Gazzosa's history

Gazzosa is a sweetened water,
flavored and slightly carbonated, whose name comes from its own feature, the
gas. In the past - as fizzy, flavored and consumed on special occasions - it
was called "The Poor man's Champagne", bacause of the bubbles, reminiscent of

From the evidence collected, since
the nineteenth century until the last decades of the twentieth there has been a
special way to prepare gazzosa in Tessin, now abandoned: to obtain gas through
the natural fermentation of a sweetend liquid, a syroup made of lemon, various
flavors and water (the similar process used with grape must or apple must).
That was the way to get a homemade gazzosa, or "The Poor man's Champagne", due
to the natural fermentation.
