Robert Hess says he originally created the Trident Cocktail, which he calls “one of my most successful cocktails,” while working with Fee Brothers’ peach bitters, but then found that Cynar fit perfectly into the flavor profile. “It’s essentially a Negroni, just shifting everything toward a more obscure ingredient,” he says.
