History of spritz cocktail drinks

What is spritz and where it is originated? Spritz cocktails were invented in the 19th century by an Italian bartender who wanted to make his wine more palatable. The spritzer became popular among American tourists who visited Italy during World War II, and it spread across Europe as well. It wasn’t until recently that spritzes have gained popularity among younger drinkers thanks to social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest where you can find hundreds of pictures showing off these delicious drinks!

How does spritz taste?

Some people say spritz tastes like a glassful of fruit juice mixed with gin or vodka – this is because there are many types such as orange blossom watermelon spritz (which uses fresh watermelon citrusy grapefruit spritz), apple spritz (which uses applesauce instead of sugar syrup) and cherry spritz (made with fresh cherries). Spritzes tend to be lighter than other cocktails because they’re made from white wine or prosecco rather than red wine, which can make them easier on the stomach too!

How do you spritz a cocktail?

To make spritzes, you need three ingredients: sparkling water, a sweetener such as simple syrup or liqueur-like Campari; and an alcoholic spirit base like gin, vodka, rum, tequila, bourbon, brandy, cognac, Armagnac, sherry port, vermouth, scotch, whisky. The proportions depend on what type of drink it is – for example, if you want to make a spritz using white wine, you would mix two ounces of wine with one ounce each of sparkling water and simple syrup.

How to drink spritz cocktails responsibly

Like any other alcoholic drink, it’s important to drink spritzes responsibly. This means knowing your limit and not drinking too much. It’s also a good idea to alternate spritz drinks with non-alcoholic ones to stay hydrated. Finally, never drive after drinking spritz cocktails – even if you feel like you’re below the legal limit!

What spritz cocktail drinks can I make?

You can spritz almost any kind of alcohol – even beer! Try spritzing your favorite drink with a little bit of soda water for something refreshing and new. Some popular spritzes include the Aperol spritz (made from prosecco), Campari spritz (gin or vodka mixed with grapefruit liqueur), and Shandy Beer Spritzer (a mix between lemonade and beer).

How to store spritz cocktails at home

When you’re making spritzes in bulk, it’s best to use freshly squeezed fruit juice so that they don’t have time to go bad before being consumed by guests. You should also keep them cool not chilled too cold with plenty of ice. If you’re not serving them right away, put them in a squeeze bottle or spritzer to keep the bubbles intact.

Now that you know everything there is to know about spritz cocktails, it’s time to get mixing! Experiment with different ingredients and proportions to create your unique recipes, and enjoy sipping on these delicious drinks all summer long!
