Bone dry and boozy, this cocktail is aimed at those who have a penchant for both sherry and aquavit, not to mention bittersweet artichoke liqueurs - hardly mass market then. Nor are Aston Martin cars but I want one.

Be warned - use the wrong sherry and this drink falls apart - don’t be tempted to sub manzanilla with a fino.


This riff on a Negroni was created in 2002 by Robert Hess. The Trident name apparently was inspired by the fact that each of the three main ingredients come from different sea-faring countries.
