The word spritz comes from the German ‘spritzen’, which means ‘to splash’. Our unique St‑Germain Spritz combines St‑Germain Elderflower Liqueur with Prosecco and sparkling water.
Legend has it that spritzes first started in the 1800s in the Veneto region of northern Italy. Soldiers found Italian wines too strong, so they would add water to dilute their drinks. The St‑Germain Elderflower Spritz is a fabulously modern French twist on the European classic.
Selecting the right glassware will make all the difference – opt for a large wine glass with plenty of room for ice, or you can further elevate your cocktail with an effortlessly chic St‑Germain Spritz highball glass.
