The Spritz was born in the distant 1700-1800 during the Austrian dominion in the Lombardy-Veneto region. Originally, it was obtained by combining water and sparkling wine. It is thanks to the Austrian soldiers that today we can taste this cocktail, as they have spread this new drink throughout Italy.

Today, however, the recipe has changed slightly. In fact, it is possible to make the Spritz in different ways and variations: with Aperol (the most popular), with Campari, with Select ...

The recipe for Spritz Aperol


  • 1/3 of Aperol
  • 1/3 of Prosecco
  • 1/3 of Seltzer Water (replaceable with Sparkling Water)
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 slice of Orange

  3. Add 1/3 of Aperol
  4. Add 1/3 of Prosecco
