Cocktail of the Week #21: Singapore Sling

Just the name makes one think of tacky tiki bars.

It also makes me think of Hunter S. Thompson. He and his lawyer drink these while preparing for the assignment that kicks off “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

But who would imagine a tropical drink whose main component is… gin? Gin usually brings to mind images of Viceroy Era India or tales from Dickens, not South Seas Islands or hula-themed bars.

That being said: it is magnificent. Perhaps the best tropical drink out of this deck, thus far.

A hit, people! A truly magnificent hit!

Hits: 14
Misses: 12
