Rice Punch & Slush Recipe (Sikhye)

19

Maangchi – Rice Punch & Slush Recipe (Sikhye). Sikhye (rice punch) is a traditional sweet Korean drink made of fermented malt and rice. As the rice ferments, the grains turn white and become spongy, releasing their starch into the liquid, which turns light amber. The punch is never fermented long enough to become alcoholic, and it’s often served as a dessert in Korean restaurants.
