RECIPE

Editor Recipe Notes

The Kein Hugo requires our special homemade ginger-mint syrup.
We always do the syrups for our lemonades by our own. But we really rarely do cocktails with them.

So the combination of Gin, mint, ginger, and elderflower is a fascinating one.
That’s why this drink is a real signature drink.

It is important that the syrup needs to be fresh. You can only use a syrup that is 10 days old or something like that.
The reason is that the ginger and mint are changing their flavors.

Anyway, we are serving a lot of ginger-mint lemonades, so we are always using the proper syrup =)

It is really pleasant on the tongue, and even if it does not look like a cocktail with a high ABV…. it is still a whole gin & tonic that you are drinking.
