According to legend, a bartender at the Milanese Bar Basso in 1972 stumbled upon a crisp, delightful adaptation to the Negroni that would become a popular alternative to the Italian classic. After reaching for the gin that should have completed the neat, 1:1:1 trifecta of Campari and sweet vermouth, the bottle he mistakenly retrieved poured forth a fizzier stream of spumante, Italian sparkling wine.
Thus the Negroni Sbagliato, Italian for "Incorrect Negroni," was born.
In honor of the mistakes made last weekend, and those waiting to be made again, OUT presents a variation on the variation from Ann Marie Del Bello, a New York-based beverage manager and our very own "unofficial" cocktail consultant.
