Comment:

Basically the same as a Veneziano Spritz but with equal proportions wine to Italian red bitter liqueur, we like to further distinguish the Bicicletta from the spritz by serving it with less volume in a tall slim highball glass rather than the larger glassware associated with spritz. Much more appropriate for the ride home.

About:

Bicicletta (Italian for bicycle) is another name for Veneziano Spritz and is one of many examples of regional differences across Italy in the name of what is essentially same drink. The name is said to have originated due to old men wobbling home of their bikes after an evening of Biciclettas with their friends.
