Soju-Juice Cocktail

Comments
How’s this for a signature cocktail? A popular sushi restaurant in LA serves a similar cocktail to this and I LOVE it!  I finally decided to recreate them so I can serve something different at parties. It’s perfect for any event and versatile in terms of what liquor and juice you can to use. The best part is that you can do all of the preparing before your event, so the day of the party you’ll only have two steps: Drop an ice ball into a cup and add some Soju! So easy ; ) The juice ball melts gradually adding a delicious flavor into the Soju. Soju is a Korean liquor similar in taste to vodka… a little lighter and sweeter than vodka, and it reminds me of Sake a bit. You can buy it at most liquor stores, such as Bevmo. I got my ice ball molds from here and they’re simply amazing for juice or even water. Read below for the how-to : ) ENJOY!!

 

Soju-Juice Cocktail
Directions:
To make the ice balls, I used fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and orange juice. I also made a pomegranate one using natural pomegranate juice from the store. You can use any juice you want… fresh or not. Then you freeze the balls overnight and pour some Soju on top when you make the drink! It’s so simple. The ice ball has a small hole at the top so you can fill it with juice. Quick Tip: Leave some room because the juice expands as it freezes. If you want to serve them at a party start early in the week and make several different flavors and then you can place them on a bucket of ice for people to grab.

    Loves it! I can’t wait to show this to my husband. He recently received several bottles of Soju as gifts from Korean members at his tennis club and now I can use this fun idea to share it with our friends at our next gathering!

    I have a bottle of Soju that my brother gave to me after his tour of duty in Korea. I should use it to make these!

    Your photos help make this drink seem appealing, they’re very pretty. What size glass (and brand if you know) did you use in the photo? They seem perfect the perfect size. (I saw your recipe posted on Pinterest.)
