The main difference between a traditional Negroni and the Sbagliato is that the Sbagliato uses sparkling wine in place of gin, which makes for a lighter, more refreshing afternoon aperitif.

“The Sbagliato is a new cocktail that's perfect for consumers who are new to Italian red bitters and looking for a less spirit-forward option,” says Anne Louise Marquis, portfolio brand ambassador for Campari America.

Because there are only three ingredients in the drink, it’s important to choose high-quality ones like ‘vermouth di Torino’ (a type of vermouth that hails from Turin, Italy). If you don't have Prosecco on hand, any sparkling wine will do.


  • 1 ½ ounces Campari

  • 1 ½ ounces 1757 Vermouth di Torino

  • 1 ½ ounces Prosecco 

  • 1 slice orange (optional)


  1. Place a large ice cube in a rocks glass.

  2. Add ingredients and gently stir to incorporate. Garnish with an orange slice.
