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++.

Poison/usual drink: Coffee, rose syrup, Milo
Mocktail: KLCC (a twist on Shelley Yu’s classically alcoholic version)
Ingredients: Raspberries, grenadine, kaffir lime, lemon, egg white, soda
Review: I told James I’m not a fan of citrus flavours such as lemon, limes or oranges. He managed to make a mocktail to satisfy my taste buds perfectly. The sweetness and sourness of the raspberries were super refreshing which reminded me of summer. I love the smell of kaffir lime, it added a refreshing touch to the mocktail. The egg white created a flavorful creamy foam and texture to the drink, making it the perfect go-to drink for ladies nights – and you get to munch on raspberries. Yum!
