Negroni Sbagliato

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