Ginger ale seems more appropriate.
I'm fascinated by all the produce markets we get shown through the eG Foodblogs -- and the one you shared today is amazing. Does it vary a lot from season to season? I do realize that winter in Sydney is not like winter here (having had the pleasure of visiting once) but your winter produce looks so impressive compared to what I see during the summer season here. Nevermind how depressing the produce is here during the winter.
Ginger ale for a galbi marinade is actually a really good idea! I'm going to try that.
Re winter - what, are you suggesting 17C isn't freezing, bone-shattering cold??
We're all walking around in thick coats and scarves and saying, "Ooh, isn't it COLD?". Hehe.
But you're right, produce doesn't actually vary that much between seasons here. Not vegetables, anyway, apart from a couple of specific things like fresh broad beans, or new season's garlic. Everything else is pretty much grown here year round. It's always warm somewhere in Australia; North Queensland, for example, stays hovering around 30C in winter.
Fruit is where the seasonality really shows..summer in Aus. is all about tropical fruit (mangoes especially), and stone fruit galore, and oh, it's a veritable feast that makes you glad to be alive. Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without trying to cool down from the heat with big platters of mangoes and cold watermelon and fat juicy cherries.
You can still get all those things in winter, but in summer it's an embarrassment of riches.
