The Negroni Sbagliato is basically a Negroni that calls for prosecco or asti spumante instead of gin. Sbagliato means "wrong" or "mistaken," as in, "I messed up and mistakenly put sparkling wine in this Negroni instead of gin."
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
- 1 ounce Campari
- 2 ounces prosecco
- Thin whole slice of orange, for garnish
Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes. Add the vermouth and Campari, then top with the prosecco; stir to combine. Garnish with the slice of orange.
