The Hugo Pitcher Cocktail

This classic drink from the north of Italy is perfect for hot summer BBQ’s in the backyard. Though the drink is typically made with mint and lime, we find that basil and lemon play just as nicely with the floral notes of the elderflower - we consider it our Giadzy spin on the classic!

Note: This recipe fits perfectly in a standard-sized pitcher. For filling a punch bowl or drink dispenser, consider doubling the recipe!
