Here at Hawthorne & Julep, we pride ourselves on being naturally creative and curious. With that in mind, each week we are going to brainstorm, tinker and formulate new cocktails that you can, and should, try at home.
This week’s cocktail was inspired by a dinner party over at our friends home, The Fopkins, 2 of 3 of the Feed Me KC crew. If you like food as much as you like cocktails then you should definitely check out the blog and podcast. But this wasn’t just any ol’ dinner party, it was a Korean feast. So it only made sense to us that the cocktail utilize the under-appreciated fortified wine, Soju, a Korean staple. Cheers!
1/2 oz lemon
1/2 oz simple syrup (although we used a cardamon ginger syrup)
1/2 oz Hendrick’s gin
1/2 oz Soju
1/2 oz Campari
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice and cap with a shaker tin. Shake well until cold. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
