Meaning "messed up" or "mistaken" Negroni, the sbagliato is Negroni's bubbly, fizzy cousin.
Legend has it that Negroni Sbagliato was invented by accident. During a busy evening in 1972, a bartender at Bar Basso in Milano accidentally added sparkling wine instead of gin to a Negroni. Fortunately, the variation turned out to be pleasantly refreshing and has grown to be one of the most popular Italian cocktails in the world. It's ideal for those who want to enjoy a few "bubbles" without having to forget the classic sharp Negroni taste they know and love.
