Tess' Spritz of the Summer

As the days grow longer and the sun graces us with its warmth, there's nothing quite like sipping on a refreshing cocktail that captures the essence of summer. If you’re looking for something new and exciting, it's time to acquaint yourself with our Social Media Manager, Tess' favourite drink of the moment: the Hugo Spritz.

This delightful concoction is a twist on the classic Aperol Spritz, but it's lighter, more delicate, and perfect for those lazy summer afternoons. Let's dive into the world of the Hugo Spritz and discover why it's the ultimate cocktail of the season.

The Hugo Spritz has been quietly gaining popularity, and for a good reason. This cocktail is the epitome of summer in a glass. It deviates from the bitterness of Aperol and opts for a milder, more refreshing flavour profile. It also boasts a lower alcohol content, aligning perfectly with the current trend of lighter and more delicate beverages. But what truly sets the Hugo Spritz apart is its sheer prettiness – it's an Instagram-worthy drink that's as delightful to look at as it is to taste (Hence why Tess, our Social Media Manager is all about it!)

At La Maise, we believe that style is not just about what you wear but also about the experiences and moments you create. Much like Tess' favourite Hugo Spritz, our brand embodies a sense of elegance and delight, inviting you to savour life's special moments with a touch of sophistication.
