On the banks of the Donau Kanal is a strange boat like form that houses a delicious organic restaurant and cafe called Motto am Fluss.

Now, we don’t tend to return to the same place twice when on holiday to ge get the max experience out of a place but this little gem really deserved it.

So on day one we delighted our taste-buds with salmon on a bed of bok choi, lightly seasoned with fish sauce and a hearty but delicately flavoured roast beef sandwich.

it’s here we tasted the delicious pink basil lemonade and a would also recommend that you take a peek at their cocktail list as they have some delicious combinations such as the Elderberry and basil Caipiroska and apricot Caipirinha-yum!

Only draw back- no English menu so sharpen your Deutsch before visiting!

Back from Vienna and connected enough to blog at last.

Mr Towers and I had decided to take it easy this time as our style of tourism tends to be exhausting but sadly we are incapable of following our own dicatatum.

One of the highlights of a few days spent in a tropically hot Vienna was the lovely Basil Pink Lemonade which isn’t just great cos it’s pink and refreshing but because it has basil in it.

As Italians you would expect the Towers to be familiar with good old basil and unable to serve our favourite tomato pasta without it as a topping- quite wrong.

We barely ever use the thing although the few plants we’ve had were defoliated through eating very quickly.

Anyway my point is that this lemonade is absolutely delightful and refreshing because of the basil which gives it an extra aromatic zing.

Will be making this in months to come – yum!
