Pull up a bar stool and let Travel Channel serve up the origins of some well-known liquors, mixers and cocktails from around the world, including vodka, mojitos, sake, Bellinis and Pimm's cup.
Known as the national drink of <a href="http://www.travelchannel.com/tv-shows/booze-traveler/photos/booze-traveler-turkey-pictures">Turkey</a>, raki — pronounced “raka” — can be found at most large-scale liquor stores in the US. The trick to making the drink correctly? Use 1 part raki and 2 parts ice-cold water. Because the anise oils in the raki emulsify when mixed with water, the clear liquids combine to form a white beverage known as Lion’s Milk. It’s named that because Turks believe that raki gives you the strength of a lion.
