Spritz

    By

    THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THIS ICONIC ITALIAN COCKTAIL From London to Venice, New York to Milan, the spritz has become synonymous with sipping cocktails in the sunshine on long summer evenings. So it's no surprise that this iconic Italian aperitif is experiencing a revival around the world. But where did it all begin? Intrigued by the rise of the spritz, Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau set out on a road trip from the wine bars of Venice to the old gilded cafes of Turin to reveal how it evolved from a local ritual into Italy's most popular cocktail. They discover that the spritz isn't just its colourful history of prosecco, bitter liqueurs and aromatized wines, but an attitude, a custom and a way of life. In Spritz, they share the classics sampled on their journey as well as recipes from the world's most renowned bartenders. These are the very best spritzes and a window into crowded piazzas and Italian cocktail culture. With traditional, modern and experimental alternatives, a guide to building a spritz bar, and a collection of food recipes for traditional Italian snacks, happy hour starts here.
