How to Correctly Make a Negroni Sbagliato (Mistake)

We at Appetito do not know and do not care what kind of "mistake" led to the creation of the Negroni Sbagliato. What we do know is that switching out the gin for Prosecco is a refreshing alternative to this classic cocktail. We've asked our in-house aperitivo specialist, Riccardo Massetti of Cremini's Aperitivo & Kitchen in Brooklyn, to share his recipe and demonstrate on video (below) the technique for this delightful alternative. Cin-cin!
