There are many different recipes for Singapore sling, and few agree on the formula or ingredients for this famous cocktail.
And although many claim to have the "original" Raffles recipe, that recipe was lost in 1930.
Raffles Hotel is home to the Long Bar, which is where the hotel claims that Ngiam Tong Boon, a talented Hainanese bartender, created the Singapore Sling in 1915.
At the time it was considered a socially acceptable ‘punch’ for ladies to drink in public. History is a bit hazy on whether these are actual facts or just a savvy marketing story.
There have been pink drinks and gin slings documented in Singapore in earlier publications, but it is no doubt that the Singapore Sling has endured. Over a hundred years later, it has become a quintessential part of Singapore’s brand and a must-do for tourists today.
