Everyone should try this cocktail at least once, it's an interesting mix of brandy and white creme de menthe liqueur. The Stinger makes an excellent dessert cocktail
that pairs nicely with rich chocolate desserts. This is also one of those drinks that is most commonly served on the rocks, but it's also excellent shaken and served neat
. If you try to substitute green creme de menthe you will end up with a muddy-colored cocktail that, while it does have the same taste, the appearance is not as appealing.
