This traditional Japanese cold remedy is almost always eaten from a bowl with chopsticks. Outside Japan it often is referred to as “sake-nog” due to its resemblance to the classic holiday drink.
Tamagozake
(Egg And Sake)
Start to finish: 5 minutes

3/4 cup sake

1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon honey

In a small saucepan, heat the sake over medium until hot but not boiling. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the beaten egg and honey until thoroughly combined. Stir the egg mixture into the hot sake. Serve immediately.

The sake also can be heated in the microwave.
