Robert Hess, having a “penchant for slightly obsure products” as he writes in his book The Essential Bartender´s Guide, created the wonderful Negroni-like Trident in 2002. This drink was served for years in the Zig Zag Cafe in Seattle.


 1oz. Dry Sherry, 1 oz. Cynar (an Italien bitter liqueur made from artichoke and other herbs and plants), 1 oz. Aquavit (a Skandinavian spirit with flavors from spices and herbs, mainly caraway or dill), 2 dashes Peach Bitters (I took Bitter Truth), garnish: 1 Lemon Twist


Stir ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.

  1. Cynar is such a great liqueur. I serve it a lot when I cook with artichokes. This sounds like a great cocktail. I’m keeping it for artichoke season. 🙂
