Negroni Sbagliato Cocktail with Prosecco
Did you know ‘sbagliato’ in Italian means ‘mistaken’ or ‘bungled’. This is how the the delicious Negroni Sbagliato cocktail was invented…by mistake! A traditional Negroni is made from Campari, which is bitter tasting liqueur mixed with sweet vermouth and gin.
The Negroni Spagliato is a take on the classic, where Campai and sweet vermouth are added, however the gin is replaced with sparkling wine or prosecco. As a result, the use of prosecco will make it less alcoholic, with the bubbles adding an elegant flavour and gentle fizz as you take a sip.
As you would with a traditional Negroni, you can serve these in stem of flute glass, garnished with orange peel or grapefruit zest.
Why Add Salt To A Negroni Sbagliato?
Adding a pinch of Maldon Salt will counteract the bitter notes that a typical Negroni has, and intensifies the sweeter notes of the the Red Vermouth and Prosecco to come through.
- Ahead of preparation, keep your Campari and Red Vermouth chilled in the fridges before use.
- Add the measurements of Campari and Red Vermouth in to a champagne flute or stem glass. Add a small pinch of Maldon Salt.
- Mix well with a bar spoon until the salt has completely dissolved into the spirits.
- Top the glass with chilled prosecco.
- To serve, garnish with orange peel or grapefruit zest over ice.
