Singapore Sling

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

“The Singapore Sling is one of my favorite tropical cocktails,” says Julie Reiner. Most drink histories credit the recipe to a bartender named Ngiam Tong Boon, who’s said to have mixed the first Sling around 1915 at the Long Bar inside Singapore’s Raffles Hotel.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces gin, preferably Plymouth
  3. 1 ounce Sling Business (See Note)
  4. 1 1/2 ounces chilled pineapple juice
  5. Dash of Angostura bitters
  6. 1 brandied cherry skewered on a pick with 1 pineapple wedge, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnish and shake well. Strain into a chilled, ice-filled coupe and garnish the drink with the skewered cherry and pineapple wedge.
Notes Sling Business: In a jar, combine 1/4 ounce each of Heering cherry liqueur, Bénédictine (brandy-based herbal liqueur), grenadine (preferably homemade) and Cointreau or other triple sec. Makes 1 ounce.
