Review: The label on this bottle of rice wine says “Not For Beverage Use.”

I don’t especially like it when my groceries tell me what I should or shouldn’t do. I mean, that’s the best part about moving out of the parents’ place and buying your own groceries. Those bags of Fritos and Mello-Yello don’t tell you what to do! Besides, with a warning like that on a liquid with 19.5% alcohol content, all I could think of on the way home was what a glass of this stuff would taste like. Of course, I know better and realize that it would taste worse than rubbing alcohol shots from a bottle cap, so I didn’t. It seems like my groceries think I’m an idiot.

This wine does taste good (or it adds flavor rather) when used in a black bean vinegar sauce in sparing amounts. Though, not the fanciest or most fragrant wine to use in stir fries or other dishes, this inexpensive bottle of michiu will last me a long time and serve to spice up many dishes.
