Today I’d like to introduce you to Subak Soju (or Soju watermelon cocktail as I like to call it), a very popular cocktail in Korean bars in America that you can easily make at home. It’s made with soju, which is the #1 distilled beverage in Korea but not well known to the rest of the world. If you can’t find it, you can substitute it with vodka. Whichever method you use, the ratio of soju to blended watermelon is 1:1. People love the floating ice and the delicious watermelon in this drink – it’s sweet, cold, and very refreshing. But be careful! It tastes very fruity but there’s a lot of alcohol inside! Soju is a clear distilled alcohol with a hint of sweetness. I’m pretty sure most of you would love it, I sure do even though I find it quite strong.
INGREDIENTS 2 small seedless watermelons, kept in the fridge 2 bottles of soju, kept in the fridge (about 4 cups worth)
2 cups of ice cubes
