As this delightful drink gets more popular in bars, the prices go up! Though, did you know that you can easily DIY it?

All you need are:

  • 1 bottle of Soju

  • 1 or 2 bottles of Yakult (flavour of your choice)

  • 1 300ml can of Sprite

2. Melona

This cocktail is arguably the best during summer. You’ll forget all about the heat with a sip of this icy, refreshing mix. What’s best is that you can get all these ingredients from a Korean convenience store!

  • 2 shots of Soju

  • ½ a glass of Chilsung Cider

  • 1 Melona popsicle (or one of your choice, if you’re not a fan of melons)

3. Soju Lime Mojito

For all you sour lovers, all you’ve got to do is add lime or calamansi to your Soju.

  • 1 shot of Soju

  • ½ a glass of lime juice

  • Some sliced lime/calamansi for fancy garnishing

It’s also highly recommended to add a Melona popsicle to this for a sweet and tart flavour.

4. Soju Mimosa

When you can’t find or afford champagne, just replace it with Soju!

  • 1 shot of Soju

  • ⅔ of a glass of orange juice

You can even pop the orange juice into the freezer for that slushie texture.

5. Soju-sangria

If you or your kakis like your cocktails strong yet heavenly, this is the drink to try. With just grapefruit and lemon juice shaken into the Soju, you’ll have yourself an exquisite Soju-sangria.

  • 2 shots of Soju

  • ½ a glass of grapefruit and lemon juice

Just for a little extra flair and sliced fruit garnish, you can go for freshly squeezed juice instead of packaged ones.

There you have it. Take your pick from these scrummy mixes that are incredibly easy to make, and you’re well on your way to becoming a Soju cocktails pro!
