Turkish Boza

Traditional winter drink boza is made and served in winter to warm your body. ( mildly fermented and millet based, hot milke with cinnamon and sahlep, from crushed orchid tubers; frequently served on ferries)

boza is made from fermented millet. Only drunk in the winter, its mild, tangy, yoghurty flavour is supposed to give you the strength to get through the cold weather. And the only place to drink boza in Istanbul is in the beautiful old Vefa Bozacısı, on Çelebi Caddesi. It’s quite a ritual to have your boza there...drop a few of your roast chickpeas on top, and dig in. It’s a surprisingly light and refreshing pick-me-up, made all the more special by the surroundings, of course.

The drink that gives you strength – Istanbul style
