Tamagozake is a Japanese cocktail made up of sake, sugar and raw egg. The word Tamagozke translates into ' egg sake'. Outside Japan, it is known as sake-nog because of its resemblance to egg-nog. In japan, this cocktail is used as an effective cure for common cold because the sake ensures good sleep while the egg strengthens the immune system against flu germs.
