What better way to ring in the New Year than with Negroni? Negroni is an Italian cocktail made from gin, Campari (a bittersweet liquor), and red vermouth. It is a classic cocktail that is usually served with ice in a low-ball glass (small glass) or without ice in a Champaign glass that is also known as Champaign flutes.
The Bungled or mistaken Negroni is coming from the Italian name- "Negroni Sbagliato". It was invented in Italy when a bartender added sparkling wine instead of gin while making Negroni drink. He realized he made a mistake, but the new creation was not that bad. The drink is much loved and since then made on purpose for people who love the sharp taste of the original Negroni with a bit of bubbly twist. As it's common to drink sparkling wine on new year's eve, this recipe is perfect for the night!
This year, I decided to use different glasses to serve the drinks in rather than the traditional Champaign flute that it’s typically served in. I believe that since the drink is already bungled, it can therefore be served in these super cute dot dot glasses of ZAK Design Europe. Originally, the glasses are intended for coffee, but the festivity of New Year's had me pulling out all the stops!
I hope that you will enjoy the drink and you can even serve some finger food, like individual desserts, with it. From my family to yours, Happy New Year!
