It's Negroni Week 2015, where bars around the world gather together with Imbibe and Campari to celebrate for good causes. Here at Red & Brown HQ we want to keep the celebration going at home with classic cocktails and new riffs on the world's greatest 3-ingredient cocktail.
Literally translated as a "wrong" or "mistaken" negroni, this version gets a classy upgrade with a substitution of sparkling wine for the usual gin. The only mistake here would be to not have a refill, made possible by the lower proof.
- 1 ounce sparkling wine
- 1 ounce Campari
- 1 ounce sweet vermouth
Combine the Campari and vermouth in a mixing glass or pint glass with plenty of ice. Stir until well chilled, about 10-15 seconds.
Pour into a rocks glass with a single large ice cube. Top it with your sparkling wine and give it a gentle stir to incorporate. Garnish with an orange wheel or twist (dealer's choice).
