Diana and I both love bubbles and cocktails, especially a Negroni, so there’s no surprise that we’re obsessed with the new classic, Negroni Sbagliato. This is fancy Italian for a “mistaken Negroni” since the gin is replaced with Prosecco, but for us, there’s no mistake – it’s delicious. Besides being super fun to say, (especially after you’ve had a few) this is way lighter than a classic Negroni while maintaining the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. The bubbles will go to your head a little faster so pour it over ice if you’re a bit of a lightweight. We like to squeeze some orange juice in there to brighten it up so it can be sipped a little faster.
When we’re not making this for ourselves and friends, you can find us drinking Negroni slushies at Parson’s Chicken & Fish in Chicago or pretending we are sipping them in Positano. We hope you enjoy many of these cocktails with your favorite people wherever you are!
Happy New Year!
