The Singapore Sling is a patently amazing cocktail: bright red, foamy, huge, garnished with fruit salad. The Singapore Sling is a gin-based cocktail. The drink was developed around 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore. There are countless different recipes for the Sling in existence, and not even the hotel has the original 1915 recipe, which has been lost to history.

However, the cocktail was initially called the Gin sling – a sling was originally an American cocktail composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavored. Let's see how to make a modern version of Singapore Sling cocktail.

You should try this classic cocktail recipe at home. We have used Sipsmith London Dry Gin as our base liquor because it is one of the only gins in the world not to be made from concentrate, it's distilled the old school way on copper for smoothness, only ever taking the heart cut of the run, to produce the perfect balance and depth of flavour.

Sipsmith's London Dry Gin is distilled from the finest English Barley spirit with 10 carefully selected botanicals, and blended with the exceptionally pure water of Lydwell spring, one of the sources of the River Thames. The result is an interpretation of the classic London Dry style that nods to its heritage and emerges as a particularly dry gin with a wonderful burst of juniper and a zesty, citrus freshness. LiquorOnline is an ideal place to shop Gin Online. Buy Sipsmith Gin online at our Gin menu.
