From journal SMS: Singapore Sling
April 4, 2005
I have to admit that the Singapore Sling was pretty watered down, sort of like Jell-O without the pectin to thicken it. It was worth it once just to say I have tried one, the experience being priceless and all, but if you're on a budget, I'd buy one and share it with your six best friends so you can all say you tried it but are only out a buck or two.

The Long Bar is similar to the Raffles Hotel in a colonial style. There is one funny detail here; at several places in this bar you see big bags with monkey nuts. Just fill a basket with nuts, and eat them with your drink. Don`t worry about the shells; you just can throw these on the floor. I know it is strange, but at this Singapore spot you must litter.
So it happens when you visit this bar in the evening hours you really walk on a carpet of shells. What you find in every tourist guide (and if you ask me, it is a bit of a must when you visit Singapore) is the suggestion to taste the famous Singapore Sling Cocktail served in this bar. This Singapore Sling was created here around 1900 by the Hainanese-Chinese bartender, Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon. For some time the recipe of this cocktail was a secret, locked away in a hotel safe, but nowadays you can get it from the friendly waiters.
