Taste test – Singapore Sling

Taste test – Singapore Sling

Have you ever drunk a cocktail? Cocktails, which include any type of alcoholic drink consisting of at least one spirit and two other ingredients, such as fruit juice, lemonade, or cream, are quite popular among youth these days. Because the ingredients can include almost anything, bars and clubs have countless cocktails on offer.

LIFT would like to introduce a cocktail called the Singapore Sling that can easily be made at home. Lee, food and beverage manager at the Rambutan restaurant, explained how to properly prepare a Singapore Sling.

According to Lee, there are several ingredients that we need: gin, grenadine syrup, Cointreau liqueur, fresh lime juice, fresh pineapple juice, cherry brandy – a sweet red cherry flavoured liqueur made from the juice of dark red cherries – and ice.
“Most of these ingredients are available in any supermarket,” said Lee.

To make a tasty Singapore Sling, Lee said we need to properly measure those ingredients in a mixing glass. However, it also depends on whether we want a strong drink with lots of alcohol or a weaker drink.

“First we have to put fresh lime juice in the mixing glass and then add the remaining ingredients. We then strain the ingredients into a tall glass and add ice cubes to fill it.”

To make the drink more interesting, you can garnish it with some fruit slices on the glass – then it is ready to serve.
