Sling Drink

The Singapore Sling is a world famous cocktail from Singapore. This gin-basedlong drink was developed by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore sometime before 1915. Initially it was called the gin sling. Basically, a sling was originally a North American drink composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavored. 

The precise date of creation of the world's most famous cocktail is a mystery. As per Gretchen Liu’s coffee table book Raffles Hotel, Singapore Sling, sometimes called the gin sling, was first mixed one hot afternoon in 1915. While others are equally certain that it was available to thirsty guests at least a decade earlier.

The Raffles hotel's resident historian, Leslie Danker gives an amusing reason behind the Singapore Sling's creation: "At the time, ladies were not meant to be seen drinking in public. As the bar tender created a recipe that was pink, no one knew that the ladies were drinking gin."

Thanks to FLAMINGO It Was Our Excellent Dream Trip

This was our first trip at abroad, we were having lots of questions with us how will be the company, will get Jain food and many more but with flamingo the answers was yes we got best company and excellent food all over the trip. We didn't only get Jain food but we got full Gujarati dish "Shikhand Puri", "Pani Puri", "Puran Puri", and many Indian dishes, it was really very surprising for us. The hotels provide by them for stay were also so good. The tour manager Devarshi Mam itself was so supportive. We never realized that tour manager is with us she was like our family member. She was so friendly by nature and knowledgeable person to guide us. Thanks to FLAMINGO.It was our excellent dream trip. I would rate 5 stars out of 5.
