A Gin Sling is a simple drink that is made with regular table sugar, gin and soda water mixed in a cocktail shaker and poured into a collins or highball glass filled with crushed ice. The Gin Sling has never been as popular as the Singapore Sling, a drink made of lemon juice, dry gin and cherry brandy, but the Gin Sling is a wonderful drink that gin purists will appreciate. This recipe makes one Gin Sling, on the rocks.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice.

  2. 2

    Add the sugar and gin to the cocktail shaker and shake gently for 10 to 15 seconds. Shaking too hard will bruise the gin.

  3. 3

    Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into a collins or highball glass half-filled with crushed ice.

  4. 4

    Fill the glass with soda water and garnish the drink with a twisted lemon peel. Serve immediately.

Tips and warnings

  • If you prefer, use simple syrup in the cocktail instead of the icing sugar.
  • To add a tropical flavour, try adding one-half ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice or Rose’s sweetened lime juice.
