The iconic Singapore Sling, made famous by countless travel shows and travel magazines, but what’s all of the hype about? The Singapore Sling was first created by a bartender at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel in the 1900’s, at a British Colonial’s request for a tropical drink that was suitable for the beautiful women he was admiring at the bar.
Today, you can enjoy the very sweet $30 cocktail in the colonial decor of the Long Bar. With rattan fans over head, peanut shells strewn on the floor and a live band in the background, you can image what life was like during the colonial era.
