Happy Friday, everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple, yet delicious libations. This week I want to focus on a most happy mistake: the Negroni Sbagliato.

“Sbagliato” is basically Italian for “whoops,” and the beverage apparently came into being when a bartender mistakenly grabbed a bottle of sparkling wine, rather than gin, when making a classic Negroni. (I feel like those bottles would be very different shapes, but who knows.)

A traditional Negroni is made with equal parts Campari, sweet vermouth, and gin. The only change you’ll be making is swapping out the gin for some bubbly. Since we’re heading into rosé season, I grabbed a bottle of pink bubbly, and would you look at how pretty it is? To make this most delicious mistake, you will need:

1 1/2 ounces Campari (you can also use Aperol if you find Campari too bitter)

1 1/2 ounces sweet vermouth

1 1/2 ounces sparkling wine, rosé if you wish to embrace the season

There are two ways you can build this beverage, and I went with the less-involved method, which is pouring everything into a lowball with ice, giving it a stir, and enjoying. If you’d rather have your sparkling cocktail in a flute, first pour the Campari and vermouth into a shaker tin or pint glass filled with ice and stir to chill. Strain into a flute, top with bubbles, and sip in a very refined manner. (Sidebar: To those astute readers who have noticed there have been quite a few cocktails featuring Campari, I know, and don’t worry. We’ll be moving on to rum or tequila next week.)
