Pink Hugo Spritz, Sacha Served What

Make this pretty Pink Hugo Spritz for an easy yet refreshing and show stopping cocktail. Garnish with mint and strawberries because, why not?

The classic hugo spritz is a take on the common Italian spritz, made with Aperol, except it replaces the apertif with elderflower liqueur. For anyone who loves elderflower, like I do, this one’s for you!

For this pink version, I chose to use a pink sparkling rosé and replace a lime twist with strawberries. It is Valentine’s Day, after all.

You can use prosecco or champagne for your Pink Hugo Spritz, it’s completely up to you. And you can replace the strawberries with raspberries, if that’s what you prefer or if that’s what you have on hand.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Elderflower Liqueur – You can find this at any liquor store! St. Germain is my favorite for a hugo spritz.
  • Club Soda – Any sparkling water is just fine!
  • Sparkling Rosé – Prosecco, champagne, or any pink sparkling wine works here, depending on what you like. I used a bottle of Moet we received as a gift, and it was delicious!
  • Fresh Mint – Basil could also work here, but I prefer mint.
  • Strawberries – Raspberries would be an excellent replacement, if need be.
