The Singapore Sling is a cocktail that was invented by Ngiam Tong Boon, a bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel Singapore before 1915. The drink was supposedly created to please the ladies, so in that great tradition of chick drinks, it’s pretty, pink, and hides its kick behind a deceptively sweet demeanor.

Daiquiri is a traditional Latin American drink, created with rum and fruit. No one is quite sure who made the first strawberry daiquiri, but the classic daiquiri made without strawberries has quite a bit of history. According to tradition, the daiquiri was created by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer working in the little town of Daiquiri, Cuba.
Instructions: In a blender, combine ice, sugar and strawberries. Pour in lime juice, lemon juice, rum and lemon-lime soda. Blend until smooth. Pour into cocktail glasses and serve.
Mexico has certainly struck gold with Tequila. This type of brandy is mass distilled from a central american plant: de blue agave. Tequila Sunrise was created at the resort & spa circa late 1930s-early 1940s. A frequent guest who loved tequila asked the bartender, Gene Sulit, to surprise him with a refreshing drink he could enjoy poolside.

The mojito may have a trendy reputation outside of Cuba. One of my summer favorites Cocktails is the mojito, which has become very popular over the last few years. Many claim it was crafted in Cuba in the late 1800s. Others elaborate on this theory saying that the mojito was the preferred beverage of Sir Francis Drake as early as the 1500s.
