Down By Law 

Shannon Tebay, Death and Company | New York

Like a rebellious child, Shannon Tebay’s Down By Law not only sheds the White Negroni family name, but includes none of the original ingredients. The mixture of tequila, apple eau de vie, Luxardo Bitter Bianco, Absentroux and blanc vermouth might bear little resemblance to the fairer Negroni on paper, but, like any reluctant family member, it’s unable to shake the stirred herbal-floral essence that makes a White Negroni a White Negroni.
