Its officially patio season, and we cant think of a better way to celebrate the longer days and warmer nights than with a fresh and fizzy drink in hand. This organic pairing is undoubtedly the reason why the spritz, a centuries-old cocktail that combines liqueur, Prosecco and soda, has gained popularity in the past few years. 

Quick and easy to prepare—even for the least mixologically inclined of us—and with a low ABV, the spritz is more versatile than it usually gets credit for. While you might spontaneously associate spritzes with bitter liqueurs, any spirit can be used in the concoction. So, if youve tried spritzes before and didnt love the bitterness, you might want to try the lighter and fresher taste of a St-Germain Hugo Spritz, crafted with St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur and Martini Prosecco. 

Spritz aficionados and spritz skeptics alike will be surprised by the natural sweetness—which comes from the St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur—of this take on the spritz. Each bottle of the French spirit contains the refreshing essence of hundreds of fresh, wild-grown elderflower blossoms, which are hand-picked in late spring, when the flavour and aroma of the flower are at their peak. 

The result is surprising and slightly sweet. It has a subtle floral aroma and notes of pear, citrus and tropical fruit as well as a hint of honeysuckle and refreshing mint. Without further ado, heres how to craft your own St-Germain Hugo Spritz at home.



  • 1.5 oz St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur 
  • 8 to 10 mint leaves
  • 2 oz Martini Prosecco
  • 2 oz soda water
  • lime wedge, for garnish
  • mint sprigs, for garnish



  • Add ice to a wine glass. 
  • Pour in St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, and add approximately 8 mint leaves. 
  • Top with Prosecco and soda water.
  • Stir to combine all ingredients. 
  • Garnish with a mint sprig and a lime wedge.


From brunch to aperitivo, the St-Germain Hugo Spritz will pair perfectly with your summer hangouts—whether you’re celebrating something special or simply enjoying the moment. Cheers!

Please drink responsibly.
