Elderflower Gin Spritz (The Hugo)

by bhavnaj90
Elderflower Gin Spritz

This Elderflower gin spritz is inspired by the Hugo, an Italian cocktail or appertivo rather that’s popular in North Italy. It’s so easy to make but incredibly refreshing. It’s goes down almost too easily so drink with caution! If you don’t have access to Fever Tree Elderflower tonic, you can always replace with Elderflower cordial or Elderflower liqueur. If using Elderflower cordial then dilute with water and add in the same amount. But if you’re using Elderflower liqueur then just use 30ml/3cc or 1oz of the liqueur.
