My favourite summer drinks

I’m back with a summery topic!
Sorry that I didn’t post anything for so long.
In this post I wanna share with you some drinks I know from the time when I was working in a Bar and which are quite popular in Switzerland.
I usually don’t drink strong alcoholic cocktails, I prefer white whine or prosecco instead.
Here are a few easy recipes of my favourite light summer drinks! Enjoy!

HUGO
fresh, light, sweet, yummy!

Dash of elderflower sirup
2/3 Prosecco
1/3 Sparkling water
Garnish with mint leaves, lime slices (squeeze them in) and icecubes

GESPRITZTER SÜSS/SPRITZER SWEET

2/3 White whine
1/3 Sprite
Garnish with a slice of orange, icecubes

APEROL SPRITZ

4cl Aperol
1dl Prosecco
Dash of sparkling water

MARA
sweet, fruity, fresh

4cl/dash Passionfruit syrup
1/4 Passionfruit (seeds)
1dl Prosecco
Dash of sparkling water
Garnish with a slice of orange, mint and icecubes

MOJITO
fresh, strong, sweet, sour

4dl White Rum
1Tablepoon Brown Sugar
1/2 Lime (sliced and squeezed)
4-5 Leaves of mint (missing in this picture)
tiny dash of Sugar Syrup if you like it sweet

Mix all of this well and crush it with a mortar.
Fill up with sparkling water and ice. Crushed ice is perfect, also works with normal icecubes (when adding a bit more water)

I’m sure you’re going to love this!
