Have you ever drunk warm alcohol? graph of japanese statisticsLooking at this recent survey from iShare into alcohol people want to drink warm, although the traditional Scottish hot toddy seems very much unknown, the Japanese equivalent is a sake egg-nog called Tamoago-zake, but I don’t fancy the sound of it.
