This is a silly question but when i'v been out for a meal i'v seen alot of bulgarians with a glass of drink which look's like milk, they seem to take a swig before they take a drink of rakia or another kind of spirit ,does anyone know why they do this. griswalds.
The milk alike white liquid is "айря̀н" (stirred joghurt with water) or buttermilk.
But, I think, they first take rakia, and then the buttermilk.
Mostly they us to drink it with the "мастика" or anisette, anise-flavoured brandy.
