Get your Sling on — and head to Berlin


The Singapore Sling is up there in the pantheon of classic drinks and — as is the way with classics — it has seen a number of variations down the years. Now Cherry Heering, an iconic component in the Singapore Sling, is offering one top Australian bartender the chance to head to Berlin to put their twist on a Sling up against the best in the world.

Entries to the 2014 Peter F Heering Sling Awards open on April 22nd, so you’ve got some time to sling a few ideas together. Here’s a bit about the comp from Cherry Heering, and check out the video below:
