Description: The Korean Summer Breeze is a refreshing cocktail that brings together the unique flavors of omija (Schisandra chinensis), a traditional Korean ingredient known for its five distinct flavors: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and pungent. This cocktail balances these intriguing notes with the crispness of Korean pear and the soothing touch of green tea. The drink is perfect for summer evenings or any time you want to experience a taste of Korea. Ingredients: 1. Omija Syrup: - 1 cup dried omija berries - 2 cups water - 1 cup sugar 2.
