Lion's Milk

Ankara, Turkey

Photo of a glass of raki, which is Turkey's national drink. It's colorless but turns white when mixed with milk, when it becomes milky white (and is called "Lion's Milk"). The glass used is clear with a blue base, but I managed to angle the sole light around so that the blue tint extended upwards.

The lighting is perfect, Helen.
