Seoul-jito

Seoul-jito highball cocktail with mint, ginger syrup, soju, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and sparkling water

David Choi, owner of the Seoul Q restaurant in University City, Missouri, loves his soju shots with dinner – but wanted a way to introduce soju’s charms to a new audience, in the form of a refreshing, easy-drinking cocktail. Enter the Seoul-jito, Choi’s fresh, delicious highball with the flavors of mint, pomegranate, ginger, and lime.

Choi’s original recipe called for sweetened lime juice and fresh ginger juice – we’ve made it a little more accessible by flipping it to fresh lime juice and ginger syrup. The recipe also called for plain club soda, but it’s perfectly nice with a flavored sparkling water that picks up on the flavors in the drink, like lime or pomegranate.

Ingredients

Instructions

In a shaker, muddle the mint with the ginger syrup. Add the remaining ingredients (except the sparkling water) and ice, and shake well. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with sparkling water. Garnish with a fresh spring or mind and/or a lime twist.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
