  1. Using a sharp knife, cut ⅛–¼ inch (3 mm-6mm) off of one end of the watermelon to make a flat surface. Set the watermelon upright and cut off the top to expose the flesh. Scoop out the flesh with a large spoon into a large bowl. Make sure to not go all the way through the bottom of the watermelon–this will be your serving vessel.
  2. Use an immersion blender (or transfer to a standing blender) to blend the watermelon flesh for 1 minute, until smooth. Strain the watermelon juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean large bowl or pitcher to remove the pulp. You should have about 4 cups (960 ml).
  3. Thinly slice the mint leaves, then add to the watermelon juice, along with the soju, and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the watermelon soju mixture into the hollowed-out watermelon shell (reserve any leftovers in the refrigerator until ready to refill, or for a later use) and fill the rest of the way with the ice. Garnish with more mint leaves, if desired. Serve cold.
  5. Enjoy!
