Shikhye drink from Korea

Sikhye (also spelled shikhye or shikeh) is a traditional sweet Korean rice beverage, usually served as a dessert. In addition to its liquid ingredients, sikhye contains grains of cooked rice. It is made by pouring malt water onto cooked rice. The malt water steeps in the rice at typically 150 degrees Fahrenheit until grains of rice appear on the surface. The liquid is then carefully poured out, leaving the rougher parts, and boiled with sugar. Shikhye is also known to help digestion and contain high amount of fibre. The drink taste good and with mild sweetness.

Great to reduce thirst. This Shikhye is produced by Korea Yakult. You can get this from any convenience store in Seoul.
