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.


Negroni Sbagliato Recipe

The Sbagliato is less alcoholic than the original Negroni as sparkling wine replaces the gin in it.
Prep Time8 mins

  • 1 ounce Vermouth

  • Add the vermouth and the Campari and stir.

The Negroni Sbagliato can also be made with champagne or cava. With both a great flavor is obtained. Of course, champagne increases the cost. But prosecco or cava are already very good.
