Nightlife in Singapore

Day 2

sunny 30 °C

After a long afternoon of shopping we decided it was time to get out and see the nightlife! It is GORGEOUS here at night. All the sights and sounds! We found our way to the Raffles Hotel, which we have learned is famous for the Singapore Sling - which is quite a popular drink AND quite delicious! We hung around in the lounge of the hotel and talked to some of the locals who were working there. They told us some of the must-see attractions in Singapore, which includes Sentosa Island. The waiter told us that Sentosa Island is quite popular and has a long sheltered beach and recently opened Universal Studios Singapore! We all got very excited for that and decided that was something we just HAD to go see.
Another attraction we were told to go visit was Jurong Bird Park. There are over 8,000 birds and 600 species in this park! That's a lot of birds. We all laughed because Jenn doesn't like birds, but we're making her go anyway.

After visiting this hotel and finding out all this incredible information and destinations to go visit we gave our thanks for the visit and decided to walk down Bugis Street to check out the shops. It's known for its cobblestone streets, glass-roofed Bugis Junction. We were shocked because Bugis Street is most reowned for its nightly parade of garishly dressed prostitutes. On our adventure down Bugis Street we ran into a club called Club 5. Needless to say we had a great time, drank the night away, and woke up the next morning feeling slight hungover. We needed some fresh air... dun dun dun stay tuned for day 3!

So what exactly is the Singapore Sling? You mentioned it was a drink, but what's in it? Would you recommend it to anyone?

Sounds like you're having a good time in Singapore with all that great weather, enjoy the rest of your trip!

This is the recipe for the Singapore Sling:
1 1/2 ounce (30 ml) gin
1/2 ounce (15 ml) Heering Cherry Liqueur
1/4 ounce (7.5 ml) Cointreau
1/4 ounce (7.5 ml DOM Benedictine
4 ounces (120 ml) pineapple juice
1/2 ounce (15 ml) lime juice
1/3 ounce (10 ml) grenadine
dash Angostura bitters

We would definately reccomend this choice of beverage! It is delicious and tropical tasting.
