Singapore Sling

There are several variations of this cocktail, and this one is said to be the original. The Singapore Sling was first developed about 1915 by a bartender at a bar at Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The recipe had been lost for years. But when written notes of the original recipe were later found, the original Singapore Sling recipe was able to be recreated (especially with the added help of memories from former Raffles bartenders). With a deep pink color, the cocktail was originally intended as a lady’s drink. But it’s a smooth, sweet cocktail with a complex flavor that everyone can enjoy.
