If there’s one thing to love about Italian culture, it’s aperitivo hour. The Negroni is a classic Italian apéritif, traditionally made with gin, Campari and vermouth rosso – but you can put a sparkly twist on it with the Negroni Sbagliato. This recipe uses Italicus, an Italian liqueur that is part of the rosolio family, traditionally made from an aromatic flower. It was one of the original aperitivos from Italy, and when you mix it with prosecco and garnish with pitted green olives, you get something truly delicious.
