Soju is a Korean distilled beverage. It’s a mild spirit with a flavor profile between sake and vodka. Drinking is a big part of socializing and doing business in Korea. It’s a common sight to see people drinking at vendor stalls on the street even during the weekdays. Koreans usually eat ‘drinking snacks’ (called an-ju) when drinking alcoholic beverage. Whenever my mom visits, she makes sure there is an-ju whenever Mr. Lunch sips even just a little beer^^
Cool down this summer with this refreshing soju cocktail.
