Cocktail folklore has it that this drink, the Negroni Sbagliato, is a mistake or messed up (aka sbagliato) take on the classic cocktail the Negroni. Whereas the Negroni is a mix of gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari cocktail, it's said that the owner and head bartender at Milan's Bar Basso created the Negroni Sbagliato when he used brut sparkling wine instead of gin.
However, it went down, it's forever written into the cocktail history books, and once of our favorite classic Italian cocktails we love introducing our guests to for aperitivo (happy hour) during our boutique group trips to Italy!
Place ice in a rocks glass and add all the liquor and stir. Top with an orange twist and serve.
