Ayran is the most popular cold drink in Turkey. Religious conservatives call it THE National Drink—as opposed to rakı, alcohol of choice on any meze table. I love the frothy crema rural villagers used to achieve with the traditional method of shaking the yoğurt in a sheepskin or wooden barrel. I’ve found a simpler way using a cocktail shaker and a bit of milk.
