Singapore Sling Cocktail

"Versions of this classic from the eponymous Asia-Pacific Island realm are as plentiful as grains of sand. This version tends toward the cherry side versus traditional citrus but keeps the bubbly topping of club soda."

1 ½ ounces gin

1 ounce Bénédictine liqueur

½ ounce cherry liqueur

1 ounce lime juice

¼ ounce simple syrup (2:1)

2 ounces club soda

lemon slice, for garnish

Maraschino cherry, if desired

Pour everything but the club soda into your favorite shaker filled with ice. Jiggle like you got sand in your pants until its well blended. Rim a highball glass of cubes with lemon (we like that tartness with the bubbly sweet of the Sling), then strain in the liquid loveliness and top with the club soda.
