….  Recipes to try: Last month, at the Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, I got to judge cocktails along with Charles Joly, of the James Beard Award winning bar, The Aviary in Chicago. The goal was to help pick some of the world’s best spins on the classic Singapore Sling.

Two cocktails stood out for me, and I included the recipes below for the home mixologists to try.

Here’s the instructional video on how to make those cocktails. The Rye Sling is at the 10:13 mark and the Highland Sling at the 58.13 mark.

Highland Sling by Michael Flannery from New York City

1 oz Cherry Heering

1 oz Siete Leguas Blanco tequila

3/4 oz fresh pineapple juice

3/4 oz fresh tangerine juice

3/4 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz Benedictine

1 bar spoon Green Chartreuse

2 dashes Dale DeGroff Pimento bitters


Rye Sling Star by Ben Manchester from England

25ml Rye Whiskey (I used Rittenhouse 100 Proof)

20ml Cherry Heering

10ml Applejack (Lairds)

5ml Green Chartreuse

Dash Cherry Bitters (Fee Brothers)

75ml Apple Juice

10ml Lemon Juice


These two finalists, along with three others, will compete in the Peter F. Heering Sling Award in Berlin Oct. 8 and 9.
