Stirred Sling

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

For this boozy, deconstructed Singapore Sling, Julie Reiner removed all the juice (but added a lime twist garnish) and replaced the gin with two kinds of rum: spicy Zafra, from Panama, and Jamaican Appleton Estate Reserve, which has notes of berries and pineapple.
