As my faithful readers know, I’m addicted to all things Korean.
Korean Drink Soju at a Liquor Store in the U.S.
I love Korean Movies.
I’m so addicted to Korean TV programs that I’ll even stoop to watching romantic soaps on Viki.com.
The sight of those fair-skinned, tiny-titted, slim Korean babes saying Komasmita (thank you) send me into paroxysms of sexstasy.
As anyone who has watched Korean movies or TV series knows, Korean men and women keep drinking Soju all the time.
So this evening I hauled myself to an Indian Tibetan liquor store on the East Coast and got a 750-ml bottle of Soju.
In the movies, Koreans usually drink Soju from a smaller bottle. But being American, I super-sized my purchase to a large bottle!
Say what you will but a Tibetan liquor store fella is far friendlier and infinitely more knowledgeable than the average Gujju Patel liquor store owner in the U.S.
Soju is a hard liquor native to Korea. The good folks at Wiki say traditional Soju is made from rice, wheat, and barley.
But my Soju bottle says it’s made from grain neutral spirits, sugar and citric acid.
What good is Soju without some spicy Indian sides, right?
So I got myself some Spinach Gota (a Pakoda-like North Indian snack) and Bisi Bele Bath (a spicy South Indian rice treat).
Great combination, kiddo.
Soju – Nice Drink
Apparently, Soju is best drunk chilled and neat (or on the rocks).
Soju does not smell as ‘bad’ as other hard alcoholic drinks.
The Soju brand I acquired was Jinro, which is supposedly the world’s bestselling Soju and contains 24% alcohol.
It goes in smoothly.
Doesn’t have any of the unpleasant taste of whiskey, vodka, rum, brandy or even gin.
The label on the back of my Soju bottle says the drink goes well with Korean spicy food and BBQ meats. Since I don’t have any Korean restaurants nearby, I’ll stick to my favorite Indian Gota and Bise Bele Bath.
I’ve already imbibed 100-ml of Soju and intend to finish much of the bottle tonight.
Now if you schmucks will excuse me, I intend to get back anon to my Soju and the Korean romantic soap Marry Him If You Dare that I’ve paused on my 27-inch Mac!
Have any of you guys tried Soju?
During my bschool days, we used to hang out at this Korean guy’s house who loved to play host. Around 3ish at night is when the party starts getting wild and Soju flows freely.
Surprisingly, his wifey used to down anywhere between 8-12 shots and still was the most sober person in the group.
One interesting thing I noticed was that the most of the Koreans and the Japanese never stay back once they graduate. They always head back home unlike the Indians and the Chinese..
1. One reason Koreans stay sober even after downing multiple shots is because they drink Soju in those tiny cups (that you see in movies and TV series).
2. One possible reason for Koreans to go back home in your days is that Korea and Japan had a strong private sector (money) which India lacked until fairly recently.
This might seem lil awkward to you as well (jeez under comments-methinks)..nevertheless as a fan of urs sarcasms and novelty, i need ur take on some most widely discussed rather odd-unanswered topics the whole world is divided over! and i’m flagging off with catfights:-)
Lion Vs Tiger
Edison Vs Tesla
F1 Vs WRC
Ferrari Vs Lamborghini
Paul T anderson Vs Coen brothers
Jobs Vs Gates
wonder i am doing this instead of…??!!! 🙁 🙁 (:-C
I’m currently preoccupied with weightier subjects:
Ash – A Cup or Banian?
Rajnikanth – Marathi, Kannadiga, Tamil or Alien?
Narendra Modi – Mephistopheles or Messiah?
Manmohan Singh – Mouse or Poodle?
Priyamani – Man or Woman?
Rahul Gandhi – Idiot or Blithering Idiot?
Ah! Been missing good old SI for a while 🙂
Have you tried Soju?
Am tempted to get another bottle tonight! 😉
I haven’t tried it yet. I will probably give it a shot this Thanks Giving.
How about this combo: Soju, Chicken 65 followed by “Dakshin Express” Dum Biryani.
I got to admit, that biryani is quite addictive.
Ah, I’m drooling at the mere thought of the combination!
Thanks for introducing Soju.
I will try tonight and see where it takes.
By the way do you know that Korean woman got tighter pu*** than anyone?
Any experience. lol
Alas, my Korean “sexperiences” are all virtual!
BTW, the average Gujju liquor store/Sam’s Club will not stock Soju.
You will have to visit a big liquor store to get Soju or other esoteric drinks here.
I have read enough of it. As it is around 20% alcohol, it goes well inside the mouth gently as diluted liqour. so people tend to drink more. Thanks. It is an eye opener that how Soju affects liver. OMG. To understand this you do not need college level Biology and Pharmacy.
Just read before making your liver fry.
Moderation in life is not a sin. Excess is!
You can develop obesity and suffer from its effects by gorging on too much Dum Biryani or Double Ka Meetha! 😉
A moderate appetite in all respects is key to a happy and healthy life.
