maakholic is a makkoli/champagne bar in chungdam-dong

Just had to blog about this new spot I discovered through some of my sommelier friends! Maakholic is a makgoelli (Korean rice wine) and Champagne bar in Chungdam-dong.  Known to only carry specialty makgeolli and cocktails made with makgeolli that cannot be found elsewhere, this is a great spot for a weekend evening!

Makkoli is rice wine produced through fermenting a mixture of rice grains and boiled water.  This is what gives it it's milky sweetness.  Best served with pajeon (Korean style pancake).
