Todays photos are from Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
Raffles Hotel is over 125 years old and is one of the iconic symbols of Singapore.
Love the doorman's uniform.
The world famous Long Bar located at Raffles. This is where the world famous Singapore Sling was created. If you try one at this bar you will pay dearly. Over 10 years ago the cost of the drink was $18.00, wonder how much it would be today?
Here is the original recipe that is used at Long's bar.
The Classic Singapore Sling
2 measures (30ml) Gin
1 measure (15ml) Cherry Brandy
120ml Pineapple Juice
1 measure (15ml) Fresh Lime Juice
½ measure (7.5ml) Cointreau
½ measure (7.5ml) DOM Benedictine
10ml Grenadine Dash of Angostura Bitters
Ensure that all of your ingredients are cold, add to a chilled cocktail shaker with ice and shake well.
Strain, and pour into a hurricane style glass. The grenadine ensures that the drink is a pale pink colour, whilst the pineapple juice creates foam on the top of the drink.
Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a maraschino cherry.
