Today’s Happy Hour: Negroni Sbagliato

A Happy Accident of Campari, Vermouth and Wine

By UrbanDaddy Staff ·
They say the Negroni Sbagliato was a mistake.

The product of a Milan bartender accidentally adding sparkling wine to a Negroni in place of gin.

The name itself even translates to “wrong Negroni,” but take a sip and you’ll see that it’s actually very, very right. It’s more like a wine-laced Americano than a traditional Negroni, and something to employ during long brunches or whenever life requires an aperitif.

Thank you for your service, mistaken bartender guy.

Negroni Sbagliato

1 oz Campari
1 oz sweet vermouth
1 oz sparkling wine

Add Campari and vermouth to an ice-filled rocks glass. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with an orange peel.
