Soju, a Korean liquor, is gaining popularity in the United States. Yakult, a Japanese fermented milk drink, is often used to make soju. When Soju with Yakult are combined, they make a very interesting and delicious mixture. This combination has become popular in the United States because it is not only less expensive. Compared to buying individual glasses, it also makes the soju easier to drink. So in this blog, we will talk about this interesting combination. Hope you enjoy it!

What Does Soju With Yakult Taste Like?

Yakult and Soju have a delightful citrus flavor profile that is light and somewhat creamy in texture. Overall, the beverage has a strong lemon flavor and is rather refreshing.

It’s customary to combine Soju with cultured milk; adding Yakult to this alcoholic beverage gives it a new flavor depth. Yakult is well known for its mouthwatering fusion of smooth citrus and vanilla flavors. This probiotic beverage cuts through the greasiness and unpleasant aftertaste of soju with its tart and lemony flavor. Additionally, it gives the dish a rich, creamy texture that complements the spicy blast of the soju.

If you prefer an easy-to-drink diluted beverage, we recommend adding a carbonated soda of your choice, like 7up or Sprite. The result is a surprisingly sweet and aromatic flavor that hides the sharp notes of Soju well.

Which Soju Flavor Is Best With Yakult?

There are many different flavors of soju available on the market, such as green grape, strawberry, blueberry, melon, and grapefruit,…so it can be hard to choose the best to combine with Yakult.

But in my opinion, given that it is less bitter than the other soju flavors, “Grapefruit” pairs best with Yakult. Furthermore, if you want a light cocktail, its sweet flavor goes nicely with Yakult!

Other well-liked flavors for a Soju cocktail include peach, blueberry, and pomegranate. You should give it a try!
