This might be a historic build for the worlds best cocktail, but the proportions are WAY off if you are building this for an ice filled collins glass. Either use a hurricane glass or treat this as a build for two drinks. We cut the pineapple in half and without ice it filled a collins 3/4 full. I like it better with less pineapple because the benedictine and bitters take a stronger role.
Although it is the best cocktail ever had, I couldn't get it as red as the original Raffles' one. Even when I adder more grenadine.
Perfect cocktail. Just the right amount of sweetness. Heads above imposter slings that use sweet and sour mix.
Man was this good! Made for Dh and myself to celebrate our first day with the kids in camp. I used Grand Marnier and a pineapple-coconut water blend I can get here in Greece. Not too sweet and very, VERY smooth. We drank 2 each in no time at all.
This drink is delicious. Not too sweet and a nice color. I used cherry brandy as I don't have cherry heering. I used Grand Marnier instead of Cointreau. I used fresh lime juice and garnished with a slice of lime. Thanks FT Made for ZWT4
I used to prime my dates and friends with this drink way back in the late `60's early `70's in Georgetown , Washington,DC. We used to visit a Dinner Club called the Act VI ( bar ) that served these made just this way...Way to good a drink to not be tried. We used to enjoy it with loud Rock and Roll and wild dancing! Again you take me back to my wilding days....LOL!!! Thanks!
By far the best Singapore Sling I've ever had! The benedictine really makes this version. Be careful though! These down VERY easy. It would be easy to drink quite a few of these little gems, I think. Yum! Thanks FT!
