Fresh soju is the original flavorless soju and also the strongest one on this list. It is reminiscent of the traditional vodka but with less alcohol percentage. Since this is the flavorless soju variant, you can pair this with any cocktail recipe for a refreshing soju drinking experience. We recommend the Jinro Chamisul Fresh Soju, which has a 17.8% alcoholic percentage if you’re looking for a good and strong bottle of soju to chill after a long day. Make sure to pair it with your favorite pulutan, and drink responsibly!

Soju Cocktail Idea: Create the popular Melona-Ju when you pair one Melona ice cream popsicle stick with the fresh soju and Sprite. Simply pour a shot of soju, ice, and half a cup of Sprite. Then, use your Melona popsicle to stir until it blends with the drink!

Blueberry Soju Flavor
