Tamagozake

Tamagozake hot cocktail, with sake, honey, and a whole egg

Tamagozake (“tah-mah-go-zah-keh” – literally, “egg sake”) is a traditional Japanese cold remedy. We confess we weren’t excited to try this one – hot egg and booze, who could resist? – but it’s far more pleasant than it sounds, and it truly is a comforting belly-warming tonic. It’s sake-forward, but sweet and creamy, with the scent of rice. A caution, though: drink it quickly, before it cools!

Ingredients

Instructions

Heat the sake in the microwave in a heatproof measuring cup or bowl, or on the stovetop, until the sake is hot but not boiling. Remove from heat, and whisk in the remaining ingredients. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a heatproof mug or toddy glass.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
