Gin, Rosso Vermouth and Sparkling Wine. Some say the Negroni is fool-proof. We'll we sure are glad someone buggered this one up! The Negroni Sbagliato (Italian for 'mistaken') came into existence in Milan in 1972 when a busy bartender, by the name of Mirko Stocchetto, accidentally added sparkling wine to a negroni instead of gin. The result? A wonderfully bitter and refreshing spritz you'll be mistakenly making time and time again.
This one in particular has been dubbed the E-Town Mistake by Sherwood Cafe & Bar in Victoria, BC.
E-Town Mistake (Negroni Sbagliato)
Rosso Vermouth / Cocktails
When the classic Americano cocktail went joyfully wrong. A true treat on a sunny day by Jane Allen at Sherwood Cafe & Bar.
We opt for an all BC version of this classic, but feel free to use any sparkling wine you have and the traditional campari. No matter where you are though, support local ad
In an ice filled highball glass, add Rosso and Red Amaro. Top with Sparkling Wine and gently stir to incorporate. Garnish with a half orange wheel and enjoy!
