Hugo Cocktail Recipe


I was in Munich (Germany) at the weekend and everyone is drinking Hugo. The Hugo Cocktail is a refreshing, comparatively weakly alcoholic cocktail of Prosecco, elderflower syrup, lime wheels, fresh mint and soda water. The Hugo Cocktail spread, starting from South Tyrol, after 2005 especially in the German-speaking area.
