Looking for a refreshing drink that’s perfect in this blazing hot weather? Hugo by Stella Angelo might be just what you’re looking for. This intriguing tipple is more than just a wine or aperitif. Best part? With this simple sparkling wine cocktail recipe, you can make a classic summer drink with just two ingredients.
What is Hugo by Stella Angelo?
This sparkling wine is made with Prosecco crafted with a blend of Trebbiano and Garganega grapes along with elderflower essence. The addition of natural elderflower aromatics gives the sparkling wine a unique floral flavour that brings to mind European summers.
Originally created by bartender Roland Gruber from Naturns in the Italian Alps in 2005, the drink was devised as an alternative to Spritz Veneziano – another popular Italian wine-based cocktail. The Hugo proved to be wildly successful and gained popularity across Europe, even as far as Austria and Germany. Today, it is one of the most popular aperitif-style cocktails in Southern Europe. Hugo by Stella Angelo is an Italian sparkling wine that recreates this classic European drink and remains true to its Italian roots.
And because it’s so easy to make, it’s a perfect drink for a picnic by the beach or to impress a special someone on date night. To create the cocktail, simply muddle mint leaves and add Hugo, ice and a generous slice of lime to an Old Fashioned glass. While this cocktail recipe might seem extraordinarily simple, this is the best way to let the drink’s quality ingredients truly shine.
