One of my mother's dreams to to have a Singapore Sling in Singapore. I know some of you may think she should try to have a different dream, but hey, she's 72 years old and she has had this dream since she was a teenager watching those now classic movies which made the Sling famous around the world. The last time we were in Singapore, she had to settle for a mango sling at a posh hotel's New Year buffet, but on this trip I'd like to find her the real thing.
I understand Raffles Hotel's version is a pre-mixed drink, and although it's supposedly the original location, I'd like to avoid it (and its S$24 price tag). Does anyone have any suggestions for a freshly-made Singapore Sling that's less than S$24? Actually, I don't mind paying S$24 for it, as long as it is freshly made and good. A non-nightclub atmosphere would be best (she's 72, remember), but a nice lounge with jazz or a piano player would be good, but not necessary. It's the sling that's important.
Or should we just stick to the one we can get on Singapore Airlines?
