Hi guys,

I just got Yeni Raki from a friend who had been Turkey as well.
He said just put chill water into Raki - that's it!

but wondered one like me cannot stop thinking
as maybe there is something to put into Raki....
to be the better drink or even the best drink!

what's about yours, guys?
please share :)

and does any one know about the magic of Turkish coffee?

I heard that Turkish can tell you just take a look at the bottom of a coffee
cup!
Have Turkish coffee then bottom up - your fate would be appeared!

you know, you would say I don't believe in fate nor destiny!
but if you meet one who knows how to tell (play), it's cool! ehh? ;)


Thanks a million and cheerssss,
Pari

They is a saying
RAKI IS THE ANSWER.
SO WHAT WAS THE QUESTION?
Sultan Serhat of Istanbul is the best person to answer your question.
I am a non-drinker.

 Raki is our favorite drink.We put chill water in to raki.I never heard
anything
 to mixed with raki.I advise you to be carefull.It is quite strong drink.I
don't
 drink raki much.My favorite drink is beer.
  And fortune telling with coffee cup:Usually some Turkish women does it.
  I don't believe it.I believe in fate but I don't believe in fortune
telling.But it is
  well-known between Turkish housewifes.

hi,
overhere some people mix it with orange-juice (not soo bad) or with coke
(terrible, arrrrgh). herewith i apoligize for this terrible bahaviour of our
countriemen (mostly young guys of turkish descent are involved in that!).
toni is right, best to ask sultan sehat, grandmaster of raki-ceremony.
cheers
volker
ps. if you mix one third of raki with two thirds of water it only makes 15% vol'

Hello friends,

Let me get my third glass of rakı and then I can tell 
what I know and how I drink it:)

Mandatory rules of drinking Rakı:

1 - Drink it with your friends, never drink it alone!!! the most important
rule.

2 - Strongly advised that Rakı is best after 17 or 18 pm ; one of the best
drink with/at dinner and following hours, better to stop at 3 or 4 am and have a
tribe soup or a Turkish coffee:)

3 - Rakı is not a drink to get drunk just a drink to have fun with friends

4 - Rakı never makes headache , just makes the world go round:)

5-  Drink rakı with some snacks and appetizers ( We call them ''meze'' ; best
meze can be found in Turkey and Greece) also fruits are good, but white cheese
is the cousin of Rakı

6- Rakı is not a drink; It is a medicine:) I believe it.....

7-Rakı is good with conservation 

8- Rakı is good with Turkish and Greek and Balkan Music:)

9- Rakı is the brother of Kebap and Fish

10- You can shine with a glass of beer

You can mix it with water or mineral water or with turnip juice
like half/half in a typical rakı glass

Welcome to Turkey and then you can enjoy Turkish rakı and Turkish coffee:)

I can see a trip to Asia for you,   no no to Europe no no 
in the middle of these two continents; you will visit istanbul my friend, I see
it in the bottom of your coffee cup:)

Hope to see you and drink rakı with you
