Turkey--Livin' on Lion's Milk
From the ancient ruins of Troy to the lush vineyards of Izmir, to the mosques and bazaars of Istanbul, the Thirsty Traveler discovers Turkey's rich traditions and their fondness for one very special homegrown spirit--raki.
Also known locally as "Lion's Milk"--because of the color the spirit turns when ice or water is added--this deliciously sweet cousin to Greek ouzo and French pastis is a Turkish staple when sharing good times with friends and family. The question is, however, how much Lion's Milk can the Thirsty Traveler down?
