Anyone who knows me well is familiar with my weakness for a palette that I like to call “Singapore Sling” colours. It’s the name of an old fashioned, girly cocktail that’s packed with gin and unabashedly pretty. I have to confess that I like the name of it, and the way it looks, much better than the way it tastes… but just in case you’re feeling brave:
1/2 oz grenadine syrup
1 oz gin
sweet and sour mix
1/2 oz cherry brandy
Pour grenadine into the bottom of a collins glass, and fill with ice. Add gin, and almost-fill with equal parts of sweet and sour and chilled soda. Top with cherry brandy, and serve unstirred, garnished with a cherry.
There’s just something about the combination of pink, apricot, buttery yellow and tangerine that just melts me.
