When he created the beautifully layered Wrong Way, mixologist Joe Campanale was inspired by an Italian cocktail known as Sbagliato, or "a Negroni gone wrong." Typically, a Negroni is equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, but Campanale replaces the gin and Campari with bitters and Prosecco here.

"This drink has a nice bitterness to it that helps whet your appetite," Campanale says.

He also notes that there's no need to shell out for an expensive bottle of Prosecco to make it. Just make sure it's dry and something you would drink on its own.
