Originating in Singapore (go figure) at the Raffles Hotel around 1915, this sling is a great refuge on a hot day in the tropics. The recipe I'm using is from the Death & Company book, and it seems to be based on the original or as close to the original version as we can get. Read the history pieces linked below for more on that.
Put all the ingredients in a shaker. Add just a couple of ice cubes and give it a shake for only 5-10 seconds. Pour into a glass over ice. Garnish with a cherry and, if you have it, pineapple.
