If you’ve never had one, a spritz is a refreshing cocktail of prosecco, bitter liqueur and soda often taken before a meal in Italy. Driving a Fiat, writers Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau traveled the spritz trail in northern Italy to learn how this classic cocktail was born and how it became the symbol The good life in Italy. Their new book is “Spritz: Italy’s most iconic aperitif cocktail, with recipes.”
