Cruise Cocktail Recipe: Classic Gin Sling

How to make a classic Gin Sling cocktail. This is the original before it went to Singapore featuring Gin, Sweet Vermouth and Lemon. A nice blend of sweet and tart creates a classic flavor profile that's really refreshing.


1 1/2 oz gin

3/4 oz simple syrup

1/2 oz sweet vermouth

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice (about half a lemon)

3 dashes Angostura bitters

Tonic water or club soda.

Lemon peel for garnish


Add ice to a cocktail shaker

Add all ingredients except the tonic water to the shaker.

Shake well for at least 10 seconds

Strain into a highball or old fashioned glass.

Top off with tonic water, stir gently to incorporate the tonic water.


Setting up a good, functional home bar just takes some basic tools. Learn more here!

The use of large ice cubes made especially for cocktail drinks means less water melt into your drink.
