Negroni Sbagliato

Have you ever really bungled a cocktail? I mean, really screwed it up to the point where you had to toss it in the sink? With the Negroni Sbagliato, you can screw up a drink and yet still make something delicious. You see, sbagliato, in Italian, means "bungled" or "mistaken."

Remember, a traditional Negroni is made from Campari, the bitter liqueur; sweet vermouth; and gin. The "broken" Negroni, or Negroni Sbagliato, starts with Campari and sweet vermouth. In place of gin, though, the Sbagliato version uses sparkling wine. Prosecco should be just fine here, so don't feel the need to spend extra for Champagne

In the same way a traditional Negroni can be either built over ice or served up in a stem glass, the Sbagliato can also be served on the rocks or up, in a champagne flute.
