Even though the Stinger cocktail ‘has only spirits in it, this drink is always shaken,’ writes David Wondrich. Well, not always. The FMK STINGER is stirred. Also, we replace the Creme de Menthe with PFEFFERMINZE 122, a clear, sugar-free spirit derived from macerated and distilled fresh peppermint.

Back in the day, the Stinger used to be a popular Society drink, commonly associated with the Vanderbilts.

This almost-forgotten drink can be rediscovered today, in this much drier, contemporary version.
