Pina colada cocktails with a twist

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 14, 2012

It was difficult to finish that huge pineapple we bought a couple of weeks ago. Even though it only cost $2.50AUD for the whole thing, I didn’t want to waste such a good ingredient so I decided to make pina coladas with it. In the end I didn’t really use up all that much of [...]


Hot Room Cocktail – give me something thirst quenching!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 14, 2012

I know I said I was going to try writing one post a day. That was part of my 2012 New Years resolution. Just 2 weeks after New Years, I’ve already missed 2 days and will be missing another one tomorrow. Feeling a bit ashamed at my lack of endurance, I hope you can forgive [...]


Acha-cognac with honey

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 8, 2012

  I can’t believe how fast the days are flying. It’s already more than one week into the new year and I feel like I haven’t done a thing! I set myself a news years resolution to post everyday and I’m struggling with a friend’s hens and wedding as well as many other things that [...]


Watermelon Mojito, I love summer!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 5, 2012

  Summer is really the season for eating refreshing, beautiful fruits. They come in a myriad of colours, my favourite being red. Red is the colour of strawberries, of raspberries and of course, of watermelons. Red is also a festive colour, perfect for Christmas, New Years, the up coming Chinese New Year and even Valentines [...]


Achamango Paradise, perfect cocktail for the hot weather

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 2, 2012

  It’s getting so hot I feel like I’m going to melt. I don’t have a proper garage so the car just sits in the driveway, soaking up every bit of the heat. On over 30 degree days like this, all I feel like doing is to sit in a well air-conditioned room and drinking [...]


Ichigo Illusion – a strong yet refreshing cocktail

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 26, 2011

I’m falling in love with cocktails. I know it’s a strange occurrence when I can’t even drink more than half a standard drink but it’s true. It’s the vibrant colours and the refreshing ingredients (not to mention sometimes it’s actually quite delicious) that has me hooked. It doesn’t help when Yuye loves making cocktails and [...]


Pimm’s Cup with a gingery twist & Merry Christmas!!

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 24, 2011

  I’ve never really celebrated Christmas with my family. I do remember having a Christmas tree when I was very young but the memories of celebrations are a blur. Even if we celebrated, I’m sure it was Chinese style instead of the usual Christmas fare.     After my parents became busy with work, mum [...]
