 Recipes for Amazake 
Japanese Creamy Saké Drink

Amazake Concentrate is rich, creamy and unbelievably sweet; yet it contains no sugar or artificial sweeteners, just the natural goodness of premium brown rice. Boiled rice is mixed with malted rice and left to ferment overnight, leaving a sweet, slightly alcoholic flavor. Made in the traditional way by the same family that makes Mikawa mirin, it has been enjoyed for centuries in Japan as a sugar substitute in desserts and baked foods. The alcohol content is so slight that even children may drink amazake. It is the ideal warming winter drink or chill for a refreshing summer treat. The first time I tried Amazake was during the "Yukimatsuri," snow festival in Sapporo, Hokkaido. This delicious, warm beverage is traditionally found at festivals or during the winter holidays. Aveline used to recommend adding a dash of powdered ginger (see condiments) for an authentic taste. Our Amazake is the ultimate sweetener and beverage for nursing mothers, babies and others requiring strength and vitality as it is very nourishing. The 8.8 oz. pouch of Amazake Concentrate makes approx. 2 Cups.
