This fragrant cocktail balances delicate Hendricks gin with Lillet Blanc and Aperol. It's a lightly citrusy and herbal hot-weather variation on the classic Negroni.

Recipe from James Stuart of The Trilby in New York.


  • Ice
  • 1 ounce Hendricks gin
  • 1 ounce Lillet Blanc
  • 1 ounce Aperol
  • Garnish: grapefruit peel


  1. 1.

    Fill a mixing glass with ice. Add gin, Lillet Blanc, and Aperol. Stir well. Strain into an ice-filled old fashioned glass. Twist grapefruit peel over drink to express oils, add to cocktail and serve.
