Amaretto Stinger

The Amaretto Stinger is the sweetest of the stinger cocktails. Like the others, it is pretty good considering that there is a whole ounce of peppermint schnapps, which tends to ruin drinks.

My only criticism of this cocktail is that it is as sweet as it is. Brandy, gin, vodka: these all are drier and cut down on the sugar. But the up side is that Disaronno is mellow and tamps down sharp peppermint flavors. The amaretto flavor blends with the mint and turns this cocktail into a cordial with a cold finish.
  • 2 oz. amaretto (Disaronno used)
  • 1 oz. peppermint schnapps
Combine both ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
