“"First created in a T.G.I Friday’s restaurant in Busan, Korea, this cocktail has become a hit in bars around the world. June Bug is another name for the cotinis nitida beetle, a bug which inhabits the trees of hardwood forests. The June Bug cocktail was probably named for its brownish golden color which resembles that of the beetle. It also shares a soft, velvety texture with the creatures, whose bodies are covered in fine, silky hairs." This recipe is a little different than the ones already posted on 'Zaar. It is taken from the Midori.com website and posted for ZWT.”
