A summer-y 100th.

The 100th blogpost – incredible how time flies. And as incredible where my little ‘I’m going to Istanbul and I’ll just blog about it’-blog has gone.

 

Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. You have no idea HOW appreciated this is.

 

It’s finally summer in Vienna, so here’s a lovely little recipe I brought back from Turkey.

 

Ayran

It’s the perfect drink for a hot summer day. At first, most of us exchange students eyed the stuff curiously, but highly doubtful. But as soon as we learned to enjoy hot food and as soon as the hot weather came, we almost got a little too addicted to the stuff.

To the delight of all English-speakers, this stuff is pronounced like the country Iran. Sounds weird, but it’s true 😉

In Turkey, you’ll get it in every restaurant but mostly ready made. Here’s an easy variation to make at home.

Ingredients for one drink:

200g unsweetened, plain yoghurt

100ml water (still/tap and as cold as you can get it)

1/2 tsp salt

 

Stirr well together and enjoy!

For a really nice variation put your ingredients into a blender and add a few sprigs of mint and/or basil. It’s oh-so-lovely!
