It’s that time again, when Watermelon is in season and they become super sweet, juicy and abundant. It’s odd how it tends to be in season closer to the end of Summer but I’m not complaining – having watermelon at the end of the summer lets me feel like I’m stretching out Summer so that I can forget that Autumn is right around the corner.

Instead of eating the watermelon, I decided it’d be a nice change of pace to make a watermelon cocktail out of it and drink it! This watermelon cocktail recipe is super easy to throw together and tastes best with a lot of ice and chilled very well so that it is refreshing and very cold. The sweetness of this drink will be mostly controlled by how sweet your watermelon is but you can easily adjust it with a bit of maple syrup or honey.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

For this soju watermelon cocktail recipe, all ingredients can be found at your local grocery store except for the alcohol. The alcohol may be found at a liquor store.

 

Soju Watermelon Cocktail Ingredients

 

You can substitute maple syrup with honey for the recipe but you might need to melt the honey with a bit of warm water before adding it to the watermelon juice, since honey tends to solidify when it is cold.

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

Double Straining to Remove Foam

While you are blending the watermelon, you may notice that the watermelon mixture will become foamy. You can remove most of the foam by straining the juice twice.

Maple Syrup to Remove the Alcohol Bite

While I was making this, my goal was to make this cocktail as smooth as possible so you didn’t have that initial alchohol bite. I found that adding a tablespoon of maple syrup removed that initial alcohol bite with it’s caramelized sweetness, which didn’t make the drink overly sweet. If you don’t have maple syrup, I would use a dark honey as a substitution.

Description

A refreshing and sweet soju watermelon cocktail recipe that’s super simple and quick to make. Perfect drinks to entertain guests with or when you want that to treat yourself!


Ingredients

  • 4 cups Watermelon (3 lb)
  • 1 bottle of soju (360ml)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)

Instructions

  1. Remove the skin and cut the watermelon up into chunks that will fit into a blender
  2. In a blender, blitz it until it is liquidy (don’t worry if it becomes frothy)
  3. In a large bowl or large pitcher, pour out the watermelon juice through a strainer. If it is very frothy, you can run it through the strainer twice to remove some of the foaminess.
  4. Add the bottle of soju and maple syrup and mix
  5. Refrigerate for an hour or until it is cold.
  6. Serve with lots of ice and sprigs of basil or mint (with flowers) as a garnish and enjoy!

Notes

  • If you are substituting maple syrup with honey, melt the honey with 1 tablespoon of hot or warm water before adding it into the juice so that it mixes in smoothly without sugar clumps which can settle on the bottom. Honey tends to solidify when it gets cold.
  • If you are substituting the maple syrup for honey, try to use a darker honey for a bit more flavor.
