This Korean Cocktail is made by mixing Yakult, Soju and Sprite together. Stir until it blends perfectly, and put ice on top of it. There it is, a delicious and refreshing Korean Yakult Soju cocktail with three simple ingredients.
What I love about this cocktail is that the sweetness of Yakult tones down the intense aromas and flavour of Soju, which makes it more acceptable to my sensitive stomach.
In addition, we all know that Yakult has many good bacteria for our overall digestive health, so I think it’s healthier than others.
