Kümmel’s answer to the Stinger. To quote Harry Craddock, "Brandy gives you courage and Kümmel makes you cautious, thus giving you the perfect mixture of bravery and caution, with the bravery predominating."
Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. The name is French for 'what a life'.
