Negroni Sbagliato – Where Sparkling Wine Replaces Gin

The Negroni Sbagliato or simply Sbagliato is a variation of the Negroni where we substitute gin wine sparkling white wine, such as champagne or cava. The result is a rich cocktail that is lighter than the original version.

The Sbagliato was created by Mirko Stocchetto at the Basso bar in Milan in the 1960s, and the name in Spanish means wrong or incorrect. We doubt if he created it by mistake, but be that as it may, it is a very interesting cocktail that is usually served in a short glass.
