Sports Makgeolli in a Can

Makgeolli has long been the drink for farmers who work long hours in the fields and are in need of a refreshing pick-me-up. Still today, nothing satisfies better than a cool, crisp bowl at the top of a mountain hike. Now there’s a new makgeolli on the shelves that is geared towards the image of makgeolli as a replenishing sports drink.

Called ‘Me 3%’, this new makgeolli comes in two flavors, regular (Me3 Blue) and citrus (Me3 Green), and it has a lower alcohol content to most kinds of makgeolli. It comes in shiny cans and is marketed towards those playing golf or football or other outdoor sports.

If you’re thinking it’s a bit strange to reach for a can of booze after working out, try not to think of it as a high performance supplement. Makgeolli can be a refreshing reward after physical exertion, and the lower alcohol content might make it more accessible. We haven’t as yet trialed the Me3 range, but you can purchase them at most supermarkets and try it for yourself!

  1. They only sell it at Homeplus in my area but I have to say I really enjoy it. I have only tried the citrus flavor but to me it tastes like makegeolli cider with a hint of lemon. A really delicious drink all around and great for the summer.

    1. Good to hear! Do you drink it straight out of the can or pour it into a glass? We have had some trouble mixing up the sediment in the can without it exploding 😉

      1. I usually drink it straight from the can. I don’t think it has much sediment and because of the carbonation I have not tried shaking it.
