Story Behind this Recipe
I fell in love with the Brown Sugar & Ginger Syrup recipe - Recipe ID: 1710264 Adding the syrup this way instead of directly adding ginger makes it smoother, and you get a rich after-taste, which, along with its warmth, is totally addictive. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
If the sake lees aren't dissolving, put them through a tea strainer. Adjust the amounts of all the ingredients as you like. If you don't like sake lees you can make this without them.
