While the Singapore Sling cocktail is not the most common cocktail choice, the alcoholic concoction is still integral to the history of Singapore in the Straits Settlements.
Back then, women drinking in public was frowned upon and social etiquette has deterred them to do so. But the creation of the Singapore Sling in 1915 has since changed the ladies’ fate forever.
Gone are the conservative days where Singaporeans are reluctant to splurge on a cocktail. In fact, cocktails are all the rage now with the ever-increasing number of cocktail bars and popup events etc. Unsurprisingly, Singapore’s Singapore Cocktail Week last year was a huge success and the exciting event will be returning next month from 12 to 19 March 2016.
Mark down your calendar as you will not want to miss this boozy celebration. Singapore Cocktail Week would be taking place across the sunny island in several places such as cocktail bars, gourmet restaurants and even Holland Village Food Court. The ticketed event is expanding twofold and it includes cocktail pairing events, masterclass workshops and more.
With so much ongoing during the festival, it can be a challenge to decide which program to sign up for. Here are the highlights from Singapore Cocktail Week 2016 so you can work on a plan for you and your drinking buddies.
