Singapore Punch (Shelter)
Gin, Aperol, Cherry Liqueur, Bénédictine, Soda water, Lime juice
Shake, strain over ice and soda in a Collins, garnish with a cherry and orange flag.
My take on the Singapore/Raffles Sling, staying somewhat true to the (probable) original recipe of gin/cherry/Bénédictine/lime/water while introducing the fruitiness and effervescence that guests expect from the drink (and keeping the pour cost down via reduced Benny/Heering). Taking its cue from the Eclipse's Heering/Aperol combo, this is still not one of my favorite drinks--I think it could benefit from a barrel-aged bass note or a bright top one--but it's flavorful, approachable, refreshing, and not the slop of syrups and juices that most Singapores are. Most importantly from a service point of view, it's the right color.
