On Location: Slinging In Singapore

If we are one thing, it would have to be worldly. Thus, sometimes we will have to excuse ourselves from Gotham and head On Location. We don´t live in a bubble, and to make sure you don´t either, DBTH will fill you in on what the world has to offer.

On Location: Singapore

Singapore is much more than a place where Americans get cained and gum chewing is illegal. It just happens to be a place where they know how to make a cocktail. Which we appreciate. Thus, our first stop was of course the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel. For those who do not know, the LB created one of the world´s most infamous cocktails, the Singapore Sling. We had to head to the source. Walking into the bar you could feel you were in a piece of nightlife history. Interesting twist: the bar has pigeons flying around in it and baskets of crunchy peanuts on the tables. Unique. The classic Sling has gin, cherry brandy, grenadine, cointreau, pineapple juice and bitters. Normally too fruity for us, but to be honest, it was pretty damn tasty.
