Robina just fixed up another batch of Ribena cocktail. her secret recipe is a dash of the sweet dessert strawberry wine we brought back from the Italian farm last weekend. incidentally, Ribena is not available here in Beijing! we had to specially look for the plastic bottle packaging and lug it back to Beijing. all these effort to satisfy the occasional Ribena craving. but I tell you that it's worth it especially during hot summer days coming soon.

on the subject of moonshine, Robina enjoyed a special lychee apetirif concocted by the chef at a Japanese restaurant here. We thought that they used lychees with soda and sake.

btw, lychees are in season now in Beijing. actually, they are in season in South China and shipped here. you can get super sweet lychees, the variety with super small seeds for about S$3 per kilo.
