KOREA: SUBAK-SOJU

One of my fiancé's favorite drinks is Soju and I am so desperate to get him to visit Seoul with me again some day. I fell in love with Korea when I was working there for 2 weeks back in 2019. Okay so what is in this fave of ours? Its a blend of rice liquor (Soju) and some fresh watermelon and lime juices. Check this watermelon cocktail out.


Ingredients

  • 1 mini seedless watermelon

  • 1 bottle (375ml) of soju (you can substitute with vodka, white rum or sake)

  • 1 bottle (355ml) of sprite
