Reading some of the posts it seems the prices for a spirit and mixer have gone up since last year?
I remember the best place we found was an open bar near the Central Bar (like underneath it) and I think they were doing a vodka and energy drink for 5 lira. This was two years ago though.
Is there much of a watering down culture here? I never noticed too much as we'd always drink in the hotel room first!
Even local vodka to buy and take home seemed steep unless it was raki!
