John deBary’s version of the Stinger recipe calls on a small measure of navy strength gin for added brightness and complexity.
- 1 1/2 ounces Tempus Fugit Crème de Menthe
- 1 1/2 ounces Cognac, preferably VS or VSOP
- 1/4 ounce navy strength gin, preferably Plymouth
Garnish: mint leaf (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir until chilled.
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
- Garnish with a mint leaf.
