Chicest Adult Beverage: Singapore Sling, Raffles Hotel, Singapore

The Singapore Sling

In 1915 an intrepid bartender by the name of Ngiam Tong Boon mixed up the first Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, and his fruity concoction has been luring curious tourists and cocktail connoisseurs ever since. A punchy drink primarily consisting of gin, cherry brandy, grenadine and pineapple juice (with a few dashes of other liqueurs for good measure) the Singapore Sling is a real thirst quencher on those oh-so-humid Southeast Asian days. But at nearly $20 a pop for the privilege of sipping the Sling at the hotel’s famous Long Bar, I’ll take the check after one please, thankyouverymuch.
