1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard

Amazake is a traditional sweet, low-alcoholic Japanese drink made from fermented rice. The basic recipe for amazake has been used for hundreds of years. Kōji is added to cooled whole grain rice causing enzymes to break down the carbohydrates into simpler unrefined sugars. As the mixture incubates, sweetness develops naturally. Amazake can be used as a dessert, snack, natural sweetening agent, baby food, salad dressing or smoothie. Amazake is believed to be very nutritious, with no additives, preservatives, added sugars or salts.
