A NEGRONI SBAGLIATO For Me, Per Favore. Why Is Everyone Suddenly Drinking It?

What is Negroni Sbagliato

There was a time when you were out and see everyone drinking Aperol Spritz; right now, another red-orange coloured drink is trending and gets its moment in the Limelight. Lo and behold, the Negroni Sbagliato!

We can thank Emma D’Arcy of House Of The Dragon for reviving this variant of a classic cocktail.

A clip of Emma D’Arcy and her onscreen frenemy Olivia Cooke discussing their go-to drinks went viral on TikTok last year when Emma smoothly uttered, “A negroni.. sbagliato.. with prosecco in it.”

Since then, everyone is drinking this cocktail.

What Is Negroni Sbagliato?

Negroni Sbagliato cocktail is a variation of the classic Negroni. To make a Negroni, you’ll need equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari. In this variation, however, the gin is replaced with prosecco.

Sbagliato is an Italian word that means ‘wrong’ or ‘mistaken’. A bar in Milan called Bar Basso claims to have invented this cocktail when the barman mistakenly put prosecco instead of gin when making a Negroni.

Negroni Sbagliato Recipe


  • 1 jigger Sweet vermouth

  • 1 jigger Prosecco
  • Orange slices
  • Ice cubes


Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the vermouth and Campari, then top with the prosecco. Stir in gently to combine. And garnish with orange slices.
