Historia:

Classically the Stinger is shaken and served straight-up in a chilled coupe. However, we think it makes for a more refreshing peppermint and cognac digestif when served over crushed ice.

In the 1956 American musical comedy film High Society, Bing Crosby explains to Grace Kelly how the Stinger gained its name. "It's a Stinger. It removes the sting."

In his 2015 Updated & Revised Imbibe, David Wondrich recounts a 1923 newspaper gossip page story which credits the invention of The Stinger to Reginald “Reggie” Vanderbilt, an American millionaire and father of fashion designer Gloria Vanderbilt.

According to Woindrich, Reggie was a keen cocktail maker and “was observed in all its pomp and glory in the bar of [his] home, and he himself was the high priest, the host, the mixer.” The bar in his Fifth Avenue mansion was apparently modelled after the one in the William the Conqueror tavern in Normandy and “the ‘Stinger’ was his own invention, a short drink with a long reach, a subtle blending of ardent nectars, a boon to friendship, a dispeller of care.”

So keen a cocktail maker was Reggie that he died from liver failure due to alcohol abuse on 4th September 1925.
