke Tangiers New Lime, Tangiers Green Apple Candy, and Starbuzz Pineapple mix with a Green Amp in the base, and that was surprisingly good. I believe that, when paired well with shisha, drinks can definitely be a great way to enhance the flavor.

Havana I have to laugh because, if people on a forum tried to make fun of me, I'd start clowning on them back, but yeah, we like trying new things

I won't go so far as to say they don't know anything, but I will say their unacceptance of other ways of doing things certainly creates a brick wall that won't get them very far.

In the lounge, we had a thing called an Ultimate Hookah, and it was basically a Double Bowl packed with whatever mix, a couple herbal shots up top, and two drinks in the base. It was pretty customary to always use Mountain Dew Voltage as one of those two drinks, because it goes well with a lot of things... the other drink was usually a Gatorade of some sort.

I've also used Root Beer in the base when smoking Tangiers Vanilla... it definitely had a very Old Timey taste to it. Not too shabby.
