It is Saturday and we want to party hard! So we have to get back to Istanbul to find some good clubs! And since clubbing is always better if you have a lot of friends with you, our new friends from Bursa decided to come with us to Istanbul! So we went to catch the ferry across the Marmara Sea. With a bit of delay and after the decision to stay in the worst hotel we’ve been so far (more on that in a later post), we made our way to our meeting point. The Galata tower in the heart of Istanbul. Could there be a better place to drink? The plan was to have a Efes Extra Strong. But it turned out different than planned. I didn’t know Turkish people were that much into vodka but turns out that there are several Turkish vodka brands. One of them, Binboa Vodka, Lemon flavor.
It had a slight yellow color and smelled like boozy lemon. And that’s what it tasted like as well. It had a sweet lemon flavor with an alcoholic aftertaste. A bit too sweet for my taste. And with 20% not the vodka you expect you to get you going for a party. Not the worst drink I have had so far, but also far away from the best.
