Turkey has two main popular drinks which is Turkish Tea and Turkish Coffee. Other drinks are below in the speciality section.


Speciality Drinks

  • Ayran – A blend of salt, yoghurt and water (sounds horrendous but is actually quite tasty)
  • Rakı – One of Turkeys favourite alcohols, it is an aniseed flavoured spirit usually served with water and ends up looking a milky colour once the water is added to the clear spirit.
  • Çay – The most popular drink in Turkey as mentioned above, always served black and usually Turkish people add 2-4 sugars and never any milk. Enjoyed everyday in Turkey more than once a day
  • Turkish Coffee – You can drink it plain or sweet but mostly Turkish coffee is very strong because it is made with unfiltered finely ground coffee beans.
  • Salep – Salep is a creamy hot drink usually served when it is cold, it is made from crushed orchid root, milk and cinnamon.Sahlep.jpg
  • Boza – Creamy and slightly sweet drink made from fermented wheat, traditionally sold on the streets during colder evenings.cinnamonchickpeasglass
