Mocktail: Virgin Hugo

Virgin Hugo

The Hugo is normally a wine based cocktail that is weirdly popular in Germany, for some reason. It’s a light refreshing drink and it’s easily adapted for those of us who want something special but non-alcoholic.  It’s also very easy to prepare, all you need is a wine glass.


Ice cubes

3 cl. of elderflower cordial

9 cl. of sparkling mineral water (you can substitute a premade fizzy elderflower drink).

A few mint leaves.

Lime Juice



Crush a few mint leaves with the elderflower syrup and lime juice in the bottom of a wine glass. Add a few extra mint leaves and top up with sparkling water. Garnish with a slice of lime.
