Cheers to Hugo!
Today’s post is one for the parents – with summer well and truly on our doorstep, it’s time to talk about summer cocktails. In the UK, we were quite partial to a glass of Pimm’s. But since moving to Berlin, we have been introduced to Hugo, which everyone here seems to love as a summer cocktail of choice, and last weekend we finally made some ourselves.
Ingredients (makes 2)
- 4 fresh mint leaves
- a handful of ice cubes
- 1 lime
- 40ml elderflower cordial
- 200ml Prosecco
- 100ml soda water
- Rub the mint leaves around the insides of two wine glasses.
- Add a couple of ice cubes in to each glass.
- Wash the lime thoroughly under cold water, cut in to wedges, and divide between the glasses, squeezing the wedges out over the ice cube before dropping them in.
- Add the cordial, Prosecco and finally the soda water.
Cheers! You can also find the recipes for some other summer cocktails we created a while back, in my previous post: Sommer Spree, Berlini & Kreuzberg Queen. What’s your favourite summer cocktail?
