Campari Sbagliato_HR (1)
#2 Negroni Sbagliato

Negroni Sbagliato (literally meaning incorrect) came into being 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. This less-boozy alternative makes the perfect drink for any aperitivo.  While the Campari and Carpano Antica allow this drink to retain its classic balance of bitter and sweet, the Prosecco in this drink gives it a light and crisp quality suitable for a long afternoon in the Piazza or sitting in your backyard soaking up the sun.

#4 Italian Gin Fizz

Our bartenders put their own twist on this classic cocktail by making it with Malfy Gin Con Limone, which uses a selection of coastal Italian lemons – some from Amalfi and some from Sicilia – whose lemons are known for being vibrant in flavor and abundant in juice. Their unwaxed rinds are rich with oil, giving this cocktail an herbaceous gin a fresh and zesty aroma.
