Singapore Sling

Invented in 1913 by Ngiam Tong Boon at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Countless recipes exist, but this is the original. In the '30s, it was changed to give way to the Raffles Sling (a much fruitier recipe, provided by a hotel customer), which sadly is now the one most familiar among guests.
