Touring the spritz trail

Hosted by

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. Behind the wheel of a Fiat, writers Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau toured the spritz trail in Northern Italy to learn how this classic cocktail was born and how it came to symbolize la dolce vita in Italy. Their new book is Spritz: Italy's Most Iconic Aperitivo Cocktail, with Recipes.
