Holiday Cocktail Recipe: Negroni Sbagliato

Back when Mad Men was on, my husband and I tried out a number of classic cocktails: the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan, the Negroni. I loved the idea of having my go-to drink be a classic cocktail, the only problem was ... I hated all of them.

Enter the Negroni Sbagliato.

"Sbagliato" means mistaken, wrong, or erroneous. So basically, a Negroni Sbagliato is a not-quite-right Negroni. Instead of gin, it has prosecco. Huge improvement! Here's my super easy recipe for a delicious spin on a classic cocktail.

 

Negroni Sbagliato

1 part Campari

1 part sweet vermouth

1 part prosecco

 

Mix the Campari and the sweet vermouth with ice in a rocks glass. Pour in the prosecco. If you're feeling fancy, finish your cocktail off with a sliver of aromatic orange peel. Enjoy!
