There is a national drink in Italy and its the Spritz! Or as all itialians say (because they add the sound 'a' to the end of everything...) SPRITZ'A!
Its an amazing magical drink that I will be bringing back with me to my home. Yes, in america there is the wine spritzer, which is what this is....but calling it a Spritz or Spritz'a and knowing how to make it in the proper Italian style is what I'm talking about here.
Sparkling white wine (proseco)
Campari (or other bitters)
optional - slice of orange or lime and a green olive
