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
- 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.
