Hugo aperitif – Rosa Alpina, Dolomites

Bring a taste of Northern Italy into your home with this aperitivo from one of our favourite mountain hideaways.  The ‘Hugo’ cocktail is named after the hotelier of beautiful Rosa Alpina in the Dolomites.  Made with sparkling wine, elderflower syrup and mint leaves this aperitif is especially refreshing in summer.

As aperitivo or a mid-day refresh, it pairs very well with the local cheeses and hearty speck.   The Hugo will have you instantly dreaming of the majestic mountains and fields covered with wildflowers!
