Negroni Sbagliato is a variation of the traditional Negroni but with dry sparkling wine instead of gin. It's a delicious and simple way to enjoy this classic cocktail. It looks different from your typical Negroni because it has bubbles! But don't let that fool you—this drink packs a punch.
The Negroni is one of the best-loved cocktails in the world, and it's easy to see why. The combination of Campari, sweet vermouth, and gin in equal parts is complex and exciting while still balanced.
The Negroni Sbagliato (Italian for "neglected") takes all the great flavors of its predecessor and adds bubbles for a refreshing twist.
What the heck is a Negroni Sbagliato?
You've probably heard of the Negroni, that iconic Italian cocktail made with gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. It's served in many bars as an aperitif, but if you're anything like me, you enjoy it as an after-dinner drink to cap off a meal.
The Negroni Sbagliato recipe is a drink similar to the original but made with Prosecco instead of gin.
Sbagliato means "mistaken" in Italian; this drink was accidentally invented when someone accidentally put Prosecco in their cocktail instead of gin. Since then, it's become one of our most popular cocktails and is perfect for these hot summer days or an easy drink to make at home.
This drink had an American social media pop-culture moment in October of 2022 when actor Emma D'arcy shared Olivia Cooke, their favorite drink. On the HBO Max TikTok account, Cooke asked D'arcy about their drink of choice in a behind-the-scenes interview. They shared love for "a Negroni Sbagliato...with Processo," and the rest is history.
