Pomegranate Gin Cocktail

Pomegranate Gin Cocktail

As I mentioned last week, I made pomegranate syrup for this cocktail drink. With the dark concentrate syrup, the drink was ruby-red in color and you can barely see through the glass. With some of the floating pomegranate seeds, this drink would be perfect for the upcoming holiday parties. The drink was sweet and tart. It was a bit sweet from the orange juice and a bit tart from the pomegranate syrup and lemon. A great seasonal drink to impress your guests! Cheers!

Braised Pork Spare Ribs with Orange Juice


Another braised dish! Yea! I really like this one. The flavors are different and unique. The meat was braised until super tender and fell off the bones. With that sweet and savory orange sauce, every bite was incredible. Bryan and I ate more rice than normal too, because the sauce was too damn amazing!

If you can get some sweet oranges and pork spare ribs today, I urge you to make this dish. Pork spare ribs maybe a bit harder to find. Bristol Farms didn’t have them, but they said that they can order them which may take a week. I got mine from Ralph’s and I had the butcher cut it into individual ribs. Hope you will find them!

Snack: Jacob’s Club Biscuit

Jacob’s Club Biscuit is one of my favorite childhood snack in Hong Kong. It is a chocolate covered biscuit. My favorite is the orange flavor one. A crunchy biscuit is covered with a thick layer of chocolate with a hint of orange. My love for the combination of chocolate and orange probably comes from here. It is not that easy to find these biscuits in the US. I haven’t had these biscuits for a long time until two years ago. My mom brought me some from Hong Kong. They were too good, and I finished them in a week. This time, my sister brought me back some more. There is also a new flavor that I haven’t tried before. It is the black currant flavor. It tasted like a chocolate covered raisin. I like it, but I still like the orange one a lot more. Hmmm…. They are so delicious. I think I am going to get and eat one now.
