Cold Brew Negroni Sbagliato

A caffeinated cocktail perfect for sipping in the sunshine.

People always ask: “What is the meaning of the word Sbagliato?” The word Sbagliato roughly translates to ‘mistake’ in Italian. Legend has it, a bartender once accidentally grabbed sparkling wine instead of gin as he was making a Negroni, inadvertently inventing what would eventually become another popular cocktail. This take on the Negroni Sbagliato comes from Pilot Coffee Roasters in Toronto, and introduces an invigorating cold brew concentrate (they make it with their own Radial Summer Blend) to the mix.
