Cognac Stinger

Little is known about the origins of this classic Cognac cocktail, sometimes just called a Stinger. It first appeared in print in Tom Bullock's Ideal Bartender in 1917. It used to be known purely as an after dinner drink, but some time in the early 1920s it became popular before meals.
