With a provenance going all the way back to at least 1915, the Singapore Sling is older than it seems; the combination of gin, Bénédictine, and fruits feels as timely as ever over a hundred years on. This recipe was preserved by veteran mixologist Dale DeGroff, who was given notes on the recipe invented by Ngiam Tong Boon at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Garnish with a cherry and a slice of pineapple, and serve with a straw.
