The Singapore Sling is a cocktail I can remember my mother ordering when we went out for dinner. It’s a great, easy drinking cocktail that combines some very good flavors like pineapple and cherry. I decided now was the time to try my hand at this classic so here is my Singapore Sling recipe!

This also gave me an excuse to use one of my epic vintage partridge in a pear tree glasses. I absolutely love these and have the whole set including the holder.

How to Make a Singapore Sling

To make this Singapore Sling cocktail you will need the ingredients listed. You will also want a nice hurricane or Tom Collins glass.

  • Combine the ingredients in a Boston shaker with ice.
  • Shake until the outside of the shaker is cold to the touch.

  • These drinks are meant to have the froth on top like you see in the picture above to don’t be alarmed once you’ve shaken yours and poured it.
