Travelling along the Danube I had some great German, Austrian, Hungarian and even Slovakian wines, however one of the outstanding beverage memories is of Almdudler. Yes, Almdudler – Austria’s favourite drink.
It’s a weird drink, unlike anything else I’ve ever tried, the closest description is watered down apple and elderflower juice with a bouquet garni thrown in before being zapped through a slightly clapped out Soda Stream.
The resultant effect is curiously delightful. Sadly, it doesn’t seem to be available in bars outside Austria, maybe the Austrian tourism department likes it that way to keep people coming back! You can get it in bulk from Amazon, with 5 day delivery.
