Trident Chill and Pour
A blend of Aquavit, Manzanilla Sherry, Cynar artichoke amaro, and peach bitters. Bottled and aged for at least six weeks.
Extremely dry, and very boozy, the Trident is an alternative take on a Negroni. Instead of gin, this has the Scandinavian spirit Aqvavit, in place of vermouth, this has a delicate Manzanilla sherry, and instead of Campari, this has a very distinctive Cynar, an amaro made of artichoke. The drink is tweaked with peach bitters, and results in a journey of a drink with a very different nose and tail. Try it.
Pour over ice in a rocks glass and stir until freezing. Add a slice of lime.
History and Reviews of the Myatt's Fields Trident
This variant on the Negroni was invented by American cocktail genius Robert Hess.
This drink is not for everyone. A strong sherry nose sneaks in the bittersweet artichoke flavour, all underpinned by the fierceness of aquavit. For those of us that like these flavours, this is a thing of beauty and close to the perfect drink.
Legend says that the Trident name came from the three ingredients all coming from sea faring countries.
