Remember a couple of months ago when I stumbled upon the idea for Kahlua soju? Well, I kind of suprised myself with the success of that one, and I guess I didn’t stand alone. Thanks to this, I was given the opportunity to include a story in this month’s Groove Magazine, a publication geared towards the expat community in Korea.
Starting with the Kahlua, I looked to friends for inspiration and came up with a slew of five cocktails that reinvent the spirit. From the soju strawberry lemonade to the fire-roasted chile mango martini, there’s something for everyone. For those to whom soju conjures up images of a karaoke rendition of “Livin’ La Vida Loca” (complete with valiant shimmy), it will wash away your pain. For those new upon the bandwagon, hop aboard, fasten your seatbelt, and don’t expect to accomplish anything tomorrow. Bottoms up!
