New somac glass ensures perfect soju-beer blend

Gimmicky shot glass combines smiley faces, soju and beer


somac The new somac shot glasses make great housewarming gifts for bachelor pads. A new novelty shot glass called ‘Somacjan’ has debuted in online shopping and has been making the rounds on Naver blogs.

The shot glass is marked like a measuring cup to ensure exact beer to soju ratios for the popular "Somac" drink. 

Calibrated with smiley faces next to each ratio, the glass kindly explains what to expect from each blend. The 1:9 ratio “goes gently down the throat," 3:7 is the “golden ratio," while the 5:5 ratio requires “Caution: Black-out, dead-drunk." 

The novelty glasses can be bought online at www.sinnafactory.com.
