A brief history of the Singapore Sling
The Singapore Sling is a classic cocktail that has been enjoyed by people around the world for over a century. This iconic drink is known for its sweet and tangy flavour, its bright pink colour, and its cherry top.
The history of the Singapore Sling can be traced back to the early 1900s, when the Raffles Hotel in Singapore was a popular destination for travellers and locals alike. At the time, the hotel's Long Bar was THE hot spot for societies elite, and was popular for eating, drinking and socialising - it was here that the Singapore Sling was first created.
The original recipe for the Singapore Sling is often attributed to Ngiam Tong Boon - a bartender who worked in the Raffles Hotel in the early 1900's. As legend has it, he created the drink as a way to create a new and refreshing cocktail that would appeal to the hotel's international clientele, particularly the British who frequented the hotel often.
The original recipe for this classic cocktail included Gin, Brandy, Orange Liquor, Benedictine Liquor, Grenadine, Pineapple juice, Lime juice, and bitters. The ingredients were smashed together over ice and served in a tall glass, garnished with a slice of pineapple and an iconic cherry on top.
Over the years, the recipe for the Singapore Sling has evolved and changed, with different bartenders and mixologists adding their own twists and variations to the original recipe. Some versions of the cocktail include additional ingredients like soda water or triple sec, while others use different types of fruit juice or liqueurs.
Despite these variations, the Singapore Sling remains a popular cocktail to this day, with its sweet and tangy flavours making it a favourite among cocktail lovers around the world.
Today, the Raffles Hotel still serves the Singapore Sling in its Long Bar, where visitors can enjoy the same cocktail that was created over a century ago. And while the recipe may have changed over the years, the spirit of the cocktail remains the same - a refreshing and delicious drink that captures the essence of Singapore and its vibrant culture.
