Singapore Sling

Drink: Singapore Sling

This week's cocktail is an elegant drink that has historic roots. The Singapore Sling is a mixture of gin, cherry brandy, Cointreau and Dom Benedictine, with juices that give it a gorgeous sunset pink hue perfect for the hot days ahead. This recipe, you guessed it, is from Singapore. More specifically, it originates from the Raffles Hotel, which you might recognize from the film "Crazy Rich Asians." Sweet and refreshing, every ingredient adds to this well-balanced signature recipe. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and maraschino cherries for a flawless summer holiday weekend drink.
