Cocktail: Origines du Sling | Bartender: Jean-Félix Desfossés

The “”Origines du Sling”” is part of my new cocktails menu at the Bistro Le SAM, Château Frontenac cocktail bar. Made with Tanqueray No. Ten, Dillon’s Cherry Gin, Dom Benedictine, lime , Ms Better’s Bitters Pineapple Star & Anise and a splash of soda. This cocktail is to me what should have always been a Singapore Sling.
