Any suggestions for a non-alcoholic pre-dinner drink in Italy?

Jump to last reply

My DH and I depart for Italy (Rome, Florence and Venice!) in 3 weeks! This may seem like a silly question but I'm wondering so I thought I'd ask.

I know my DH will enjoy tasting many of the wines of Italy and we'll both love sitting outdoors in various piazza's relaxing and taking in "La Dolce Vita." but I don't drink alcohol and am wondering if any of you have any suggestions for something different I might enjoy drinking while relaxing in a cafe or enoteca. In Mexico, I'd order a virgin pina-colada and at home in the States, I usually just have club soda with lemon and ice. I suppose I could just do aqua frizzante(?)but that gets a bit boring as a before dinner drink when it's all I'll be drinking with my meals. By the way, is asking for ice and lemon with water as frowned on in Italy as it was in France?

Any ideas?
