Cocktails are a type of drinks which were invented by creative enthusiast who wanted to experiment with their drinks. As the time passed by, they became heavily commercialized. Nowadays, everyone is making cocktails and everybody is trying to promote something through them. Only a handful of people still see fun and creativity when making these drinks.

Negroni Sbagliato is a drink with rather funny and interesting history. Original Negroni was created in Florence, Italy. It was created by count Negroni. He often drank Americano cocktail and he wanted a bit stiffer drink. So, he ordered his bartender to put gin into Americano, instead of soda water. Count Negroni loved the cocktail and even made his own distillery that sold Negroni. Given that it was popular all over Italy, it was also served in Milano. During one night, few decades after creation of original Negroni, unknown bartender wanted to make this cocktail. Instead of putting gin, he accidentally put prosecco instead. This is how Negroni Sbagliato was created (sbagliato means mistaken, flawed in Italian). In that regard, this was perhaps the most interesting and most unique cocktail which was made by complete accident. Today, Negroni Sbagliato is even more popular than the original. You can find it in many bars all over the world. One of the Toronto lounges that makes excellent version of this cocktail is D.W. Alexander, renowned Canadian lounge, located in Toronto.
