Sinking a Singapore Sling

May 26, 2009 · 3 comments

With my last full day in Singapore, I decided to do the most touristy thing possible. Visit the Raffles Hotel and have one of the famous original Singapore Sling cocktails. At SG$27 it was pricey, but at least I can say I’ve done it properly so can stick to cheap knock offs from now on.

I wonder if anyone has noticed I put the ingredients to making a Singapore Sling upon rolling the mouseover.
