We tried the Negroni Sbagliato, and so can you - House of the Dragon star Emma D’Arcy’s favourite drink
We made our own House of The Dragon star Emma D’Arcy’s favourite drink - the famous Negroni Sbagliato, here’s what we thought.
House of The Dragon star Emma D’Arcy sent the internet into a frenzy when they revealed to co-star Olivia Cooke that their favourite drink is a Negroni Sbagliato. The reveal came in a press interview clip posted on the HBOMax TikTok page, which quickly took over the platform.
The revelation has people across the world desperate to try the exclusive cocktail and the ingredients have been flying on the shelves. Click and drink have made having your very own Negroni Sbagliato at home easier than ever with their bundle of all the ingredients you need to live your best Emma D’Arcy life.
In the clip D’Arcy reveals their favourite drink, saying: “A Negroni. Sbagliato, with Prosecco in it.” Cooke appears to be immediately entranced with D’Arcy’s choice and responds, “Stunning.” People became enamoured with the way D’Arcy delivered her answer with fans commenting on the raspiness of her voice and dramatic pauses. Many comments on the clip said they now want to try the drink with one writing: “I’ve never been a Negroni fan but I think I am now”.
Olivia Cooke also revealed her drink of choice is a Gin Martini with a twist. However, it’s the Sbagliato’s time to shine and fans are thirsty. Like millions of others, I had the moment on loop in my head, and still do.
A Negroni has always been a top drink of choice for me, particularly in the colder months, but with prosecco? It sounded like a perfect marriage of my winter drink and a summery spritz. Click and Drink kindly sent us one of their bundles with all the ingredients to make our very own Negroni…Sbagliato…with prosecco. Spoiler alert - I was not disappointed.
The bitterness of the drink is nicely balanced by the fizz from the prosecco, making it a sparkling addition to any winter menu. Not to mention it took mere seconds to make. If you are already a fan of a Negroni this is a perfect way to mix things up.
So, how did I make this delicious concoction you ask? Here’s a breakdown of the recipe I used with the ingredients bundled up for ease by Click and Drink.
