Straits Sling is thought to be the original name of the Singapore Sling and in his 1922 Cocktails and How to Mix Them Robert Vermeire gives the following recipe for the drink:
2 dashes of Orange Bitters
2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
The juice of half a lemon
1/8 gill of Bénédictine
1/8 gill of Dry Cherry Brandy
1/8 gill of Gin
Pour into a tumbler and fill up with cold Soda Water.
In his 1948 Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, David A. Embury calls for "Cherry Brandy (Kirsch)" in his Singapore Sling and this Straits Sling recipe is adapted from this recipe.
