Negroni Sbagliato

The Negroni Sbagliato is a delightful variation of the classic Negroni cocktail. Instead of gin, it features sparkling wine, typically Prosecco, Campari, and sweet vermouth.

"Sbagliato" in Italian means "mistaken" or "wrong," and this cocktail earned its name because it was created by accident when a bartender used sparkling wine instead of gin in a Negroni.

The result is a lighter, bubbly, and slightly sweeter version of the classic Negroni. It offers a delightful twist on the original, making it a favorite for those who enjoy a sparkling and refreshing cocktail.



  1. Add the Campari and sweet vermouth to a mixing glass filled with ice, and stir until well-chilled.
  2. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice, or serve up in a Champagne flute without ice (optional).
  3. Top with prosecco.
  4. Garnish with an orange peel.
