Classic Spritz Cocktail Recipe

The worst Spritz I ever had was Venice. Naturally being the quintessential cocktail of Venice, I must enjoy one while eating cicchetti by the canals. Unfortunately all of Venice is a tourist trap (It’s still beautiful though) and every spritz I ordered tasted tasted just as bad. I had never actually had a spritz before but before I go on vacation I like to do a little research on any cool bars to seek out or any regional spirts or cocktails to try. So I got multiple spritz’s and they all sucked.

Determined not to let that ruin it for me I googled the recipe when I got home and found the official recipe off their website is pretty spot on. The spritz is a great little drink (If you make it yourself), and garnished with an orange slice and green olive, it makes a nice brunch cocktail.
