In the same year that Singapore celebrates its 50th anniversary, legendary Raffles Hotel is paying tribute to one of the world’s most iconic cocktails as the Singapore Sling marks its Centennial Anniversary. The Singapore Sling, widely regarded as the national drink of Singapore, was first created in 1915 at the Long Bar in Raffles Singapore by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. It later went on to gain international fame and a century later, is still enjoyed around the globe.
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, a myriad of activities has been planned throughout 2015 by the hotel. From commemorative merchandise to desserts inspired by the Singapore Sling, there are many opportunities to participate in the celebrations. You can sign up for the Singapore Sling Masterclass, where bartenders from the Long Bar will divulge the secret to making the perfect cocktail or spend the night at the Raffles Singapore with the Singapore Sling 100th Anniversary Suite Package.
