As Shelley Yu’s approaches its one year anniversary in November, Team Marie Claire paid a visit to the Nyonya food and cocktail bar nestled along Bangsar’s Jalan Telawi where resident mixologists James Cooper and Anand Pirinyuang paired drinks to suit our personalities, and also created an exclusive drink just for us inspired by the Marie Claire woman.

THE MC GOAL DIGGER
“The Marie Claire drink is our twist on a Sidecar,” James says. Called the MC Goal Digger, the drink is inspired by Hollis Bulleit, a woman well known for her career in the bourbon industry. This drink is an embodiment of the Marie Claire woman – smart, pragmatic, stylish, and most importantly, unapologetically outspoken. “We used a bourbon with a high rye grain content in the mash bill, which is the mixture of grains that are distilled to make a bourbon. High rye content is a signature of Hollis Bulleit, as it leads to a more full flavoured and rounded flavour profile.” What is the Nyonya twist in this Shelley Yu’s cocktail? Assam boi cordial, a drop of salty saline solution to enhance the flavour, and chocolate bitters.
