Cheery HeeringCheery Heering

Cherry Heering celebrated 200 years of the Singapore Sling, with all its historical references and myths, at this event during Tales of The Cocktail where three of the world’s best bars took over Chris Hanna’s French 75 bar in New Orleans to serve their twist on the Singapore Sling to VIPs.

Guests were given the opportunity to vote for their favourite recipe with carnival beads (that’s how favour is shown in New Orleans). Inevitably, with so many great cocktails and strings of beads, the result was either a draw, or all three teams came joint first. Either way it was a party – a party helped along by Dale DeGroff who served his own take on a classic Singapore Sling and, assisted by Lorenzo Antinori of Charles H Bar, told the history of the Sling.
