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.

  1. Ahead of preparation, keep your Campari and Red Vermouth chilled in the fridges before use.
  2. Add the measurements of Campari and Red Vermouth in to a champagne flute or stem glass. Add a small pinch of Maldon Salt.
  3. Mix well with a bar spoon until the salt has completely dissolved into the spirits.
  4. Top the glass with chilled prosecco.
  5. To serve, garnish with orange peel or grapefruit zest over ice.
