Singapore Sling Martini

The Singapore Sling Cocktail

The classic Singapore Sling cocktail was created by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon in 1915 at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.  Originally a tall drink, this is the martini version.

1 ½ oz. gin

1 oz. cherry brandy

Juice of ½ lemon

½ oz sugar syrup

Optional: dash of Benedictine

Combine ingredients in a chilled shaker half filled with cracked ice.  Stir and strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with a thin twist of lemon peel.  You’re going to fall in love with it!
