Negroni Sbagliato

What could be better than sitting outside sipping a light, a perfectly balanced Negroni Sbagliato cocktail before an unhurried summer night begins?

Sbagliato means “messed up” or “mistaken” in Italian. The Negroni Sbagliato is said to be the result of a busy bartender. He mistakenly using sparkling wine instead of gin in a Negroni, we think it turned out to be a pretty happy accident.

What could be better than sitting outside sipping a light, a perfectly balanced Negroni Sbagliato cocktail before an unhurried summer night begins?

Ingredients

  • 1 Part Campari
  • 1 Part Martini Rosso
  • 1 part Prosecco

Instructions

1

Combine vermouth and Campari over ice in a rocks glass and stir.

2

Top with Prosecco and garnish with an orange slice.

Wine Match

Prosecco Spumante Borgo di Sassi is ideal Negroni Sbagliato. Crisp apples, soft pear, and a bright citrus zing make it a stonking match with seafood. And at pretty much less than half the price of a bottle of traditional Champagne, it’s top value. Available from Naked Wines.

Really great cocktails are about balance, skill, and quality.  If you think about it that is parable for life, and certainly for cooking.  About 6 months ago my beautiful wife, daughter, and I went to Manhattan, and ended up at a high-end bar called “Death & Co”.   I fell in love, this was cocktail heaven.  My wife purchased their second recipe book for me called the “Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas, Evolutions” when we got home.  I learned I knew almost nothing about making a fantastic cocktail.  The great news is it is not very hard to make great ones.  I just needed an honest guide and practice.  One caveat about this book; it is written by skilled bartenders for skilled bartenders.  They have ingredients we mere mortals may never make, but it is very informative.
