Stands for all the fables of the exotic East... Somerset Maughan. As you can see we are in the famous Raffles Hotel sipping a Singapore Gin Sling on the palm fringed verandah. I have been told that this drink was created by barman Ngiam Ton Boon in the Long Bar sometime in 1915. Here is the recipe. 2/4 Beefeater Gin; 1/4 Peter Heering Cherry Brandy; Drops of Benedictine and Cointreau; 1/4 Orange, Pineapple and Lime Juice; Angostura Bitters; Decorated with Pineapple and Cherry; Topped with a little secret
