Negroni Sbagliato – Your New Favorite Negroni!
Last week, I told you that instead of drinking champagne at midnight for New Year’s Eve, we made sparkling wine cocktails all night long. One of those was this Grapefruit Mimosa and a French 75 Cocktail and other one was the cocktail that I bring you today, the Negroni Sbagliato.
As much as loved the other cocktails we made that night, this is the one that we made two of. Yep, we went back for seconds with this one!
You might be wondering what in the world Sbagliato means. I know I was. It means broken or messed up or mistaken. In this case we are being messed up by using sparkling wine instead of gin! Now, I am a huge gin lover, but this negroni was amazing! A typical Negroni is made with gin, vermouth and Campari. This broken Negroni is made with sparkling wine, vermouth, and Campari.
So Easy to Make a Negroni
This has such a pretty color, and is so festive with the sparkling wine, this Negroni Sbagliato would also be wonderful for Valentine’s Day! I found this recipe at Imbibe. If you love Negronis, I also found 8 more variations from Saveur magazine.
- 1 ounce sparkling wine
- 1 ounce Campari
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- orange peel for garnish
- Fill a rocks glass with ice. Combine the Campari and Sweet Vermouth and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish with an orange twist.
