How to Make a Singapore Sling Cocktail

Save

Singapore Sling is one of the most frequently heard cocktail names in the world today. For many people, however, it is also a drink that they've never had the pleasure to experience. This stems largely from the fact that most people simply don't know how to make a genuine Singapore Sling.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. cherry brandy
  • 4 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. cointreau
  • 1/2 oz. benedictine
  • 1 dash grenadine
  • 1 dash bitters
  • Martini shaker
  • Ice
  • Tall cocktail glass
  • 1 wedge of pineapple (optional garnish)
  • 1 maraschino cherry (optional garnish)
  • Fill the martini shaker 1/3 full of ice.

  • Pour the gin, cherry brandy, Cointreau, and Benedictine into the shaker.

  • Pour the pineapple juice, lime juice, grenadine, and bitters into the shaker.

  • Secure the shaker's lid firmly on top and shake the mixture vigorously for 30 seconds.

  • Remove the shaker's lid and strain the liquid out into the cocktail glass of your choice.

  • Garnish with a wedge of pineapple on the rim of the glass and a maraschino cherry in the bottom of the drink.

Tips & Warnings

  • Appropriate cocktail glasses for the Singapore Sling include pint glasses, hurricane glasses, and collins glasses.
  • Using crushed ice will improve the chilling process during shaking and lower the amount of time needed to properly chill your Singapore Sling.
  • The Singapore Sling is a potent cocktail, even if it doesn't taste like one. Be cautious and don't overindulge.
  • Always drink responsibly and in moderation.
  • Never drink and drive.
