Singapore Local Customs: 116 reviews and 187 photos


The Singapore Sling is a cocktail belonging to the internationally known long-time classics.
It was invented sometime between 1910 and 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, the barman of the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel.
Nowadays the Raffles is not the only place where you can have a Singapore Sling, moreover many barmen have made some variants to it, so it may be interesting, when staying in Singapore, to go to a different bar every night, and try different versions of this cocktail.
Ingredients include gin, cherry brandy, Benedictine, grenadine, pineapple juice, lemon juice and a drop of angostura. It is always served with a cherry as a decoration.
