Yogurt soju can be enjoyed either straight or mixed into cocktails, with its traditional method being pouring it from a bottle into a glass, but some people like adding yogurt for an additional refreshing kick by mixing equal parts in a cocktail shaker with ice. This creates an enjoyable treat that’s sweet yet refreshing – you could even garnish yours with an apple slice for added flair!
Another delicious way to enjoy yogurt soju is combining it with soda, similar to a caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brazil. To create such a beverage, muddle three cucumber slices in a cocktail shaker along with 2 oz soju and.75 oz ginger liqueur before shaking well in a cocktail shaker with 2 oz soju and.75 oz ginger liqueur before adding ice and serving in a martini glass.
Yogurt soju can also be combined with carbonated beverages like Sprite or 7Up for an invigorating, refreshing drink that is popularly served in American K-towns restaurants and karaoke bars.

Soju is a clear and colorless distilled liquor originating in Korea that can be enjoyed either straight or mixed into cocktails as an aperitif before meals. Made from fermented rice with barley, wheat or sweet potato components and with an ABV between 15%-50%; Soju often compares favorably to vodka but differs due to lower ABV and cleaner flavor profile.
Fermented soju is treated with enzymes to prevent the formation of lactic acid, creating its smooth, neutral flavor. For an alternative to make yogurt soju you’ll need Yakult, soju and lime soda.
At most Korean markets and online, you can easily find soju. It comes packaged in bottles with tin lids and typically has an ABV between 15-50%; my personal favorite is Jinro original or fresh soju with 24% ABV; this makes for the ideal solution when creating soju cocktails since mixing with yakult or lime soda will reduce overall alcohol levels.
Use either a cocktail shaker or old jam jar with a lid to combine soju and Yakult, stirring until chilled and ingredients fully combined. Pour into highball glasses for best results, garnishing each one with frozen Yogurt chips for aesthetic purposes and extra taste!
If you don’t have Yakult on hand, try substituting strawberry-flavored soju like Calpico for consistency’s sake. Be cautious not to overdo the amount of strawberry juice as too much can obliterate its unique taste.
If you prefer making this cocktail as a mocktail, simply omit the soju and replace with more soda or non-alcoholic sparkling water – it will still be deliciously refreshing on a hot summer day!
Soju, which originated in Korea, is a clear, distilled spirit known for its versatility and accessibility worldwide. Although technically classified as a form of rice liquor, soju is typically made using various grains such as wheat and barley to achieve consistency and quality. Enjoyed both on its own or as part of various cocktails worldwide, soju must be stored properly to preserve its unique flavors while prolonging shelf life; to do this effectively check expiration dates, store soju in cool and dark locations, consume any opened bottles within an acceptable timeframe all contribute to fresh soju.
Soju can withstand temperatures as low as 2 degrees, yet storing it in the freezer could alter its taste and consistency, potentially changing its taste over time. Therefore, for optimal soju storage conditions it should be stored in a cool dark location like a pantry cupboard or temperature-controlled wine fridge; direct sunlight can degrade soju over time and should also be avoided to preserve its quality.
One of the most beloved variations on soju is yogurt soju, an irresistibly refreshing cocktail made by mixing soju with probiotic drinks such as Yakult or other brands of probiotic drinks such as Restore. This combination creates an irresistibly refreshing beverage sure to please guests at parties or dinners alike – plus its recipe can usually be found easily at most grocery stores!
To prepare a soju and yogurt drink blend, simply combine both in a stainless steel shaker filled with ice and shake well, strain into glasses, and garnish with lime wedges before serving. For larger groups, prepare this mixture in advance by storing in a pitcher in the refrigerator.
For a fruitier twist, this cocktail can also be made using flavored soju. Chum Churum varieties contain lemon for an acidic and tart bite; others come with orange or peach flavors to give an indulgently creamy and fruity drink.
