How to make a Negroni Sbagliato

Updated: Mar 14

All the best drinks begin with a good story, and the Negroni Sbagliato is no different. It all started in Milan, when a bartender made a mistake.



The story of the Negroni Spagliato began when a bartender in Milan, who was making a Negroni, accidentally grabbed a bottle of sparkling wine instead of gin. This mistake gave birth to the Negroni Sbagliato, due to the fact that sbagliato means "mistaken" in Italian. Regardless of its origin, it's quite delicious! The Prosecco lightens it up a bit, which makes it a perfect afternoon cocktail for those days when you're feeling particularly Italian. Read on to learn how to make a perfect Negroni Spagliato cocktail!
