WHAT MAKES STMJ A SPECIAL DRINK

Perfect combination of the four ingredients in the drink, particularly, ginger, milk and honey, makes the taste delicious. It is a perfect drink to warm your body up when the weather is cold. Of course, taste of STMJ is influenced by some factors, including:

1. Perfect mixture. You may need to experiment before arriving at an ideal taste. STMJ is normally made of 250-300 ml of liquid milk, 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 egg (choose free-range chicken egg to make the taste more delicious and to avoid the fishy smell), and 3 cm of bruised ginger

2. Preparation method. Another important aspect that determines the taste of STMJ is preparation. The drink is made by boiling the bruised ginger in the liquid milk. Then you can add the egg. The honey is put into the glass immediately before STMJ is served. Simple techniques like stirring the drink to avoid clotting.

3. Time of drink. The best moment to enjoy STMJ is when it is still cold. STMJ offers a warming sensation, thanks to the ginger ingredients.

STMJ is a great choice of drink to boost your stamina. Some people love to serve it with raw egg added with milk and honey, while some others prefer to half-cooked egg. The choice depends on your personal preferences. STMJ is easy to get in food stalls or waroeng in Indonesia, particularly in the evening. Men, particularly, love the drink to restore their stamina after working during the day.
