Hugo Spritz: A Sparkling Elderflower Cocktail

Hey there! Have you tried a Hugo Spritz yet? It’s this amazing summery cocktail that’s light, bubbly, and bursting with elderflower flavor. Plus, it’s incredibly easy to make, which is always a win in my book.

Here’s why I love this recipe:

First of all, it’s like a summertime spritzer in a glass. It’s perfect for sipping on the porch on a warm evening, and it’s fancy enough to serve at a party but easy enough to throw together on a whim. The elderflower liqueur adds this beautiful floral note that’s balanced by a touch of citrus and herb from the mint (or basil, if you prefer).

Another great thing? You can literally make this drink right in the glass, no fancy shaking or mixing required. Plus, you can easily adjust it to your taste. Want it a little sweeter? Add a splash more elderflower liqueur. Feeling fancy? Top it off with Champagne instead of Prosecco!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Elderflower liqueur: I like St-Germain, but any brand you like will work.
  • Sparkling wine: Prosecco is classic, but Cava or even a Brut from California would be delicious too. Feeling fancy? Break out the Champagne!
  • Mint or basil: Pick your favorite – they both complement the other flavors nicely.
  • A splash of lime juice
  • Soda water
  • Ice

How to make it:

  1. Grab a wine glass and fill it with ice.
  2. Muddle a few mint leaves (or basil) with a squeeze of lime juice in the glass.
  3. Pour in your elderflower liqueur, followed by the Prosecco.
  4. Top it all off with a splash of soda water and give it a quick stir.
  5. Garnish with a lime wheel and a sprig of mint (or basil) and enjoy!
