If you don’t already know, Negroni sbagliato is a variation of the famous Negroni cocktail. The name translates to “negroni mistaken” and supposedly refers to one thing — cutting the bitters out of your life. I’m not really sure where that comes from; I just know that Emma Darcy loves them. They’re pretty fantastic, so I’ll also tip my hat to her choice of drink.
Anyway, sbagliato is just as easy to make as a negroni. You simply replace the gin with sparkling wine and call it a day. The result will be a bubbly drink that’s perfect for brunch or any other time you want to celebrate life.
Do you like a drink with a bitter, citrusy, herbal kick? Then this drink may be for you! It has the flavors of Campari liqueur, which contribute to its bitterness. The ingredients are simple: 3 ounces of crisp white wine (such as Prosecco), 1.5 ounces each of Campari, and sweet vermouth.
There’s no hard science behind Emma’s drink of choice, but there is a bit of history: the Negroni was created in Florence during the early 1900s when a group of Italian aristocrats got together to drink. One particularly spirited girl named Bianca Negri decided she wanted to join in on the fun, so she asked for a “Negroni,” which was then equal parts Gin and Campari made with soda water and orange bitters. An abridged version of this story appeared in The New York Times in 2015.
