*Note: Mirin is an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine, with a slightly sweet taste. It is a rice wine similar to sake, but with lower alcohol content. In the Kansai style of cooking, Mirin should be used after a quick boil to let alcohol evaporate while in Kanto style of cooking, Mirin should be used as-is. Boiled Mirin is called Nikiri Mirin, literally "boiled over Mirin." [Source: Wikia Lifestyle].
