Original Singapore Sling Cocktail Recipe

This cocktail is actually more tiki like than a sling in the traditional manner. The Singapore sling was invented in 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon while working at the Long Bar in the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Slings started out originally as more of a boozy citrus shooter, and over time they got lengthened and sweeter. This one most likely a tropical variation of the Straits Sling.
