Last Sunday I was at a bbq. A friend and I were chatting about “negroni”. I mentioned to him that I often drink it with some brut champagne. He said that I was doing something close to a “negroni sbagliato”. I actually never heard of it and he explained to me that is just a negroni which has champagne instead of the gin.

I went back home and gave it a shot. It is pretty good and definitely easier than the original version.


1/3 Campari
1/3 Gin
1/3 red vermouth (I use Martini & Rossi)
Negroni “sbagliato”:

1/3 Campari
1/3 Champagne Brut
1/3 red vermouth
Random Factoid: Campari has been the world’s higher selling bitter for 70 years! wow!
