Drink: Sbagliato

Happy accidents make for amazing drinks. In Italian, "sbagliato" means "mistake." As the story goes, the inventor of this cocktail mistakenly grabbed sparkling wine instead of gin–and the rest is history. Smooth with just the right amount of bitter, Sbagliato is proof that mistakes can be delicious.


  • 4 oz. dry Prosecco or other sparkling white wine
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. Campari
  • Club soda
  • Lime wheel, to garnish


  • Pour Prosecco into an ice-filled large wine or rocks glass.
  • Add vermouth and Campari and top off with club soda.
  • Gently stir together and garnish with a lime wheel.
