Lady Be Good / Cold Deck

One drink with two names; one feminine, one masculine. Perhaps it has to do with the sex of the person you are selling it to. A man wants an allusion to harsh maritime conditions. Women just want to know if the drink will pacify.

Whatever you call it, this cocktail is an improvement on the original Stinger, which is 2 to 1 brandy to white creme de menthe. A half ounce of vermouth almost makes this cocktail taste like a spicy and smooth brandy cocktail with only a hint of minty finish so as not to overpower the drink.
  • 2 oz. brandy (E & J XO used)
  • 1/2 oz. white creme de menthe
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
Stir all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
