Rakı & Raki

About

Yeni Raki Markası
Brand Name New Rakı
Anasonlu Çipuro
Cıpuro with Anason
(τσίπουρο με γλυκάνισο)
Ben büyük bir Rakı hayranıyım. Tüm Akdenizde onlarca çeşit Rakı yapılıyor. Türkiye’nin kendi özgü tadı, Türk Rakısı, anasonlu ve su katıldığında renk değiştiren yapısıyla yıllardır pazarda olan YENİ RAKI.   I am a big fan of Rakı. In all Mediterranean dozens of different kind of Rakı is being made. The Turkish version of it is always called, Turkish Rakı. It is with anason and made from grapes. It changes its color when water added and the most well-known brand name is NEW RAKI.

Peki, Rakı ya da Raki dediğimiz içecek aslında kelime olarak bize ne ifade ediyor. Bir önceki yazıda olduğu gibi yine bir yanlış anlama söz konusu. Yunan rakısı anasonu olmayan, bal veya başka şerbetlerle karıştırılıp çoğunlukla ılıktan biraz sıcak servis yapılan bir içecek. Türk rakısı ise mezeyle tüketilen anason kokan sert ve sudan başka ancak buzun girebildiği bir içecek. Yunanistan’da Rakı deyipte önüme gelen içecekle ne kadar şaşırdığımı anlatmaya gerek yok sanırım.

Şimdi size bir ipucu. Yunanistan’da Türk usulu rakı içmek için garsona ne demelisiniz. Gayet basit. Anasonlu Çipuro ismarlayın; önünüze ‘Klüp Rakı’ kıvamında bir içki gelecek. Yunanistan’da rakıya su katılmadığı içinde yanına ekstra bir bardak ve buz istemeyi unutmayın. Gençlerin bolca gittiği barlarda yanına beyaz peynir isterseniz de tuhaf bakışların hedefi olabilirsiniz. Zira ‘Çipuraya peynir olur mu ya?’ gibi bir bakış gelmiştir ya da gelecektir.

  So, what does mean for Greeks and Turk when you name a drink RAKI. As it is in my previous post. There is a small misunderstanding on what we call what. Greek Raki is without anason and mostly added different kind of sweet think like honey and serviced nearly warm. Turkish Rakı on the other hand is only used with lots of ‘meze’ and includes heavy anason. We mix with cold water and at most add some ice cubes. So you might imagine my face when I ordered RAKI in Greece in a pub.

Now here is the hint. If you would like to drink something close to Turkish Rakı in Greece. You should ask for Cıpuro with anason. The taste of it is very similar to one of the Rakı brands in Turkey called ‘Klup Rakı’. Alsoö do not forget to ask for cold water and ice cubes. If you order it in a bar and also ask for some ‘feta’ next to it; either you already had a strange look or you are getting one very soon.
