Anise flavored alcoholic beverage from Turkey similar to the Greek Ouzo, and Arabic Arak, but is less sweet and therefore tastes better (in my opinion)

Similar types of drinks are popular elsewhere in the Mediterranean e.g sambuca and pastis. But there's nothing like a good Raki, aka. Lion's milk.

Best enjoyed by the sea, with a view of the Bosporus at sunset, with a mezze selection (the minimum requirement being melon and feta cheese), fish, good music and good friends.
Raki is not just a drink, it's an experience, a philosophy a lifestyle!

A drink similar to Ouzo, but made from grapeseed, not aniseed, ranging from 40% to 60%. Can cause hilarity in the correct hands/mouth.

delicious turkish drink. it is harder than ouzo. ouzo tastes a little sweet compared to raki. most popular one is "yeni raki" which means "new raki" in Turkish. it is like a tradition to drink it in turkish lands. like drinking tequila in mexico. it is called 'lion milk' in street talk, because of its hardness or its color is white.
lets have raki-fish in bosphorus.

Beautiful,unique girl with a big heart. Mess with her and you will regret it. She can hold a grudge but will receive you with open arms if you man up. She can sleep for a whole day but when she's hyped up... she's hyped up! She can be a little extra but the people who appreciate her don't mind it.
Don't you think Raki is weird in a good way? I think she is.

An unsweetened, often aniseed-flavoured, alcoholic drink that is popular in Albania, Greece, Iran, Turkic countries, and in the Balkan countries as an apéritif.
If you mix a glass of half rakı and half water, the liquid will turn milky white.
