The people, on the other hand, would rest and gain energy by consuming the sherbet they bought in a shade on hot summer days. In these times, when there were no energy drinks like redbull, the people preferred these drinks that were both healthy and delicious.

The Turks used snow to cool their drinks (Karsambaç; Snow and molasses sherbet). Impressed by this, Italy started to make sorbet with snow and laid the foundations of the first ice cream with the milk and cream it used. Today, besides coffee, sherbet and its derivatives, which are used for guests, at birth and during Ramadan, maintain their currentity and diversity in Istanbul’s Famous Historical Restaurants.
