What is the best winter drink?


Hot sake is a great winter drink. Here are many ways to make hot sake (atsukan).

1. Put the tokkuri (sake bottle) into the pot with the boiled water. Stop the fire at this moment. Heat it up there for around 2-3 minutes. This is the best way to heat up sake.
2. Heat up sake in the boiling water.
3. Heat up sake up in the microwave. You may better stir it before drinking.

Alcohol absorption begins sooner when drinking hot sake. So you would feel drunk sooner than when drinking cold sake. Alcohol is not absorbed into the body unless it gets to a temperature close to the body temperature.
