Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz with a Lemon

Aperol Spritz


Spritz was born during the period of the Habsburg domination in Veneto in the 1800s, under the Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia. The soldiers, but also the various merchants, diplomats and employees of the Habsburg Empire in Veneto became quickly accustomed to drinking local wine in the taverns, but they were not familiar with the wide variety of wines from the Veneto, and the alcohol content was higher than they were accustomed to. The newcomers started to ask the local hosts to spray a drop of water into the wine (spritzen, in German) to make the wines lighter; the real original spritz was composed of sparkling white wine or red wine diluted with fresh water. Aperol Spritz is typically served in a unique wineglass, with a shape that resembles that of the Aperol bottle turned upside-down, was designed in 2016 by Luca Trazzi, a Venetian designer.
