Spritz-style cocktails are popular for their crisp, refreshing taste. The bartenders at Campiello came up with this fun take on a Negroni variety that was supposedly made by mistake in Milan when a busy bartender accidentally poured prosecco into a Negroni instead of gin. The drink was dubbed a sbagliato, which means “messed up” or “mistake” in Italian. Now, we have the recipe so you can try this Italian cocktail at home.
What you’ll need:
- 1 ounces Montanaro 6 p.m. liqueur (any similar Italian bitter aperitif, such as Campari, Aperol or Aperitivo Cappalletti)
- 1 ounces Montanaro Rosso Vermouth de Torino (can substitute with any sweet vermouth, such as Carpano Antica Formula, Cocchio Vermouth di Torino or Martini & Rossi Rosso Vermouth)
- 3 ounces prosecco
- 1 Castelvetrano olive
- 1 orange swath or slice
- Add Montanaro 6 p.m. liqueur, sweet vermouth and prosecco to an empty wine glass.
- Add one scoop of ice so the glass is about three quarters full and stir briefly with a bar spoon to combine all ingredients.
- Garnish with a twisted orange swath and Castelvetrano olive on top of the ice.
