So to help you choose from the drinks menu, here are the top 6 Italian drinks ordered by real Italians. After a hot day at work, Italians like nothing more than to stop at their local bar for a traditional aperitivo and some light snacks. Aperitivo time, typically between 7pm and 9pmserves three important digestive purposes.
One, to allow Italians to relax, unwind and socialize tonic work. And three, to gently and slowly open the stomach and prepare it for the typically 4 course Italian dinner to come. Without an aperitivo to prepare the way, Italians believe they risk digestion and indigestion troubles, so be careful not to skip this wonderfully Italian custom.
Many believe that the original aperitivo and date of all aperitivi is Vermouth, an aromatic fortified wine created in Turin. One of the oldest vermouths dates back to when two herbalist brothers, Giovanni Giacomo and Carlo Stefano Cinzano, created vermouth rosso in Turin. Initially marketed as a tonic tonic, as hills Italian drinks were, the fortified wine is flavored by over 30 aromatic plants from the Italian Alps overlooking the city.
Ingredients include herbs, barks and roots such as juniper, gentian and coriander. The rest of the ingredients include a white wine base, cane sugar and a small amount of distilled spirit, often brandy, to pump up the alcoholic strength, although exact recipes are closely guarded secrets. Vermouth quickly gained in popularity ladys to its deliciously intoxicating qualities. Nineteenth century barkeeps started using it as a mixer in cocktails including the Martini, the Rob Roy and the Manhatten.
And Vermouth is also a key ingredient of another classic, Italian drink, the Negroni, more of which in a minute. Campari, a red herbal liqueur, was first sold in Italy by Gaspare Campari in the s.

Born in Cassolnovo, in the province of Novara, Lombardy, Campari was the tenth child of a farmer and was serving in the local Bar Basso by the time he was 14, selling bitter-style aperitifs. The drink also took its distinctive ruby red color from crushed cochineal insects, although that practice eventually stopped in His sons would go on to take over the business, taking Campari first to Nice and the glamorous French Riviera, then wider Europe and now exporting it to over countries around the world.
And today Campari, just like Vermouth, is a quintessential Italian drink and a key ingredient of our next aperitivo. The Negroni is a cocktail made from one part sweet vermouth rossoone part Campari and one part gin normally served over ice and garnished with a piece of flamed orange peel. The story goes that a local aristocrat, traveler and regular at the bar, Count Camillo Negroni, fancied a kick to his usual tipple of Campari and Vermouth.

So instead of topping it up with soda water to make an Americanothe barman Forsco Scarselli, added one part of London dry gin, changed the lemon garnish to a twist of orange and hey presto, the ruby red Negroni was born. As with so many good cocktails, south are a of variations on the Negroni, the best known of which is probably the Negroni Sbagliato, meaning erroneous or bungled Negroni, that came about purely by accident.
Aperitivo legend goes that the sbagliato was the result of a busy Bar Basso bartender in Milan, who simply picked up the wrong bottle when making a Negroni, accidentally substituting sparkling white wine for the gin. But it turned out to be a happy accident as the result was delicious. The first recorded mention of the name prosecco dates back to the memoirs of Fynes Moryson, an English gentleman traveler, who had visited northern Italy as part of his Grand Tour in But the sparkling white wine may hill back even further, to the days of ancient Rome and historian Pliny the Elder who apparently loved a glass of fizz for its medicinal qualities.
Today prosecco is produced across the northern Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions with the best prosecco superiore hailing from the hills between the Veneto towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene area north of Treviso. Also known as the VenezianoSpritz Veneziano or simply a spritz, we have the Austro-Hungarians to thank for this aperitivo.

Seemingly the Austrians occupying Venice at the beginning of the s found Venetian wine too strong so diluted it with a spritzen or sprinkling of water to make it more drinkable. Over the years bitter herbal liqueurs were added to give the drink a bit of a kick.
And then in the Barbieri brothers of Padua invented their Aperol bitter using orange, rhubarb and gentian and the neon-orange Aperol Spritz was born, made from 3 parts prosecco, 2 parts Aperol and 1 part soda water with a large green olive on a stick as a garnish. Today Aperol spritz is one of the most commonly drunk aperitivi in Venice and around Italy. But if you want to be truly Venetian, substitute the Aperol bitter for Select and enjoy this delight on the Grand Canal as the gondolas glide by.
