Sketch of the day in my moleskine‬ art journal is a bottle of Yeni Raki,  anise flavoured alcoholic drink, made in Turkey‬ by distilling grapes obtained during wine fermentation.


How to drink Yeni Raki?

It is consumed straight in a small glass or with chilled water.  It is a must with meze, a selection of cold or hot appetizers like tapas, and is considered Turkey’s national drink. Yeni Raki is one of the most popular  brands. You will see people drinking it at dinner in restaurants in Istanbul and around Turkey. Drink in a group, with friends, never alone 🙂
