The Singapore sling is a classic cocktail with loads of variations…here’s how to make it the real way! It’s complex, fruity, bubbly and just plain fun.


  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1/2 ounce cherry liqueur or cherry brandy
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce Benedictine (optional but traditional)
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Ice, for serving (like clear ice)
  • Soda water, for serving
  • For the garnish: cocktail cherry, orange wedge (optional)


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice and shake it until cold.
  2. Strain the drink into a hurricane or highball glass that’s filled with ice. Top with splash of soda water (about 1 ounce or so). Garnish with a cocktail cherry and orange wedge.
