Austrian word of the Week – Gespritzer
“Es wird a Wein sein, und mir wer’n nimmer sein.” — Hans Moser & Paul Hörbinger
Gespritzer: is actually a refreshing summer drink of white wine mixed with sparkling water but it is also used for someone who’s had maybe one too many of those white wine Gespritzer with a bit more wine than sparkling water.
Delve more into the Austrian creative side with their rant words: “Der Kleine Wappler” by Astrid Wintersberger, Residenz Verlag — book is completely in Austrian language.
