The House Slippers recipe started life as a “Lemon-Pear-Soju Martini” from famous TV chef Ming Tsai. Tsai used TY KU Soju in his recipe, which is somewhat softer and sweeter than most Korean soju brands.
We reduced the soju measure just a bit to account for the stronger flavor of standard soju brands, and to let the pear and lemon shine a little brighter. We’ve rechristened our version as House Slippers, in an homage to the soft sock-like indoor slippers found in many Korean households.
- 3 parts Soju
- ½ part Pear liqueur
- 1 wedge Lemon
Squeeze the lemon wedge into a cocktail shaker, and then discard the wedge. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass, and garnish with a wheel of lemon and/or a slice of fresh pear.
