Negroni Sbagliato

Have you ever tried a Negroni Sbagliato? We had the opportunity to sample this refreshing cocktail in Lake Como this summer. The word “sbagliato” translates to “mistake” in the Italian language.

Legend has it the “mistake” happened when Bar Basso bar owner Mirko Stocchetto was asked to make a Negroni for a customer back in the 1970s. Mirko accidentally added Prosecco instead of gin, resulting in a somewhat lighter version of the famous Italian drink.

If you like an Aperol or Campari Spritz, you’re sure to enjoy a Negroni Sbagliato at your next summer gathering! It’s the perfect middle ground between a spritz and Negroni.
