Cocktail: Singapore Sling

Here at Craft Gin Club, as much as we love innovating with new and delicious gin cocktail recipes, we always have time for a true classic - and this is one of the best. Invented in the early 1900s at Raffles Hotel in Singapore, there are countless variations on this classic gin drink; this recipe resembles the original version as it was served to guests over a hundred years ago.
