Doesn’t anything with cucumber instantly seem a whole lot healthier? We love cucumber in our green smoothies, so why not add them to a Bubbly Friday recipe and pretend like we’ve come up with something healthy? Well, that’s exactly what we did! But seriously, joke aside, we actually love this “Fitness Frenzy” version of a Hugo (one of our all-time favorite summer drinks) and think the cucumber adds a certain twist that the regular Hugo can’t compete with. Another plus: Cucumber has a cooling effect (that’s why we put those slices on our eyes) and this drink is the perfect companion on hot summer nights.
What you’ll need:
– a bottle of chilled prosecco (or white wine & a bit of sparkling water)
– elderflower syrup
– sliced persian mini cucumbers
– fresh mint
– ice cubes
Wash and slice the mini cucumbers, and prepare a few branches of mint. Fill each glass with a bit of elderflower syrup and add ice – then fill glasses with prosecco (or white wine and sparkling water). Throw in a few slices of cucumber and a bit of fresh mint, and you’re ready to go! So much better than the gym, right?
