The best drink to pair with your Ethiopian meal is Tej. It's known as "honey wine," but is actually a mead that is indigenous produced from pure wild flower honey and specialty hops imported from Ethiopia. It's pale yellow and contains no carbonation. If you can't find a bottle near you, you can purchase it online at brotherhood winery for $11 (thanks HonestMuffin!), or you can do the next best thing and make a batch of your own.
2 cups white wine (choose a sweet one such as a Riesling)
2 cups water
1/4 cup Honey
- Mix all together well. Serve lightly chilled.
