Soju and Beer

Mixing beer and soju is a popular way to get hammered in South Korea. Soju is native to Korea and is a liquor made from rice that tastes similar to vodka but with less alcohol content. The mix of soju and beer is called somaek and is humorously thought of as a science. Many people have their own special mixing strategies to create the "best" somaek!

Last week, we went to a restaurant with some friends and upon ordering soju and beer, received these clever glasses. Want to be super happy?? Two parts soju and 8 parts beer. Want to get so drunk your eyes are rolling and you feel ill? Then 5:5 it is! These glasses were so fun to play/drink with! :)

Have you ever tried soju and beer? What did you think? Good, bad, or dangerous??
