FAQ's

ORIGINS_HISTORY

What is the origin of the Hugo cocktail?

The Hugo cocktail originates from the South Tyrol region in Italy. It was created in the early 2000s by Roland Gruber as a refreshing alternative to the Spritz Veneziano. It quickly gained popularity across Italy and later in other parts of Europe.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What are some garnishing tips for a Hugo?

To garnish a Hugo, add a few fresh mint leaves on top for extra aroma and a slice of lemon as a decorative and flavorful touch. Some also prefer to add a sprig of fresh mint to the glass to enhance the drink's visual appeal and scent.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve a Hugo?

A Hugo is best served in a large wine glass to accommodate the volume and the garnishes. It's important to serve it cold, so make sure to fill the glass with ice before adding the ingredients. Stir gently to combine the flavors.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute anything for the elderflower liqueur in a Hugo?

If elderflower liqueur is not available, you can substitute it with elderflower cordial or syrup, though you may need to adjust the sweetness accordingly. If you're looking for an alcohol-free version, the elderflower syrup is a perfect choice.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of a Hugo compare to other popular cocktails?

With an alcohol content of 7.95%, the Hugo cocktail is relatively light in comparison to more potent cocktails like a Margarita or Martini. It's closer in alcohol content to a Spritz Veneziano, making it a good choice for those seeking a less strong alcoholic beverage.
