“Singapore Sling Cocktail”  was invented in Singapore. In case you don’t know where is Singapore, it’s located in Southeast Asia. Nowadays Singapore Sling cocktail is so popular among tourists who come to different countries to enjoy the tiki culture and tiki cocktails. But as it is so popular there, many American and European cafes also offer “Singapore Sling Cocktail” to their clients.

Singapore Sling cocktail was a transit point for the U.S. army during the Vietnam War. So American officers came to many cafes and bars of Singapore. Once, a young American officer came to the bar and asked a barista to make something special as he wanted to impress his girlfriend with a unique tiki cocktail. That barista was pretty creative, he started to mix different drinks and finally he made a nice tiki cocktail. His girlfriend fall in love with the cocktail! Other people were impressed and started drinking the tiki cocktail too. The barista decided to name this cocktail as a “Singapore Sling”. “Sling” means “commander” there and that’s how they called American Officers.

This cocktail is pretty light, bittersweet and not very strong. It’s a perfect option for a girl who just want to drink something light and beautiful or even for a man if he wants to drink something that is not too strong. In any case, if you’re sitting at home and you want to drink something or you want to impress that girl from work… Get your cocktail shaker and be ready to create a “Singapore Sling Cocktail”
