A Negroni is a classic aperitif made from sweet vermouth, gin and bitters typically taken before a meal to stimulate the appetite.
This word sbagliato, appended here to the name of a classic cocktail, translates to "incorrect" or "mistaken." But don't let that deter you from trying this beauty. With prosecco in lieu of the Negroni's traditional gin, this spritzy beverage makes for a buoyant alternative to the typical Italian aperitivo.
