Know which among Korea’s  alcoholic drinks has the longest history? That would be none other than  makgeolli, the fermented wine that looks white like milk and contains, among other things, barley and flour.

It is very inexpensive, and they say farmers would drink a little while working to regain strength.

Since it is made from  grains, it simultaneously quenches thirst and helps fight a sense of hunger. It is widely enjoyed by Koreans today, especially among the “common” people and young university students.

Different brands of Makgeolli

Typical anju (side dishes for alcoholic drinks) are pajeon and kimchi. The next time it rains, why not go with your friends to a Korean-style drinking restaurant and have makgeolli and pajeon?
