Author Notes: Traditionally, tamagozake is a Japanese warm sake, raw whole egg and sugar drink thought to help cure a cold. It is a Japanese egg nog. My version adds fresh grated ginger, lemon, and honey while using only the egg white. I also have added spices to my version. This looks like a whole snowy mountain top in a glass, worthy of a haiku. I really like the way it tastes, too. —Sagegreen
- 1 farm fresh egg white, beaten until very fluffy
- 1-2 tablespoons milkweed honey (or other varietal of your choice) to taste
- 1 tablespoon Meyer's lemon juice
- 3/4 cup warmed sake, heated below boiling
- 1 teaspoon peeled, grated fresh ginger
- Meyer lemon peel twist wrapped around a cinnamon stick for garnish
- optional dried ground ginger or grated nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled on top
- After beating the egg white until fluffy, mix the honey and lemon juice with it.
- Whisk in your heated sake to the egg white mixture. Stir in the fresh grated ginger.
- Pour this into your glass. Garnish with lemon peel twist wrapped along a delicate cinnamon stick. You can tuck the lemon peel at one end into a crease of the cinnamon. Sprinkle optional dried ground ginger or grated nutmeg and cinnamon on top.
