Spiked Sujeonggwa

Where are my Koreans at?
My ladies and I love Korean BBQ.
Our go to spot is @koreahouseorlando

After our last visit, our server sold us on Sujeonggwa, a Korean cinnamon-ginger tea, to aid in digestion. Needless to say, it was so damn good!

I did some research and decided to make my own. I used turbinado sugar, white sugar, ginger, and cinnamon sticks. Of course I had to put some booze in it. Since it’s Fall, this drink is perfect for the occasion. Enjoy!


  • Scratch made Korean cinnamon-ginger tea (chilled)
  • 2oz Soju (or more) @hitejinroamerica
  • Garnished with pine nuts
