Singapore Sling

One of the team here at gin.co.uk has been lucky enough to sample this classic in the very place it originated – Raffles Hotel in Singapore. At a cost of almost $30 it’s not cheap but you do get unlimited peanuts and the unadulterated joy of throwing the shells on the floor : )

It’s been on the menu at Raffles since 1915 when bartender Ngiam Tong Boon created it to allow ladies to drink in public without being judged. Its use of clear spirits and its beautiful pink colour made it look more like a fruit based drink than something packed with alcohol. Needless to say it was a big hit.

Unlike some of the other classics, this one is a bit of a faff to make, but it is definitely worth it. The recipe below is the official Raffles version
