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.

Cocktail: Pandan Express
Ingredients: Gin, pandan essence, fresh coconut milk, lemon, lime, egg white
Review: When Anand whipped up a drink he called the Pandan Express, I wasn’t averse, but curious – I expected a fruitier, zestier cocktail. To finish it off, he topped it with nutmeg shavings, which lent the final concoction a subtle warm, spicy aroma. Simply put: This is kuih seri muka in a glass. The fresh coconut milk and egg white gave it a creamy, smoothie-like texture. It’s the kind of drink you cosy up to on a chilly night, the perfect Malaysian hygge drink.
