About the Recipe
In 2005, Roland Gruber, a bartender from the commune of Naturns in the Tyrol region of northern Italy, set out to craft a lighter alternative to the Venetian Spritz. A tremendously popular drink throughout Italy, Austria and southern Germany, especially during summer, the Hugo’s distinctive and refreshing flavor is derived from elderflower liqueur and fresh mint.
