The Stinger cocktail is a duo cocktail made by adding white crème de menthe to cognac (although recipes vary). The cocktail’s origins can be traced to the United States in the 1890s, and the beverage remained widely popular in America until the 1970s. It was seen as a drink of the upper class and has had a somewhat wide cultural impact.

INGREDIENTS

  • 60 ml/ 2 oz. Cognac
  • 20 ml/ ¾ oz. crème de menthe (white)

METHOD

  1. Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well and strain into tumbler with fresh ice.

NOTES

The Stinger cocktail is a duo cocktail, in that it uses only two ingredients: a spirit and a liqueur. The classic Stinger recipe uses three parts cognac and one part white crème de menthe. However, Stinger recipes vary, and some recipes call for equal parts brandy and crème de menthe. The mixture was originally stirred, although modern recipes call for it to be shaken with ice.
