Singapore Sling


The Singapore Sling is a gin-based sling cocktail from, you guessed it, Singapore. The Singapore sling has been documented as early as 1930 as a recipe in the Savoy Cocktail Book but believed to be developed sometime before 1915 by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon, who was working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore. It was initially called the gin sling – a sling was originally a North American drink that in its classic form, is made with sugar. The gin sling, attested from 1790, described a North American drink of gin that was flavored, sweetened, and served cold.
