House Slippers

House Slippers cocktail with soju, pear liqueur, and lemon

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.

Ingredients

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
