Aperol Sling Cocktail – Singapore Sling Inspired

Singapore Sling is an amazing cocktail – I was even lucky enough to try the real thing at it’s place of origin, Raffles Hotel, Singapore. Here I’ve adapted an Italian twist on the famous sling. Aperol has a fruity but more bitter taste to it which balances the cocktail from the sugary heights of the original sling.
