If you ask us, yogurt is pretty awesome on its own. However, many South Koreans think this tangy treat is better with a dose of Sprite...and soju! The result is one doozy of a sweet-and-sour dessert you’ve got to try at your next party.
To make this Seoul sweet even smoother, don’t forget to add a dropperful of Tribe’s CBD oil. You’ll be amazed how just a pinch of our high-quality hemp extract can keep you calm.
CBD Soju Yogurt Cocktail
Although soju is a big deal in many Asian nations, it’s still not super well known in America. For those who aren’t aware, soju is a grain-based spirit that’s usually made with rice. In terms of taste, most people describe soju as a slightly “softer” version of vodka. So, if you’re having trouble finding soju in your liquor store, Smirnoff may be your best substitute.
As for what yogurt to use in this recipe, most Koreans prefer fruit-forward flavors like blueberry or mango. However, please keep in mind Asian yogurts tend to be runnier than standard American yogurt. Thankfully, most big-name yogurt brands are now making “liquidy” yogurt drinks that are awesome for this drink. You could also use a container of kefir if you don’t mind extra tartness.
• 2 oz soju
• 3 oz fruit-flavored yogurt
• Citrus-flavored soda, to top
• 1 dropperful Tribe CBD oil
• Pour soju and yogurt into a cocktail shaker
• Add a few ice cubes and shake for a few seconds
• Strain into a pre-chilled rocks glass
• Top with lemon-lime soda and Tribe CBD oil
If you had to pick a nation with high alcohol consumption, which would you choose? While your answer may vary, we’re pretty sure you’d never think to include South Korea. Interestingly, according to recent studies, South Koreans drink more spirits than Russians!
Indeed, a report published by Quartz found South Koreans drank roughly 13.7 shots per week. By comparison, Russians downed barely half that amount at 6.3. In case you were wondering, American adults drink about three shots per week in this survey.
Also, according to the World Health Organization, South Korea consumes the second-highest amount of total alcohol at 14.4 liters per year. The worst offender on this list was Lithuania, with a score of about 15 liters.
Be sure to impress your friends with this bit of trivia as you’re mixing your sweet soju shot!
