  • 1 oz elderflower syrup
  • 5 oz prosecco
  • splash of sparkling water
  • 2 mint leaves for garnish
  • lime wedge for garnish


  1. Fill a wine glass with ice cubes (about 5-6 medium ice cubes)

  2. Add elderflower syrup to the glass. Top with prosecco. Add a splash of sparkling water.

  3. Stir to combine. This is an important step - or else the syrup will stay at the bottom of the glass.

  4. Garnish with mint and lime wedge.

Recipe Notes

  • To get the exact measurements, it's best to use a shot glass to measure out the liquids.
  • This cocktail is a bit on the sweeter side due to the elderflower syrup, so if you prefer less sweet, you can start with .5-.75 oz of syrup, and add more if you'd like
  • Make sure your prosecco has been chilled in the fridge for at least a few hours. This will ensure the Hugo is extra cold (and taste better!)
  • Serving: This drink is traditionally served in a wine glass. But you can serve it in a stemless wine glass, or even highball glasses.
  • Be sure to stir the cocktail well, or else the syrup will remain at the bottom and not mix in well.
