Singapore Sling turns 100

Happy Birthday, Singapore Sling!

The Raffles Singapore is celebrating the Singapore Sling’s centennial—the iconic pink drink is officially a century old, having seen its first sip in 1915 thanks to bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday bash without some traditional Raffles peanut shucking, and in addition, at the Long Bar you can learn to mix one of your own at one of the upcoming Singapore Sling masterclasses ($513), or check in for night with the Singapore Sling 100th Anniversary Suite Package. The deal includes a courtyard suite, breakfast, a 30-minute private session with the Long Bar bartenders, complimentary memorial “gift basket” and a slew of Sling memorabilia.

Package from S$1,380. 1 Beach Rd., Singapore, (+65) 6337-1886,
Long Bar (2)
