Margarita and Singapore Sling

Margarita from Mexico


Like all classic drinks, the Margarita`s origins are shrouded in legend. In most stories, Mexico is its native home; and since the drink is based on the Mexican spirit Tequila, it is widely believed to have originated from Mexico.
Whatever the setting, the tales remain the same - a beautiful woman named Margarita (thwarted love in some versions) and a bartender who created the drink `Margarita` in her memory are the protagonists.
Rub a lemon or lime peel around the rim of a cocktail glass to moisten and dip the rim into a saucer of salt. In a mixing glass, combine two ounces Tequila, one ounce Cointreau or Triple sec, one-half ounce lemon juice, one ounce lime juice and ice cubes; shake well.
Or add crushed ice and blend until slushy. Strain into salt-rimmed glass and serve.

Singapore sling


Gin is at the heart of Singapore Sling. The drink is so named because it is like a sling - a long drink usually sweetened with cherry. Singapore Sling was first mixed at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in 1915.In a shaker,combine two ounces of gin, one ounce cherry brandy, one teaspoon sugar,one teaspoon fresh lemon, half a dash each of Angostura bitters and Bendictine.Shake well with ice and strain into a glass. It is ready to serve.
