Cocktail History

The Negroni Sbagliato, (pronounced sba-yah-to) aka the Broken Negroni, is a spin-off the classic Negroni and is the perfect brunch cocktail. There’s a big difference between the Sbagliato and the Classic Negroni. According to legend, which is posted on Campari’s website:

In 1972, Mirko Stocchetto at the Bar Basso in Milan added sparkling wine instead of the gin by mistake to a Negroni. He then realized that this variation had some sense and this humble mistake led to the creation of a classic cocktail that is still enjoyed all around the world today, and to its name: in fact, in Italian “sbagliato” means mistaken. Ideal for those who want to enjoy a few “bubbles” without having to forget the classic sharp Negroni taste they know and love.
