So, what is a Negroni Sbagliato?
According to Bon Appetit, the classic Negroni cocktail is a 1:1:1 mix of gin, vermouth and Campari. The Sbagliato marks a variation of the drink. "Sbagliato" is the Italian word for "bungled" or "mistaken," according to Serious Eats.
So, a Negroni Sbagliato typically replaces the gin with a sparkling wine, such as Prosecco.
If that sounds delicious to you, you're not the only one.
