The Hawaii Korean Chamber of Commerce is under new leadership, and hosting its first event, Taste of Soju and Makoli, from 5-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at the Japanese Cultural Center’s Manoa Grand Ballroom.
Guests will be treated to tastes of two of Korea’s most popular alcoholic beverages – soju and makoli. K-drama fans will recognize soju’s prominently featured green bottles and will be able to sample various cocktails made with the nation’s favorite beverage. Those more adventurous will be able to sample makoli, another popular Korean alcohol made from fermented rice. Of course no Korean drinking experience would be complete without food. Heavy pupu will be served along with all the drinks.
There also will be entertainment and prize giveaways, as well as a fundraiser for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Guests will also be given discounted rates from EcoCab after the event.
Tickets are $30 for Hawaii Korean Chamber of Commerce members and $35 for non-members.
