Last summer/early fall here in South Korea a new alcoholic soft drink / alco-pop entered the market called Brother # Soda (부라더 # 소다). It’s basically a mixture of Soda and White Wine (or maybe soju it’s not clear). Once that fad started to die down they released a limited edition Strawberry Flavored version. Here are our brief thoughts;
Thoughts: Firstly like the original this strawberry version is tasty and sweet, simply a strawberry soda. Secondly it’s pretty cheap ₩1,500 (Supermarket) or ₩3,000 to ₩5,000 in Bars and Restaurants (although few sale it). Finally the alcoholic content is just 3% so it’s not going to put you under the table quickly. On the negative side, it’s soda with a tiny alcohol, it would be cheaper to buy a bottle of soda you love and a bottle soju a mix.
If you don’t like beer, soju, makkoli but still want to drink without breaking the bank this is a really good option. Also if you don’t want to drink a lot, however it’s nothing amazing and maybe like the original relegated to the corner of a supermarket shelf pretty soon.
