Happy Hour: Simple Singapore Sling

Although classic cocktails have made a resurgence in recent years, I can think of quite a few legendary cocktails from decades past that I've never had the privilege of trying. One of those is the Singapore Sling. It was invented about a century ago and since I've yet to spot it on a bar menu, I decided to make one for myself.

I quickly realized that many of the original recipe's ingredients, like cherry heering and Bénedictine, would take some time to track down — but in a pinch, I managed to find a pared-down variation. I imagine it's not as complex, but this rendition adopts some of the foaminess and the fruity notes from the original. For a quick version that's refreshing in its own right, keep reading.

The Authentic Grenadine is one of the best things that's happened to my little bar (aka my kitchen). It's a million times better than Rose's Grenadine and it's something I use to sweeten my pomegranite martini!!

This was one of TGI Friday's signature drinks about ten years ago. The last time I tried to order one there, the bartender couldn't make it. Huge disappointment.
