A bartender, Ngiam Tong Boon who worked in Raffles Hotel in 1915, created the Singapore Sling.  Since then, the recipe was so valuable to the extent that it has to be locked up in the safe of the hotel for many years.

Singapore Sling has gained international fame over the years.

 Actor, Johnny Depp acted in the movie ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, mentioned Singapore Sling while meeting the attorney.

 The drink is pretty high in spirits content.  So, if you drink, don’t drive.  If you don’t drive, you can drive yourself to sing out Singapore Sling aloud!

    It sounds a great drink. I agree that driving afterwards would be a bad idea. I’d love to try one some day.
