The origins of the spritz go back to the late 1800’s. The drink began in the Veneto region of Italy, which atthat time was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The world spritz is German for splash, and this name was given to the way Austrian soldiers prepared the Italian wine they were drinking. They found it too strong, and in order to make it easier to drink (more like the alcohol content of the beer they were accustomed to) they added a splash (a spritz) of still water.

Over time, the drink evolved. Still water changed to sparkling soda, which changed to prosecco. Fortified wines were added, and eventually, liqueurs such as Aperol.
