Hi There! I love me a Hugo Cocktail! This has become my favorite drink from Germany. If you are here, you have to give it a try! If you can’t get to Germany to try it, here is how you can make it at home.
Take a large wine glass, or tall rocks glass, and fill it half way with ice cubes. Add the syrup, sekt, and water to a Cocktail Shaker. Take a handful of mint leaves, and place them in the open palm of your hand. Gently clap your hands together while holding the mint leaves; this releases the flavor and wonderful smell from the leaves. Drop the mint into your glass, pour the sekt and syrup mixture into the glass, and serve. Drink up and enjoy!
