Classic Singapore Sling Recipe

Get in the Tropical Mindset by Sipping On This Classic Tiki Tipple

If you've ever sipped a Singapore Sling, you already know just how special this classic tiki tipple is. If you're not yet acquainted, it's a drink that's at once both sweet, tart, and strong, with just enough bitterness to round it all out. (Plus, how fun are the garnishes?) Offered at many tiki bars, it's one to seek out, or better yet, make for your next cocktail hour or dinner party.

Don't let the daunting ingredient list dissuade you from giving this classic a chance. Sure, it requires some up-front investment in ingredients (namely, the Bénédictine and Cherry Heering), but the results are so very worth it. Plus, we've rounded up a handful of cocktails using each of these liqueurs, so that your bottles won't gather dust.
