While traveling and enjoying Korean bar-life, you find that all bars and local night establishments are filled to the brim with things you have seen everywhere else like Jack Daniels and Jagermeister.
However, you may spy a little green bottle with Korean writing on it and you may ask, "what is that?" Well, it's called Soju, my friends or 소주 for the Hangil inclined (Korean Language).
Soju is a spirit primarily made from rice, barley, potatoes or tapioca and has an average alcohol content of 20% ABV however there are some brands of Andong Soju that are upward of 45% ABV.
None the less, either brand you choose will get the job done. Soju has a taste very similar to vodka but it is slightly sweeter and easier to consume by itself.
It also mixes quite well with beer, cider, and energy drinks. Also, Soju has been around since the 13th century and remains quite popular; so have no worries that its going anywhere anytime soon.
So when you get the chance come on down to the Republic of South Korea and seek out this green bottle for a shot of deliciousness.
