Spritz or sangria ?

It’s summer. The temperature is scorching hot. Today, nothing was done. It’s the quiet hour. In the distance, the Mediterranean changes color. The aperitive hour approaching, one collapses in deck chairs. A pick-me-up is welcome. Spritz or sangria?

The Spritz is commonly served in the North of Italy, especially around Venice. It consists of sparkling white wine (usually Prosecco), orange liqueur (Campari, Aperol or Cynar), a splash of sparkling water, an orange slice and a green olive.

Being born in French Catalonia, I naturally tend to choose sangria over spritz. The classic sangria, not the white sangria, tinto de verano or a berries version. We make it from red wine, wine liqueur like Cointreau or Porto, fresh sliced fruits: usually orange, lemon, peach, and apple, cinnamon sticks and some sugar.
