I really like this cocktail despite its being a minty cognac drink. The thing is, there's very little mint and a good bit more cognac in proportion than there is in the Stinger. It is well rounded, dry, and thick tasting without adding sugar. The mint is more of a cool suggestion of herbs rather than a candy cane. Do this one in winter when a good cognac drink is all that will do.
  • 2 oz. cognac (Remy Martin VSOP used)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 2 tsp. maraschino liqueur
  • 2 tsp. white creme de menthe (peppermint schnapps used)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
