A member of the Stinger family, the Prince is a rye-based version of its more famous cousin that originated at the Waldorf-Astoria before Prohibition. It reads like a cross between a Fancy Whiskey Cocktail from the late 19th century and, because of the unfussy stir-in-the-glass process, a relative of the bachelor drinks of the ’70s, like the Godfather and Rusty Nail.
