Blessed drink, fined now, raki is an important part of coktails in some Istanbul trendy restaurants. I still prefer it pure, but let's try.
The most successful meeting is with vodka and mint at Yeni Lokanta, a very good restaurant - with higher prices and less amazing than Neolokal.
The bar 360 is located on the 8th floor of a building in Istiklal Avenue. Here everything is about the panoramic view because the cocktails are not terrible, too many ice. But they had the good idea to associate raki with beet juice, it seems quite common in Turkey.
Finally, the idea has come to make a cocktail at home : raki / sparkling water. I tested this mixture without much hope. I was right, it's not terrible either. In short, like everything else when it is selected, a good raki is sufficient in itself.
