happy drinks: the hugo cocktail

You know I love a good cocktail, especially when happy hour at home is calling. Bring on the summer concoctions for this gal who loves any type of spritzer! I first fancied the Hugo cocktail once I stumbled upon this refresher on our rendezvous to Italy a few years ago and crafted one for myself this past weekend to enjoy… it’s super easy to assemble AND would be a great drink for any summer soiree, too:
