Soju. The national drink of Korea.
I think it’s one of the biggest selling spirits in the world. The Thirsty Traveler said something akin to that.
I had mentioned before that I had discovered some great soju cocktails at Indio. Since then, I have successfully attempted to recreate them at home, particularly the yogurt soju cocktail.
It is built like a highball, meaning that the ingredients are poured directly into the glass in a certain order with no stirring or shaking.
1 shot of Soju
Fill glass 2/3 full with Drinkable Plain Yogurt
Top with Lemon Lime Soda (Sprite, Chilsung Cider, 7-Up)
I have always had it without ice, but I’m sure ice is a welcome option on a hot day. It’s a very refreshing drink and not as high in alcohol as other highballs. This means you can drink a lot of these and not get dehydrated while having your summer BBQs.
