Oh, Stunning: Where to Find the Viral Negroni Sbagliato in Houston

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.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
