“For the love of Angostura Bitters.  A twist on the Singapore Sling, named after the quirky Haji Laneway in Singapore,” Ian Loh

20 ml (.66 oz) Angostura BittersOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA          Processed with VSCOcam with c2 preset

20 ml (.66 oz) Cherry Heering

20 ml (.66 oz) Bénédictine

20 ml (.66 oz) fresh lime juice

12.5ml (.4 oz) orgeat

Rum Float

1 lime wheel and one cherry, as garnishes

Shake over ice, reserving the rum, and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Float your rum of choice, and add the garnishes

gaz sez:   Oh yes, oh yes, oh, yes.  Gimme them Angostura Bitters, and marry them off to a couple of fine liqueurs, a touch of lime juice, and a dab of orgeat.  Simply divine.  My kind of summer drink, for sure.

    Oh my. Oh yes!!! A friend of mine that loves to bartend ans play with spirits made me one of these while our temperature is in triple digits. Cool and refreshing, yet with a warm flavor that reminds me of autumn.
