The ingredients of a Singapore Sling are Gin, Cherry Brandy, Benedictine, Angostura Bitters, Pineapple and Lime Juice.

The Singapore Sling is a gin-based sling cocktail from Singapore. This long drink was developed sometime before 1915 by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon who was working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore. It was initially called the gin sling – a sling was originally a North American drink composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavoured.


Pour the gin, cherry brandy and Benedictine into a mixing glass or a jug. Add the ice and Angostura bitters. Stir well until the outside of the glass feels cold.

Pour the mix into a tall glass, then add the pineapple juice and lime juice and stir gently. Top up with sparkling water and garnish.

A gratuity is an added percentage of your bill, that goes to the waitron as their tip.

Tips and their amount are a matter of social custom and etiquette, and the custom varies between countries and between settings. In some places tipping is not expected and may be discouraged or considered insulting, while in other places tipping is expected from customers. The customary amount of a tip can be a specific range of monetary amounts or a certain percentage of the bill based on the perceived quality of the service given.

A table of the following people, (Grand Mother, Dad, 5 year old boy, Teenage Daughter, Grand Father), the 5 year old boy should be served first, and the dad should be served last.

The order of service for the entire table should be 5 year old boy, Grand Mother, Teenage daughter, Grand Father, and lastly the dad.

While this will be different depending on culture and country, in a western context it is customary to start with small children, then to move from senior women to junior women, then from senior men to junior men, and the host of the table lastly (the dad). Of course, the person sitting at the head of the table is often a give away as to who the host is.
