Red is the color of love. This Valentine's, cheer your love with the lovely red drink, the Singapore Sling. Singapore is a multi-faceted state. It is not only known for its milestone tours, fabulous transportation system, soothing opera or medical art of Feng Shui but the state does not lag behind when it comes to hot and happening lifestyle or the electric nightlife. The country is rich in its culinary offerings too, and especially different types of drinks add flavor to the “Work Hard Party Harder” lifestyle.
Of its many luscious drinks, we have picked the Singapore Sling as dish of the day for today. It’s one of the most famous fruity cocktail with the tangy lime taste. Not only does it taste heavenly, but its tantalizing red color is also very appealing. The drink was first mixed by Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese-Chinese bartender.
Today Singapore Sling is served in various parts of the world with different names and variations. It is served on numerous local festivals and occasions. Singapore Sling is served on all Singapore flights, restaurants, pubs, bars and party places.
