Negroni Sbagliato

Oh my goodness, this drink... it is my new favorite. It is bright and summery and sweet and bitter and... well I just love it.

Please don't judge my amateur orange peeling technique.

This is a Negroni Sbagliato... a "broken" or "incorrect" Negroni. The classic cocktail is typically made with gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. However, I had one at a cafe in my neighborhood that swapped the gin for sparkling wine and I fell in love. So this is that.

This drink is just champagne (or any dry, sparkling wine) Campari and sweet vermouth. Serve it over ice with a bit of orange peel.

Apparently the Negroni is somewhat of a blank canvas... there are many versions out there. I may have to try all of them, you know, just to be well informed. This article is a good one, if you are interested. Cheers!
