"The Times Recorder", (1945)
"A stinger, says Oscar Haimo, the great bar authority, consists of an ounce of white creme de menthe and 1 3/4 ounces of brandy"
"Vintage Cocktails" by Susan Waggoner and Robert Markel (1999)
"Invented around 1900, the Stinger hit its peak of popularity during Prohibition, perhaps because the menthe overrode the taste of counterfeit booze."
