What is the Singapore Sling?

The Singapore Sling is a cocktail that was invented by Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore sometime between 1910 and 1915. At one point in time the recipe fell into disuse and was actually forgotten by all of the current bar-staff. The recipe currently used by the hotel (and repeated below) was the result of recreating the original recipe based on the memories of former bartenders and some written notes that they were able to discover.

1 1/2 US fluid ounce (45 ml) gin
1/2 US fluid ounce (15 ml) Cherry Herring brandy
1/4 US fluid ounce (8 ml) Cointreau
1/4 US fluid ounce (8 ml) Benedictine
4 US fluid ounces pineapple juice
1/2 US fluid ounce (15 ml) lime juice
1/3 US fluid ounce (10 ml) grenadine
dash bitters
Shake with ice.
Strain into an ice filled collins glass. Garnish with
cherry and slice of pineapple.
