As with all brandy-based mixed drinks, this cocktail is also no exception for when it should be drunk, however, it’s versatile for how it should be enjoyed – neat or on the rocks. The refreshing mint flavor of crème de menthe makes Stinger light and cheerful after dinner drink.
Preparation Time: 2 minutes.
Serves: 1 serving
Glassware: Rocks Glass
2 oz (60 ml) Brandy or Cognac
2/3 oz (20 ml) White Crème de Menthe
1 Mint Sprig

Tips and Variations:
Instead of serving it on the rocks in old-fashioned glass, serve it in a cocktail glass.
Use maraschino cherry as garnish and serve it as a Christmas cocktail.
Replacing white crème de menthe with its green counterpart turns this drink into Green Hornet Cocktail.
Make vodka stinger by using plain vodka and liqueur in equal parts.
