Cocktail Course: How to Prepare Hugo Spritz

A tasty alternative to the classic Spritz: Hugo, once invented in Bolzano, North of Italy, is becoming more and more popular all around the south. At 300 Mila Lounge, Lecce (according to Gambero Rosso one of the 30 BEST aperitivo bars in ITALY; Via 140° Reg. Fanteria, Tel. 0832288383) it’s one of the top sellers, especially in the winter, since it’s a bit sweeter and not quite as strong as the Campari or Aperol Spritz. Put ice cubes in a glass, add the juice of 1/2 lime, then 2 cl of elder liquor. Pick a couple of fresh mint leves and squeeze them beside the ice cubes. Add Bellavista or any kind of dry Prosecco, according to your taste.
