Singapore Sling

February 2003
Way back in 1915, a Chinese bartender of Hainese dialect concocted a cocktail of gin, cherry brandy, pineapple juice, lime juice, Dom Benedictine, grenadine with a dash of angostura bitters and garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cherry. It was aptly named Singapore Sling and originally this drink was meant as a woman's drink, hence the attractive pink colour. Today, the world famous cocktail is very definitely a drink enjoyed by all, without which any visit to Singapore is incomplete.

And if you can't make it to Raffles Long Bar or the Ritz's Lobby Lounge here's what's needed to create one for yourself.

1oz - 30 ml Gin
1/2oz - 15 ml Cherry Brandy
4oz - 120 ml Pineapple Juice
1/2oz - 15 ml Limejuice
Dash Cointreau
Dash Dom Benedictine
Dash Grenadine
A Dash of Angostura Bitters
Garnish with a slice of Pineapple and Cherry

Place four ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and add the gin, cherry brandy, limejuice, Cointreau, Grenadine pineapple juice and bitters. Shake well and strain into a highball glass. Garnish with a slice of Pineapple and Cherry.
