Rita’s Italian Ice

Rita’s Italian Ice

Coachella Valley Did You Know? The Rita’s Italian Ice is coming to the Desert!

A Genuinely Cool History

As it turns out, people have been enjoying water ice for centuries. This cool treat’s heritage can be traced back to Ancient Rome and Greece where, it is said, people would infuse handfuls of snow from Mount Etna with wines and syrups as a special delicacy. In fact, Sicily is often cited as the birthplace of modern water ice as far as the Western world is concerned. Interestingly, the flavors once preferred in the western part of Sicily are still among the most popular today: coffee and lemon.
