Almost every restaurant I’ve been to in Shanghai has had some form of limeade on the menu. The ingredients and tastes vary – some are sugary, some are tart – but they’ve all had a sense of Shanghai style to them.
What is Shanghai style you might ask? Well, apparently when it comes to limeade, it’s a lot of floating limes and a very twisted straw.
These drinks may have style, but there’s one thing they’re missing: booooze! So, to make these drinks utterly perfect, the next time I order one I’m asking for a shot of gin on the side.
