Spritz cocktail traces its roots back to the 19th century in northeastern Italy, where it gained popularity as a refreshing aperitif. Originally crafted as a way to dilute the local wine, the classic Spritz evolved with the addition of sparkling water and bitter liqueurs like Aperol or Campari, resulting in its distinctive bittersweet profile. Over time, it has become a beloved Italian tradition, enjoyed for its vibrant flavors and light, sociable character.
