Hugo Spritz Cocktail Recipe

The Hugo Spritz or Alpine Spritz (pronounced ‘Ugo’ by Italians) originated in the northern Italian region Alto-Adige - an area where the elderberry plant thrives in summer. A light and refreshing aperitivo! According to the Spritz book by Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau, the original recipe called for lemon syrup before changing to elderflower syrup. Given that elderflower isn't prevalent in other regions, it's common to utilise elderflower liqueur as it's replacement.
