I'm glad to report that Nostalgia has redeemed itself here with the Shikhye. Shikhye is a Korean sweet rice nectar, usually served with pine kernels or dried dates floating in it and ideally suited to follow greasy or meat based meals. I’ve even found recipes (albeit confusing ones) so a home made version may be on the cards at some point in the future. The same drink is also reviewed here.
Here are the photos:
Unlike Guinness it is best not to allow too long for the drink to settle before consumption.
Spoon required at this point.
The drink and the chewy rice are tasty, with a slight twang of the ginger content, and it has a more pleasing texture than the soggy cardboard like Rambutan Juice. Would have been better if it did have some pine kernels in it too, but a good alrounder.
