How to make Sigapore sling

Singapore Sling (1910-1920)

Singapore Sling was created at the Raffles Hotel, Singapore, around the early 1910s by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon.

The recipe was published in 1922; it was found written on a coaster from the Raffles Hotel, and soda water was not mentioned in the recipe. It’s believed that drink was also known before as Straights Sling.

The original recipe was lost in the 1930s. There are many variations of the drink, but most of them have one thing in common, DOM Benedictine.
