Raffles creates a new Singapore Sling to mark 125 years of service

Raffles' 1887 Anniversary Sling

 In celebration of 125 years since the hotel’s opening, the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel in Singapore has created a new champagne sling, the ‘1887’.

The drink is inspired by its legendary Singapore Sling – invented in 1915 by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon – with a base of the hotel’s limited-edition Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve Champagne.

Not your standard tipple, the 1887 is a subtle twist on the traditional sling. The recipe for the cocktail is a closely guarded secret, but its creator, Randolf Velasco, reveals that Gordon’s Gin, Cointreau and essence of orange, lemon and lime all play a key role.

The anniversary sling is available from September exclusively at Raffles hotels worldwide, including Singapore, Raffles Beijing Hotel, Raffles Dubai and Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris.

It was 125 years ago in 1887 that Raffles Hotel first opened its doors and welcomed its first guests.  Today, the hotel is virtually synonymous with Singapore, named after the city’s founder, Sir Stamford Raffles.
