Firstly, for Tentomon’s “What’s Up?” Cassis Oolong Drink, as I couldn’t find Cassis syrup in the shops (or any blackcurrent syrup for that matter), so I settled on blackcurrent jam squished and mixed up. For the oolong tea I used T2’s loose leaf Grand China Oolong Tea.
The results were honestly surprising; the bitterness of both the blackcurrents and the oolong tea went really well together and that added sweetness from the blackcurrents made it almost like a really nice sweet ice tea. Honestly I think I’d make this again. It was really rather nice. It could’ve been different with the syrup but I thought this was ‘close enough’ (as with the majority of my recreations).

Next up, we have Palmon’s Fluttery Flower Drink. Syrups are apparently really hard to find in usual supermarkets here so I didn’t use syrup in this one so I used the closest thing I had to green syrup – Midori. I used lemonade as the ‘clear soda’ as I know that Midori and lemoande go well together, and, of course, I topped it with Strawberry icecream and some chocolate powder. This was really, really nice and it was a nice snack.
I’m having the day off today because of a minor surgical procedure which will mean I will have a numb arm for today so I’m considering trying out Piyomon’s Sweet-Strawberry Drink later on today if I have time!
Let me know if there are any particular menu items I should try next (assuming I have the ability and the ingredients)
Stay tuned I guess!
