Josep Juncosa at the InterContinental Buckhead’s XO Bar in Atlanta, which specializes in Cognac, says the Cognac Stinger has a fixed place on his drink list. “It’s a glamorous classic, digestive and attractive. Bing Crosby shared its power with Grace Kelly in the film High Society,” he says.

2 oz. Cognac
1 oz. crème de menthe
2 dashes mineral water
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: fresh mint (optional)

Shake ingredients well and strain into a chilled glass.
