For Hugo:

  • Ice
  • 2 oz Prosecco
  • 2 oz soda water or seltzer water
  • 1 oz elderflower syrup
  • 4-6 mint leaves (plus an extra sprig of mint to garnish, if desired)
  • Lime slice



In a wine glass, gently muddle the mint leaves, elderflower syrup and soda water to release the flavor of the mint.

Add the Prosecco and ice then garnish with the lime slice and mint, if desired.

Note: For a stronger drink substitute the elderflower syrup with ½ oz or 1 oz elderflower liqueur.
