Despite it being named the "worst Korean food" by foreigners, soju can be turned into several recipes that include both healthy options and selections for coffee lovers, and more. Let's find out these soju recipes here. 

What is soju?

Consumed in Korea, Japan, and China, this Korean wine that has been hailed as the national drink of the East Asian destination, soju is a colorless, clear distilled alcoholic beverage with alcoholic content that varies from approximately 16.8 percent to 53 percent volume. Many brands of soju come from South Korea.

Soju has been referred to as "burned liquor" and has origins from the Goryeo Korean kingdom of the 13th century. It is traditionally made from wheat, barley, and rice. Let's get to know the best recipes you can make with soju.

Top soju recipes 

1. Korean Yogurt Soju Cocktail

If you are a beginner drinker of soju, this yogurt cocktail may sound new to you, but this yogurt concoction is popular not just in Korea, but in Asia. It is offered in bar menus, fusing plain or fruit-flavored Asian yogurt drink, fizzy soda, and soju.

2. Soju Bomb

Soju bombs blend soju and beer together. It is the perfect drink option if you are with friends. What you will need are two shots of soju and half-a-glass of beer to make this drink.

3. Soju Latte

Half-a-glass of coffee and two shots of soju can give you Soju latte, ideal for coffee lovers out there. It is easy to make, and everyone can balance out the mixture to create the subtle bitterness for your soju. For those who do not want a creamy finish, go for the black coffee.
