Though the exact origins of the spritz cocktail may be unknown, there are certainly some stories circulating. Perhaps the most compelling, and entertaining, backstory is that soldiers passing through the Veneto region of Italy weren’t used to the strength of the region’s wine. Inevitably, the soldiers would request the same addition to their drink from the bar keeps. A spray of water. Or as they might say in German, a spritzen.
What started as a way to temper wine with high alcohol content turned into a worldwide favorite, and the perfect cocktail for summer. There’s more to spritz recipes than just an Aperol Spritz while you’re out to brunch.
