The Stinger Cocktail RecipeDeath and Taxes
It’s unavoidable, we hear. This little something might help to take the sting out—becasue even if you don’t owe, tax prep can be tiresome.

Some form of the Stinger Cocktail was known before prohibition, and its name brings to mind upper-crust citizens like the Vanderbilts. It is a simple and delicious cocktail that is hard to mess up.

For variety, you can serve it with a twist of lemon or a splash of your favorite bitters.

The Stinger Cocktail Recipe
Yields one drink 

2-1/4 ounces cognac or brandy (we are using Hennessey)
3/4 ounce white crème de menthe

Mix well in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice. Go easy on the crème de menthe—it can be stronger than you think. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve.
