The Singapore Sling is a true classic. Created by Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon at the Raffles Hotel in 1915, it's gone from strength to strength over the past 100 years, becoming one of the most popular (and glamorous) cocktails around. Although the original recipe was lost during the 30s, plenty of bars all across the world have stepped up to deliver their own version of this liquid masterpiece. Coloured a pretty shade of pink, this gin-based cocktail typically contains pineapple juice, lime juice, grenadine and, most importantly, Dom Benedictine. It's fruity, smooth and perfect for cooling down on a hot summer's day.
So, where better to enjoy a Singapore Sling than in Singapore? With Deliveroo, you don't even have to leave the house to enjoy some of the very best cocktails that the country has to offer. Here's our three favourite Singapore Slings that you can get delivered right to your front door:
Who knew Motorino Pizzeria, your little neighbourhood pizza place, did one of the very best Singapore Slings around? They mix gin, pineapple, lemon juice and grenadine to create a fabulously fruity take on the classic. Aromatic and refreshing, this is a Singapore Sling that's worthy of the name. Sure, it's a relatively simplistic and pared down version, but you wouldn't know it from the taste! Plus, Motorino Pizzeria is a great choice if you're looking for something to line your stomach while you drink. They serve (of course!) a range of authentic Italian pizzas and you can chow down on a Margherita or Marinara while you enjoy a deliciously summery cocktail. For us, it's the perfect combination.
The Wine Company
Not to be outdone, The Wine Company serves one of the most mouth-watering Singapore Slings around. It's an indulgent mix of gin, D.O.M., triple sec, cherry brandy, soda water, pineapple juice, lime juice and grenadine. That's a seriously adult cocktail. Sounds pretty extraordinary, right? Just wait until you try one! With vibrant colours, fresh fruit juices and a smooth texture, this Singapore Sling packs a surprisingly potent punch. The D.O.M. adds a few sweeter notes, providing you with a balanced drink that's a true testament to the original Raffles creation.
No prizes for guessing what Alcohol Delivery does best! That's right, they deliver the best beverages in the country right to your kitchen table. And, of course, when it comes to beverages the Singapore Sling is king. You can choose from either 250ml or 70cl – depending on how thirsty you turn out to be. The 250ml is ready to drink: just shake it, pull the cap off and start quenching your thirst. With the 70cl option, you just need to add the juice of your choice. For the original Singapore Sling experience, go for pineapple, but if you fancy something a bit more innovative, why not try grapefruit juice?!
