Cold-weather Drinks from Around the World

DaveCook | Jan 16, 2008 09:03 AM

When I'm out food hunting, often a hot drink is just what I need to refuel, but coffee can seem tired. Indonesian sarabba, Turkish sahlep, and Paraguayan cocido con leche are more my speed, and I've been able to track down all of them in New York.

I've got a lead on Turkish boza -- just the mix, not a ready-to-drink version -- but I don't have a clue about where I can find Egyptian sahlab, Indian badam (almond) milk, or Dutch anijsmelk (hot aniseed milk). I'd also welcome leads on better versions of the drinks I've found already:

Any ideas?
