The singapore Sling was invented at the famous Raffles Hotel by Ngiam Tong Boon. This
recipe is my favourite mix, which I got from the Savoy Recipe Book, printed in the

Pineapple makes delicious drinks that take very little effort to prepare. Both these drinks are of the non alcoholic variety but by simply adding a little good quality dark or white rum to them you have yourself a tasty intoxicating creation.
4-6 portions (dependent on the size of the pineapple)
Limoncello is a famous Italian liqueur which is infused with lemon zest and sweetened
with sugar. The addition of thyme to the recipe adds an underlying depth to this
decadent drink. When ready store the Limoncello in the freezer and serve directly from
there in shot glasses.
This is my favourite cocktail of all times to drink and serve, it is true decadence. All it requires is quality ingredients to be a success, of course it works just as well with a quality Australian sparkling as champagne.
