How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass.

Garnish:

Lemon zest twist

Comment:

Bone dry and boozy, this cocktail is aimed at those who have a penchant for both fino 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 Mazanilla with a fino.

Origin:

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.
