To make Popsugar's Singapore sling, add 2 ounces of gin, 3/4 ounce of Cherry Heering, 2 teaspoons of Bénédictine and 2 teaspoons of orange liqueur to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add 2 ounces of pineapple juice, 3/4 ounce of fresh lime juice, 2 dashes of grenadine and 1 dash of Angostura bitters. Mix the ingredients, strain the cocktail into an ice-filled glass, and top it with a splash of club soda. Garnish the cocktail with a twist of orange, a sprig of mint, and a maraschino cherry.

Alternatively, make Absolut's Singapore sling recipe by combining 2 parts of gin, 2 parts pineapple juice, 3/4 part cherry liqueur and 3/4 part lemon juice in a shaker filled with ice. Add 1/4 part triple sec, 1/4 part grenadine and two dashes of bitters. Shake the mixture, and pour it into a glass filled with ice. Top it with soda water, and garnish it with an orange slice and a cherry.

To Drinks Mixer's simplified version, add 1/2 ounce of grenadine to the bottom of a glass. Fill it with ice, add 1 ounce of gin, and nearly fill the glass with equal parts of club soda and sour mix. Top it with 1/2 ounce of cherry brandy.
