This light style Negroni has the bitterness but lacks the punch and character of the original.


Pronounced 'spal-yacht-oh' which in Italian means 'mistake', this drink was created in the late 1980s by Mirko Stocchetti at his Bar Basso in Milan when making a Negroni he mistakenly reached for a bottle of spumante instead of gin. They are still served at Basso today in enormous chalice like glasses with single, giant, rectangular ice cube.

The history and other recipes for the Negroni cocktail can be found on our Negroni cocktail page.
