Singapore Sling – a cocktail that effortlessly combines elegance and tropical flair. Originating from the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the early 20th century, this iconic drink has become a symbol of sophistication and exotic indulgence. With its vibrant mix of gin, cherry liqueur, and an array of citrus and herbal notes, the Singapore Sling offers a refreshing and complex taste that transports you to the bustling streets and lush landscapes of its namesake city. Whether you’re lounging by the pool or enjoying a night out, the Singapore Sling is your perfect companion for a taste of paradise in a glass.

Tasting Notes

The Singapore Sling delivers a well-rounded and refreshing flavor profile. The gin provides a robust, botanical base, while the Bénédictine liqueur adds a complex blend of herbal and honeyed notes. The cherry liqueur introduces a sweet, fruity layer that complements the tanginess of the fresh lime juice. The simple syrup balances the tartness with a touch of sweetness, and the club soda adds a light, effervescent finish, making the cocktail both vibrant and easy to sip. The overall taste is a harmonious blend of citrus, herbs, and fruit, creating a delightful and invigorating drink.
