Yogurt Drink or Ayran is a Turkish yogurt drink made of only three ingredients: yogurt, water and salt. This traditional Turkish drink is salty and tangy and also healthy. As a savory yogurt drink, ayran is usually served cold or with ice alongside main dishes for lunch or dinner. Some would say ayran is Turkey's national drink.
