Stinger Cocktail Recipe

After-Dinner Drinks: The Stinger

Some after-dinner drinks double as desserts. Others, like Italy's amaros and other digestivos, help settle your stomach. The classic Stinger cocktail offers a little of both.

A simple, elegant marriage of white crème de menthe and brandy, the Stinger delivers an invigorating one-two hit of digestion-aiding mint and a sweet finish. This cocktail isn't for everyone; if the mint sounds off-putting to you, it might taste that way, too.

But to many of us, the first sip of a Stinger tastes surprisingly oh-so-right, a strange yet captivating combo that gracefully concludes a heavy meal. Get the classic cocktail recipe.
