Raffles Singapore Celebrates 125 Years with a New “Sling”

Raffles Singapore, 1887 Sling

Raffles Singapore, 1887 SlingIt’s a big anniversary year for Raffles Singapore, birthplace of the classic cocktail, the Singapore Sling, and to celebrate, the hotel’s Long Bar is serving up something special. Bartender Randolf Velasco concocted a new Champagne sling called the “1887”—named for the hotel’s opening year. Made with the hotel’s limited-edition Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve Champagne, the “1887” also contains Gordons Gin, Cointreau and a hint of orange, lemon and lime.

Order up the new sling at Raffles Hotels around the world, including Singapore, Raffles Beijing Hotel, Raffles Dubai and Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris, starting in September. For more information, visit www.raffles.com.
