THE SPRITZ COCKTAIL'S HISTORY
The Spritz was invented in the 1800s when the Hapsburgs ruled over Venice. The various Hapsburg soldiers, merchants, and diplomats were not used to the higher alcohol content of the local wine from Veneto and so asked for a spritzen, or splash, of water to be added. The original Spritz was sparkling white or red wine diluted with water.
With the growing popularity of aperitivo amari the Spritz gradually developed into the smashable summer sensation we know today as a mix of aperitivo bitter, sparkling wine, and a dash of soda.
This variation preserves the elements of the classic spritz, but reintroduces them through alternate ingredients: the wine and spirit coming through the fortified Økar Tropic mistelle, the bitterness and bubbles coming from the tonic, and bright citrus pervading all elements.
