The Italian cocktail Spritz has become fashionable all over Europe and it is on the menu in an increasing number of venues in Madrid. This cult Italian aperitif with orange notes is made with Prosecco, Aperol or Campari and sparkling water. It is perfect for beating the heat on a terrace on a summer evening.

The history of this drink dates back to the 19th century when soldiers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire dominated the north of the Italian Peninsula. They found the wines of the region too strong and so they decided to dilute them with soda, calling them “spritz”, which comes from the German “spritzen” meaning “to splash”. Such was its success that it was soon consumed throughout Italy, particularly as an aperitif.
