The spritz is an historical alcoholic drink from the days of the Austro-Hungarian domination in the Veneto (1800) .
Over the years there have been several changes made to make a real cocktail. Over the years the drink has quickly spread into other cities of the Veneto

Spritz with Campari or Cynar has a more bitter taste and they are served with a slice of lemon. Spritz made with Aperol(a low alcohol bitter) or Select is somewhat sweeter and served with orange.
Take care that the wine and the water are chilled well....
