My First Taste of Makgeolli Rice Wine
I was looking through the drink selection at the Asiana lounge in Incheon tonight when I randomly picked this one. I can't read Korean, so I wasn't sure what it was, but with the graphics on the front and the white color of the fluid, I figured it was something like a sweet barley drink.
It was only after I tasted it did I realize that it was alcoholic; the staff later explained to me that it was a rice wine. It wasn't very strong and was quite different from soju (and it isn't really anything that I'll reach for again), but it was interesting to try.
Digested at 6:53 PM
