"This cocktail is inspired by my life journey to Shanghai. Shanghai and my hometown Taiwan are completely different.
"Even in Shanghai the place I live and work is different. I live in old town, which is full of historical buildings: however, on my daily walk to work, I enjoy the change immediately to a modern commercial scene.
