After a grail quest for a key ingredient, and much thanks to Traderjeff ! I have been making these and really liking them.
There is a bit of complexity going on in this drink.

I'm sure it is, I was wondering if it was something more exotic.

I've been using generic cherry brandy which works just fine for me.

I think that the key to the drink is good grenadine. Not that Roses crap.

Benedictine is amazing stuff but I add another half ounce to mine. There's wasting it because you used too much and wasting it because you didn't use enough. In my opinion, you'd throw it away a half ounce at a time in this drink so I use a whole ounce.... 3/4 anyway.

Never knew how good these could be until Princess P's hubby Rob made me 1 or 12! Always on my list of must haves when we head up north to visit.

& Rob's recipe is now the official Singapore Sling recipe of the Rendez'vous in Kenosha ;)
They got rid of their other Singapore Sling recipe entirely, so now you know they'll get it right when you venture up this way!

Rob's sling has my vote as well! Glad the guys at Rendez'vous are going with that recipe.

YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

The Singapore Sling, when made correctly, is a very complex and tasty drink!! Glad you like them Ron.

The Cherry Heering is hard to find in Columbus lately. We had to go to Covington to stock up!!

We also hit Kings Island too!! :twisted:

Cheers and Mahalo,
Jeff

I agree- you want something with real pomegranate juice not artificial flavoring.

I love a good SS.

One of my favorties that I dont drink much of anymore. I can do one or two, but then need to move on to something else...

Gin makes me one mean son-of-a-bitch.

I've cut back on the suffereing bastards as well, although the bourbon in there seems to mellow the Gin freakout a bit.

Anyway, yeah, my hand is up.

Maybe I missed it elsewhere, but what's the recipe? Gin is my best friend! (especially when he comes with the Olive twins!)

Reportedly, this is THE recipe.

http://www.drinkboy.com/cocktails/recip ... Sling.html

And here is the one from Dale Degroff

Dale DeGroff asserts the following:
The following is the only and real recipe for the Singapore Sling (also the best
tasting). I have a fax from the head bartender sent to me at Rainbow several years ago
with their original recipe...all the others whether they are in books or not are wrong
AND they don’t taste good! Everyone quotes Bakers version and it is wrong and
doesn’t taste good…
3 oz. pineapple juice
1 1/2 oz. gin
1/4 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. Cherry Heering
1/4 oz. Benedictine
1/4 oz. Cointreau
1 dash Angostura bitters
Shake with ice, strain. Top with a little soda water. Garnish with a flag.



The Cherry Heering makes a difference! It is dryer than your typical Cherry Brandy.

Thanks! I've used a recipe from a random bar book, far less complex and only quasi-interesting. I can't wait to try this one!

What? no grenadine?? odd..

I tried the one posted at Kaiser Penguin:
Its says its by Dale DeGroff and it has 2 oz pineapple juice.

Singapore Sling

* 1 1/2oz gin
* 1/2oz Peter Herring Cherry Heering
* 1/4oz Cointreau
* 1/4oz Benedictine
* 2oz pineapple juice
* 1 dash Angsostura bitters
* 1/4oz grenadine
* 1/2oz lime juice
* club soda
* orange slice and maraschino cherry, for garnish

Shake all ingredients except the club soda with ice, and strain into a highball glass. Fill mostly full with ice, and top with the club soda. Garnish.

The Craft of the Cocktail, Dale DeGroff

My hand just went up. I had been wanting to try a Singapore Sling for a while and this thread motivated me to go out and buy a bottle of Benedictine. I tried the first Dale DeGroff recipe first and wasn't too impressed...while it could be very dangerous, I found it to taste too much like pineapple juice with most of the alcohol flavor masked. I just made the Drink Boy recipe and WOW, much better. I really like this one. I used Monin grenadine and now I will have to make some real pomegranite grenadine which I suspect will make the drink even better.

If you just got some Benedictine, try out a Lani Honi.

I am not surprised that the Cherry Heering makes a big difference.
With a black cherry flavor, it isn't anywhere near as sweet as grenadines.

Now, I'll have to see if I can find it locally to give this recipe a spin.

Thanks E33, the Lani Honi was delicious tonight. The Benedictine seems pretty versatile. I also tried a Cognac and Benedictine. That was tasty as well.
Princess P, do you want to share Rob's recipe? I'm pretty sure I'll be ready to drink some more Benedictine drinks tomorrow night.

I worked on a cocktail a while ago with Benedictine and then abandoned it. I can't recall whether I felt that it was "complete" or not.. it seems like I was still looking at other liqueurs for it when I ceased working on the thing.

At any rate, it was created at a time in my mixological journey when I had begun making some rather challenging cocktails that drew maybe too far outside the lines of tropicals and used too many obscure ingredients. I got to the point where I was only making drinks that appealed to me personally (bitter, sour, heavy on the booze), and was losing the audience that wanted a classic tropical.

So I set out to create one that was accessible and could be served from a tropical menu to a wider audience. I went with a Costa Rican inspired direction, thus the guanabana and the cacao.

This was the result of one such attempt:

Quote:
"Mano del Mono"

2 oz dark rum (created with Lemon Hart Demerara)
1/2 oz Creme de Cacao (light)
1/2 oz Benedictine
2 oz Guanabana nectar (Jumex brand is what I use)
Juice of half a lime (3/4 to 1/2 oz approx.) and a half shell
Light dash ground cinnamon

Shake all but cinnamon with 1 cup crushed ice

Serve into a hurricane glass or a highball

Additional ice as needed

Top lightly with cinnamon



I'd still like to hear critiques. I wouldn't mind revisiting this one if need be.

The Sling. What a classic! I think I will feature that at next year's Luau.
