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!
- 6 parts Sake or Nigori sake
- 1 whole Egg
- ½ part Honey or Simple syrup or Brown sugar syrup
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.
