We're not the only people singing the praises of this low-cal alternative to vodka that is perfect for summer cocktails.
Japan's best kept secret is out and Maxim has taken notice.
TY KU Soju is the men's magazine's #1 choice to "build a better martini", writing:
#1. Make it hurt less
HOW: USE SOJU AS A BASE
Soju is a Korean spirit made from high-starch grains and vegetables—rice, sweet potatoes, even carrots. Barley-based soju in particular has a flavor profile similar to vodka’s, which makes it an easy substitute in plenty of cocktails. The benefits: It’s lower in alcohol and sugar—the real hangover-maker. That means you can pound several more than usual before you’re on the floor. And it might even reduce that spare tire to a donut.
TRY: TY KU SOJU
Smooth, easy, and a bit sweet, it’s the Justin Timberlake of spirits. $25, trytyku.com.
