The extension of the circuit breaker means that we need to wait yet another month before we can hit our favourite hotel bars for a much needed drink or ten. 

Understanding the pain that most of us are in, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney has shared a recipe for its signature cocktail, the Sydney Sling. The Sydney Sling is a nod to the hotel’s Singaporean roots, The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts, which also owns and operates The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore

Both hotels feature a signature Singapore Sling cocktail – the Sydney Sling is local version of the Singaporean classic and is just what we need to take us through till the lockdown is lifted.

Sweet, but with just the right amount of spice‘, the Sydney Sling is the ultimate happy hour tipple. 

Here’s What You Will Need

45ml gin -The Fullerton Hotel Sydney uses Four Pillars 58.8 Gin

45ml blood orange juice – grapefruit juice is a great substitute  

15ml hibiscus liqueur – elderflower Liqueur is a great substitute  

10ml ginger liqueur – alternatively, double up on ginger juice 

25ml fresh lime juice  

10ml fresh ginger juice 

10ml Grenadine 

20ml sugar syrup – see recipe below 

Dehydrated ginger slice – or any fruit of your choice, to garnish

The Steps 

1.       Combine the ingredients and shake together vigorously for five seconds.

2.       Strain into your desired glass over ice and enjoy.

Making The Sugar Syrup 

Making sugar syrup requires equal parts sugar and water. You can also make a thicker style syrup by adding two parts sugar to one-part water.

1.       Boil the water in a saucepan, add the sugar and stir until it dissolves. 

2.       Remove from heat and allow to cool. 

3.       Store in a firmly sealed bottle or container in the fridge where it can keep for a few weeks.

Bottoms up!
