Somaek, manufacturing bomb cocktails a la Korean

by KnowingKorea

Korean drinkers enjoy bomb cocktails. Beer and whisky bomb has a longer history, but more people today enjoy beer and soju bomb, called ‘so-maek.’ There’s no nickname for whisky bomb cocktail. In many company dinners, a line of so-maek bombs are ‘manufactured’ for the first toast, (or maybe the second as well) and the diners are expected to finish the bombs at once.
