Chamisul Fresh Soju

A Korean spirit typically made from rice. The Chamisul Fresh provides a smooth, slightly sweet base. 2 oz is just right to get the party started without sending anyone overboard. Skip it, and you're no longer sailing on the Soju seas.

Fresh Lime Juice

Provides zesty acidity, balancing sweetness and adding brightness. Without it, the cocktail would be as dull as a lightbulb at the end of its life. Lime juice is like the spark that lights the firework.

Simple Syrup

Sweetness to balance the acidity. The 0.5 oz measurement isn't a guessing game; it's the golden ratio for harmony in a glass. Too much syrup and you'll be lost in sugar rush, too little and you might as well be sucking on a lime itself.

Club Soda

It's the life of the party—2 oz gives it that effervescent swagger. If you forget the club soda, prepare for a flat event that even your bubbly personality can't salvage.

Fresh Fruit

Fresh berries add a pop of sweetness and colour, making the drink as pretty as a picture. Berries lead the flavor parade, and without them, you'll be left with a bland brigade.

It's the cool cat that keeps things chill. No ice means a lukewarm handshake of a drink. Always better to be cool than a room-temperature wallflower.

Mary Mitkina

Mint Leaves

The garnish that whispers a breezy 'hello' to your senses before you sip. It's like a green flag that says 'ready, set, refresh!' Forget the mint, and it's a race without a start.
