For TBT: A Singapore Sling.

It's the 100 year anniversary of the Singapore Sling being invented - right here, at the Raffles Hotel. Can't think when I last had one, probably at the original Ruby Tuesday's on Cumberland Ave in K'Ville.  It seemed only right we had one, particularly since the Raffles hotel is closing in a couple of days for a huge renovation.  We hear it will take 1.5 years.

They are still celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Singapore Sling (1915) being invented; right here, at this Raffles Hotel. Can’t think when I last had this gin-based concoction, probably at the original Ruby Tuesday’s on Cumberland Ave in K’ville.  Of course, we had to have one in the Raffle’s Long Bar, particularly since the Raffles is closing in a couple of days for a huge renovation. We hear it will take 1.5 years. BTW, one drink is $22/US.  Cheers!

 

 

 

About KFBuchsbaum

A lover of words, learning something new every day, exploring new places, and meeting people from different cultures is what feeds my spirit. One significant thing I learned from my years in market research is that time away from an experience dilutes the memories.  You lose the highs and lows and end up with middle-of-the-road impressions.  The reason I started to blog, was to capture experiences real-time, in the moment.  I hope my moments help you relive some of your own great adventures or maybe plan some new.
