Developed by Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the early 1900's
. The Singapore Sling is a smooth, slow, sweet cocktail with a complex flavor. It is thought that the original recipe was virtually forgotten by the hotel bartenders and when they wanted to revive the cocktail, the hotel needed to adapt the recipe from the recollection of those bartenders. This is just one of the newer variations, the original did not use club soda.
