15 ml Heering Cherry Liqueur
30 ml gin
120 ml pineapple juice
15 ml lime juice
7,5 ml Cointreau
7,5 ml Dom Benedictine
10 ml Grenadine

All the ingredients in a Singapore Sling is shaken and poured into a sling glass. Garnish with fresh pine-apple and a fresh cherry.

The Singapore Sling was created at Raffles Hotel at the turn-of-the-century by Hainanese-Chinese bartender mr Ngiam Tong Boon. Till today, in the Hotel’s museum, visitors may view the safe in which Mr Ngiam locked away his precious recipe books, as well as the Sling recipe hastily jotted down on a bar-chit in 1936 by a visitor to the Hotel who asked the waiter for it. Mr Ngiam Tong Boon concocted the very first coctail to achieve global fame by mixing 30 ml gin, 15 ml Heering Cherry Liqueur, 120 ml pineapple juice, 15 ml lime juice, 7.5 ml Cointreau, 7.5 ml Dom Benedictine, 10 ml Grenadine and a dash of Angostura Bitters. Shaken not stirred, served on ice in a cocktail glass.

When in Singapore, remember to visit the Raffles Hotel
and the Long Bar where the Singapore Sling was born.
