5 Easiest Asian Cocktails We Love

There’s something unique about Asian flavours that we can’t help but be inspired to make a gin cocktail from it! 

We’ll take things a bit further and translate this passion into cocktails. 

If you want to elevate your weeknight, try something new like these Asian inspired cocktails

Of course, we start off with a cocktail that’s close to home, the Singapore Sling! 

We’d like to think this is an Asian take on the gin sling. The cocktail was created back in 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a bartender at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel in Singapore. This could be the most popular Asian concoction. You can definitely recreate this smooth and sweet drink at your home and discover why it has become an icon in the cocktail scene.
