Makgeolli Cocktail File – Cherry Mak & Tonic




And that’s exactly what it is!  When browsing through the fresh food section of the supermarket, we noticed the first fresh cherries on the shelves.  So we thought, why not chop them up and put them in a makgeolli cocktail?  The result was a surprisingly delicious treat!  The bitter sweetness of the fresh cherries mixed so well with the sour makgeolli, and the tonic just gave it that edge.   After giving it a good pulse in the blender with some ice, a nice foamy head topped off a pretty awesome cocktail.

Got something to celebrate? Why not try our take on the Mimosa! We happened to have some champagne and orange juice in the fridge, so naturally we thought of throwing [...]

Makgeolli Cocktail File – The Makquiri

We turned our experiments towards the blended ices range of cocktails, and the first thing that came to mind was the daiquiri! For this cocktail we tried using frozen makgeolli [...]

Makgeolli Cocktail File – Apple Cider Mak

 

This week’s makgeolli cocktail is based on the idea of a long, hard day and that feeling of something cold and bubbly at the end of it. Makgeolli is regularly mixed with what is called ‘cider’ in Korea, which is really more like sprite and is non-alcoholic. This cocktail uses alcoholic apple cider as the mixer which ups the carbonation and gives it a fruity twist. The result was a light, fresh and slightly sweet beverage that was dangerously easy to knock back.


Makgeolli Cocktail File – The Berry Brunch

The next installment in our Makgeolli Cocktail experiments is something that was inspired by….dare we say it….breakfast! There are a number of fruit makgeolli cocktails available in bars these days, but we haven’t come across any using fresh fruit as yet. This cocktail came out thick and smoothie like, and the added shot of hard liquor could be further experimented with. Again the trick is to have frozen fruit on hand to get that iced chill and frothy finish.
Makgeolli Cocktail Berry Brunch

Ingredients:
1 large frozen strawberry
1 small handful frozen blueberries
1 cup of Geumjeong sanseong (금정산성) or other light, sweetish makgeolli
1/2 shot of gin


Makgeolli Cocktail File – Shandy Mak

Our second installment of the Makgeolli Cocktail Files saw us playing around with some classic beer cocktail recipes. Makgeolli is arguably more closely related to beer than wine, so we decided to see how it stands up to the ‘Shandygaff’.

Makgeolli Cocktail Shandy Mak
Ingredients
1/2 Cup of Berry Makgeolli (오미자 막걸리)
1/2 Cup of Ginger Ale
A dash of Grenadine

In a chilled glass, pour in the makgeolli then the ginger ale. Using the back of a spoon, pour the grenadine gently into the glass. It will separate nicely for a visual effect, but stir it up before drinking!
