A NEW COCKTAIL trend has spawned after a TikTok of House of Dragons star Olivia Cooke asking her co-star Emma D’Arcy their drink of choice went viral. D’Arcy responds, “a Negroni Sbagliato… with prosecco in it.” Cooke’s reply? “Oh, stunning.”
The video has 18.9 million views on TikTok and has prompted an uptick in orders at bars across town. A traditional Negroni is made with Campari, sweet vermouth and gin. The Negroni Sbagliato — sbagliato is Italian for “mistake” or “wrong” — substitutes the gin for prosecco.
I'll take one of each. #houseofthedragon

Cocktail diva Alba Huerta added a little sweetness to the new classic. She shakes it up by adding Italian dessert wine to the recipe at this Heights hotspot ($16).
Enjoy the fall weather on the gorgeous patio of River Oaks’ Concura. In addition to the Negroni Sbagliato ($16), the tucked-away restaurant features a list of traditional Italian cocktails.
While it’s always on the menu, Negroni Sbagliatos ($14) will surely be a top request at the sceney West Gray fave’s annual Halloween bash on Oct. 29.
