Recipe: Negroni Sbagliato

Recipe: Negroni Sbagliato

The Negroni Sbagliato is the featured cocktail of Ep39: He was a ROGUE Scholar (aka St. Vincent of Saragossa). Shockingly, this is the first Campari cocktail I have tried that I actually liked!

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.  

Ingredients: 

1 oz. Campari 

1 oz. Sweet Vermouth 

1 oz. Sparkling Wine of your choice 

Directions:

Add Campari and Sweet Vermouth to a glass with ice. Top with sparkling wine. That’s it!  

Enjoy!
