At AX 2007. Shabu-shabu and ramen. Anyone down with it? XD
This post is primarily for mr_wendell, but anyone over 21 will find it useful as well. :-)
1–2 parts makkoli – Idong Hyang-Yeon (second left in the picture below) is recommended, but if not available, you can substitute the regular Idong makkoli (leftmost). Note: For Hyang-Yeon, be sure to check the expiration date on the packaging; try and get one with at least 3 months left until its expiration date, as makkoli loses carbonation as it naturally ages.
1 part any sweet plum (maesil) soft drink; my personal favorite is Momezon, the one made by Lotte.
Mix and stir. Do not shake too much because makkoli is slightly carbonated.
Best when slightly chilled.
(Special thanks to fellow tridecadal club members who were at Fanime for the name LOL)
1 part San brand soju:
2–4 parts Powerade Mountain Blast
Mix and stir/shake.
Best at the room temperature; can be enjoyed chilled if one finds the scent of soju a bit too strong, especially at the 1:2 ratio.
Both makkoli and soju are found easily at local Korean grocery stores, with the exception of Hyang-Yeon makkoli, which can be hard to come by at times. I usually get mine at [ Hankook Market ].
