How to make a Singapore Sling:

Prepare a cocktail shaker with ice. Mix gin, pineapple juice, lime juice, Cointreau, Benedictine, grenadine, and bitters together in the cocktail shaker. Shake the mixture for about 10-15 seconds until it’s well chilled. Strain the cocktail into a tall glass filled with ice. Top it up with soda water and give it a gentle stir. Finally, garnish the drink with a pineapple wedge and a cherry for added flavor and presentation.

The Singapore Sling is a complex and refreshing cocktail that has a perfect balance of sweet and sour flavors. The sweet foundation of this cocktail is derived from the pineapple juice and grenadine, while the tart notes of lime juice and bitters perfectly complement the gin. The Cointreau and Benedictine add depth and complexity to the drink, making it a true classic.

The key to a great Singapore Sling is using fresh ingredients and quality spirits. A good gin is essential, as it is the base of the drink. For best results, use freshly squeezed pineapple juice and a high-quality grenadine that is not overly sweet.
