A South Tyrolean classic
Summer without cocktails is like summer without sun! No matter the time of day, a glass or two of Hugo is always a great idea!
The warmer and longer the evenings, the better the cocktails – not only during last-minute spa holidays at Belvita. Did you know that the popular aperitif Hugo has its origins in South Tyrol? It was first mixed by Roland Gruber back in 2005. Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine summer without it. The basic ingredients for Hugo are Prosecco, mineral water, elderflower syrup, mint, lime, and, of course, ice cubes – because this summer is getting hot.
Here’s how to prepare it:
Wash some mint leaves, squeeze them with your hand, and put them in your glass. Add a handful of ice cubes and the juice of half a lime. You can also add the squeezed lime half to the glass. Then, also add 3cl of elderflower syrup, 160ml of Prosecco, and 100ml of mineral water – or adjust the ratio to your liking. Stirring is not needed. And voilà, your refreshing Hugo is ready. You’ve run out of mint? Try a completely new variation with wild thyme.
