Created at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the 1910's.

This recipe is a more modern adaptation. The original recipe is based on pineapple juice instead of Sprite (among other changes).

Superb summer "refresher". Very fruity, with just the right amount of "sour". I can definitely see this being sipped on a summer's afternoon waiting for the B-B-Q. If you don't have lemon & Lime (such as sprite or 7 up) just go with lemonade, and add a lime wheel to the drink.

I always used Cherry Brandy, Grenadine and a dash of angostura bitters. I also use ginger ale instead of 7 up
