There are a lot of versions of this Singapore Sling, spring-ready cocktail, but it really is at its best when its done the classic way – without extra sugary syrups and cheap liqueurs. So if you can, treat yourself and find a good cherry liqueur to make your Singapore Sling. Be sure to serve it in a tall glass for maximum refreshment when the warmer weather finally hits. Hang in there a little longer, because the warmer weather is just around the corner!
