It seems like divine intervention that mere weeks before Thanksgiving the cocktail sweeping America is the negroni sbagliato (you know, with prosecco in it), a bubbly, cranberry-red tipple that’s festive enough for the holidays and boozy enough to help put up with your weird uncle. Since making individual cocktails for a crowd can be a drag, we’ve batched the viral drink—and added a bit of campy Thanksgiving flair (rosé vermouth, come through!)—to dream up the world’s first sbagliato sangría.
- 1 medium orange
- 1 medium apple, cored
- 1 bottle dry sparkling wine, such as prosecco or cava
- 1½ cup cranberry juice cocktail
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- ½ cup Campari
- ½ cup Cocchi Americano Rosa, or red vermouth
- ½ cup gin
- Orange twists (optional)
Note: This recipe makes a healthy 2 quarts of sangría (excluding ice). Halved, it will fit into one standard-size pitcher. If you want to make a full batch but don’t own a punch bowl or very large pitcher (or, alternatively, two regular-size ones), mix the sangría omitting the ice and/or sparkling wine and add them to glasses individually at serving time.
