Sbagliato means “messed up” or “mistaken” in Italian. While the exact origins of this Negroni variation are unknown, the story is that this was simply a mistake by a bartender when they added sparkling wine instead of gin.
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
1 oz. Sparkling Wine of your choice
Add Campari and Sweet Vermouth to a glass with ice. Top with sparkling wine. That’s it!
