Revel in Tradition at Raffles Singapore
Since its creation at Raffles by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon more than a century ago in 1915, the Singapore Sling has become one of the world’s most iconic cocktails. Now, guided by one of the hotel’s expert mixologists, you too can learn how to craft it to perfection.
Accompanied by an introduction to the drink’s origins and tales of bygone times at this historic hotel, participants turn their hand at recreating this classic cocktail under the watchful eye of the Long Bar’s specialist bartenders. Then sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour with a platter of Satay and take in the relaxed atmosphere at the home of the Singapore Sling.
