    After much, much Sake drinking (not all at the same time), I have come to this conclusion :
    Sake, in my personal opinion and personal taste, is not a stand-alone drink like beer or wine.
    But it's more like liquor. In that it tastes better when combined with a mixer, like juice, carbonated soda, etc.

    It's one of those 'acquired taste' items like bourbon imho. I have never really 'acquired the taste'...

    It's baffling that bars don't carry the amazing and versatile Sake, and that you apparently can only get it in Sushi restaurants/bars.
    It's such a wrongful stereotype and stigma, that it only goes with Sushi.

    Default Re: Sake & Other Asian Beverages

    I recently stumbled upon a recipe for 'Makgeolli' (pronounced 'mock-a-lee'), a Korean rice wine. It takes just 9-10 days to make, looks like milk when completed, and can have an alcohol content from 6% to 15% depending on whether or to what extent you dilute it. Very simple to make.

    In a nutshell, you are repeatedly rinsing and then steaming Korean or Japanese sushi rice, combining it in a fermenter with 'Nuruk' (a fermented wheat product you can buy at a Korean or Asian grocery), and add some water and a wine yeast. You can use plain old bread yeast but I felt like the product would be better with an actual yeast intended for wine. This concoction gets stirred up and is allowed to ferment in a dark place for 9-10 days. The product is then filtered and it can be used as is or watered down. I have never had Makgeolli and am looking forward to seeing what this stuff tastes like.
