Everywhere in Turkey, next to black tea and raki, people drink Ayran. When I was eating in a doner kebab place, I saw people around me drinking a milky looking drink with their food. The owner asked if I wanted ayran, as if he offered me tea or water, it is the drink, I understood. I had it before, and said: Yes please. It is a healthy, refreshing and cleansing drink, and you make it like this: 3 cups yoghurt, 2 cups milk, 3 cups cold water, 1,5 teaspoon salt. Beat the yogurt with a fork or mixer in a bowl. Add milk gradually, stir in the cold water, add the salt, and mix well. As you see, this will be quite a quantity, but I have a book whith recipes from Turkish cuisine, and all the ingredients ar meant for a meal for twelve people. This says something about Turkish hospitality! You can buy Ayran in the supermarket in the diary department in big and small quantities. Do try this at home, as opposed to the programme: Don't try this at home. If you like, I can add more recipes, to make you familiar or re-establish your love for Turkish cuisine!
