Spritz the venetian aperitif

Da Venicewiki, il wiki di Venezia

The 'Spritz' is a typical Venetian cocktail made with a good portion of white wine, a strong dose of Aperol or Bitter, slightly diluted with a little part of water, preferably a spray soda, if you also added small olive put in vials in toothpicks and an orange slice against the edge of the cup, it becomes a feast for the eyes and the throat.

The choice of a bitter rather than the other depends on personal taste, respectively, more sweet in the first case, decidedly more male in the second.
The Venetians, great travelers, they brought with them the desire to drink it Spritz even when they are away from home . In this way all the resorts affected by the Venetians, are rarely to serve a great spritz, to just name it.
Recently, the bitter manufacturers suited to prepare our favorite drink is indulged to produce detailed advertising campaigns on spritz, so much so that it has become a national fashion drink in the company, before descending into the ballroom.
