Campiello Spritz

An Italian bartender’s happy accident now is a light, refreshing cocktail.

BY July 16, 2020

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. 


Campiello Spritz

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


  1. Add Montanaro 6 p.m. liqueur, sweet vermouth and prosecco to an empty wine glass. 
  2. Add one scoop of ice so the glass is about three quarters full and stir briefly with a bar spoon to combine all ingredients.
  3. Garnish with a twisted orange swath and Castelvetrano olive on top of the ice.
