Bärenjäger: A Shot of Summer

Summer in Seoul. 'Tis the season for afternoons spent poolside, road trips to Busan and rooftop parties. While some will be reaching for Cass and soju mixers to stock their social gatherings, other expats will be happy to know that there's a new liqueur on the Seoul spirits scene that is perfect for cooling down (and getting tipsy) during the hottest time of the year.

Food and Dranks: The Good, The Bad, and The 무료

Yet another eventful weekend has passed, and part of me is glad that it’s getting a bit colder so that I (might) have an excuse to stay in. When you emerge from a basement karaoke and the daylight that is 7am hits your eyes, all you can do is send a squinty look to your bros and subtly nod; yeah, I think we just survived that.

Food and Dranks – Endless Sides

CAM00029

So yeah guys, it’s a Sunday mornin’, rain is fallin’, and I am in an absolute daze. The past two days have been a marathon. From 6am on Friday morning to 4am today I had three hours of sleep. Whaaaaaat. And let me tell you, it was the most absurd 48 hours of my life yet.

Let’s rewind a bit to see what went down: I got a text from one of my good friends from EPIK on an unassuming Friday night. I had finished teaching classes for the day, and she invited me to a late dinner with a Korean “Wine Club.” I looked from the text on my phone to my pajamas…looked back at the text and told myself “what the hell, let’s do the damn thing tonight.”


Food and Dranks – The Appetizer Round

Hey everyone, went out successfully last Friday, and effectively lost my voice! T__T Stayed in recouping from it for teaching on Monday, and I did a decent job of it by drinking honey citron tea.

Friday night was a long night, and I’m sure if you stay in Daegu you’ll develop a feel for all the hotspots. I will occasionally write about the food and dranks (alcoholic things) here, but for now let’s start with my first trip out: “the appetizers.”


Sweetened Condensed Soy Milk

It has been a while since I published a post since I am now back in America.  I am excited to share my sweetened condensed soy milk recipe.  It can be used in any recipe in place of the canned/bottled condensed milk such as my Thai Iced Tea recipe or even a tres leches cake!  You can control the sweetness, which is what I really appreciate about making my own.  I hope you give it a try :-)

Servings: makes about 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:


Iced Coffee-Tea

I first saw this idea of coffee-tea in Hong Kong.  Talk about a pick-me-up!  It’s actually very refreshing and delicious.  This simple recipe uses only 3 ingredients to create a cool and creamy low-calorie coffee treat.

-sweet soy milk or almond milk (optional)

Directions

1) Steep the tea bag in the hot water for 3-5 minutes.

2) Add about 2-3 tablespoons of the hot tea to the coffee mix in a mug.  This will dissolve the coffee.


Korean Soy Milk Review

Since living in Korea,  I have switched to drinking soy milk.  I didn’t ever love the taste of milk, but after the funky smell and price of Korean milk, I opted to try something new.  Below is a list of several Korean soy milk brands I have tried and my brief review of each from my favorite to least favorite.  Soy milk in Korean is called  ’duyu’ (두유).
