Cocktail: Singapore Sling

singapore slingCocktail: Singapore Sling

A very sophisticated cocktail and yet a very easy to make and to follow recipe.

Enjoy a Singapore Sling during the Christmas season but please bear in mind that alcohol and driving are not compatible.

Be safe out there.

Singapore Sling recipe:

25ml gin

50 ml cherry brandy

1/2 lime, juiced

1-2 drops of Angostura bitters (optional)

ice cubes

cocktail cherries to garnish

150ml soda water, chilled

Preparation:

Mix together the gin, cherry brandy, lime juice and Angostura bitters.  (By the way the use of Angostura is optional, you do not have to add it but it would add a kick to your cocktail.)

Pour into cocktail glasses.  Add the ice cubes.

Garnish with a cocktail cherry each.

Finish off by topping the glasses with chilled soda water.

Cin cin!

helpful tips Always serve cocktails immediately.  Remember the ingredients will separate if the cocktail is left to stand.
