RAF­FLES SIN­GA­PORE PAYS TRIB­UTE TO ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST FA­MOUS COCK­TAILS, BORN HERE 100 YEARS AGO.

Bar­tender Ngiam Tong Boon cre­ated the first Sin­ga­pore Sling in 1915 at the Long Bar in Raf­fles Sin­ga­pore. It was an in­stant hit and soon gained in­ter­na­tional fame. A cen­tury later, it’s still en­joyed around the world – and nowhere more so than in the ho­tel where it was con­ceived. “The Sin­ga­pore Sling has be­come syn­ony­mous with Raf­fles Sin­ga­pore,” said Si­mon Hirst, the ho­tel’s gen­eral man­ager. “In recog­ni­tion of its 100th birth­day, we want to high­light its sweet suc­cess with spe­cial events to en­cour­age ev­ery­one to dis­cover, re­dis­cover and en­joy the Sin­ga­pore Sling.” To celebrate this mile­stone in mixol­ogy Raf­fles has nu­mer­ous ac­tiv­i­ties planned through­out 2015, from Sling-inspired desserts to a Sin­ga­pore Sling Mas­ter­class by Long Bar bar­tenders. The Sin­ga­pore Sling 100th An­niver­sary Suite Pack­age, mean­while, im­merses guests in the com­plete Sin­ga­pore Sling ex­pe­ri­ence.
