{The Hugo Cocktail} The White Spritz Recipe

One of my favorite moments during my recent trip to the Amalfi coast was in the charming hillside town of Ravello.

I spent a lazy day enjoying the Hotel Caruso, getting lost on the property, admiring the stunning views, and having a really perfect summery poolside. But the one thing that has stuck with me was this twist on a White Wine Spritzer concocted by the hotel’s head barman, Danilo.

Also known as a white Spritz because, well, it’s white, here a classic elderflower Spritz gets a handful of botanicals added for a super simple summer cocktail you could sip straight until Fall! It is called the {The Hugo Cocktail} The White Spritz recipe.
