Cocktail recipe: Hugo

For those of you who are German or Austrian, Hugo might have been your go-to drink for the last 5 years anyway. However, after (unsuccessfully) trying to order this drink in several other places in the world, I gave up.

Until one of my friends here in Norway, who is Austrian, organised a Hugo night last weekend and we were glad that the other guests from Finland, Norway, Sweden, Croatia, France and England enjoyed this drink just as much as we did.

All you need for a Hugo are these ingredients in a white wine glass:

– 2 cl elderflower syrup
– 150 ml Prosecco / sparkling wine
– fresh mint leaves
(If you like you can top it of with some sparkling water)

It’s absolutely delicious and really refreshing on sunny days outside.

What’s your favourite drink?
