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.
Only for October, enjoy the MC Goal Digger at Shelley Yu’s for RM32++.

Personality: Minimalist, practical, introverted.
Poison: Cider or rosé. Also, does Coke Zero with a dash of lime count?
Cocktail: Roselle Spritz
Ingredients: Aperol, prosecco, hibiscus syrup, coriander, lime, soda
Review: It was a scorchingly hot day, so this was just what I needed to cool off – a refreshing citrusy punch, deepened with a touch of herbal bitterness from the Italian bitter orange apéritif. The hibiscus syrup gave it just the right amount of sweetness, while a splash of soda and a spritz of lime kept it light and bubbly. I also loved how the freshly crushed coriander added such brightness to the mix. Two words to describe the overall experience – simple and sweet.
