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.

Poison: Whiskey neat, mojitos, and martinis
Cocktail: Mangga Royale
Ingredients: Rum, prosecco, mango, mint, lime, aromatic bitters
Review: I’m more of a whiskey neat girl but at times I do love myself something minty like a mojito or the occasional fruity martinis. The drink made for me had a bit of everything; from the mint leaves to the fruitiness I love: mango puree, mango syrup and of course nothing is complete without a bit of spirit. I’d have preferred whiskey but it was a nice mix, and I enjoyed it. More rum next time?
