Makgeolli Cocktail File – The Banana Makeoccinno

Introducing….the Makgeolli Cocktail Files!!

We love experimenting with all the different ways to enjoy makgeolli, so each week we are going to come up with a mak cocktail experiment and share our…ehem…research 🙂

The idea for this cocktail came out of nowhere last year, and we were really surprised at how great it turned out. So well in fact, that we have made it many times since! The trick is to freeze the banana, and have really strong coffee on hand.

Banana Makeoccino

1 Frozen banana
1 Cup of Deodeok Makgeolli (or any other store mak available)
3 Tbs of strong coffee

Cut up the frozen banana and put in the blender with a cup of the chosen makgeolli. Chill the coffee (the stronger brewed the better), and add to the mixture. Blend it all together until you get the frothy top. Serve in a tall glass with a sprig of mint….and enjoy 😉

  1. Dear MM&P,

    A Korean teacher at Seoul Global Centre buys 9 or 10 bottles of makgeolli for the students when they have the yearly food festival in Gwanghwamun. Really good stuff, but I can’t remember where you can buy it – no aspartame or chemical additives like the green Seoul Makgeolli bottle.

    Do you have any references to stores like Hyundae, whatever, where I can buy ‘dong-dong ju’ or other really pure makgeolli please? I was told there’s an outlet in Yangjae, but the Japanese at a meeting rushed off to buy, and the rest of us had an event 🙂

    Thanks for the great articles and all, Vincent

    1. Hi Vincent! As it happens, we are working on just such a resource! Its in the works though, so it may be a few weeks before it gets online. Will work on your query and get back to you as soon as we learn anything!
