Prince William and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, arrived in Singapore Tuesday in high style to embark on an eight-day Jubilee tour. (The duo was in town to mark 40 years since Queen Elizabeth II first visited, according to CBS News.) While there, they are staying at the famous Raffles Hotel Singapore, which will celebrate its 125th anniversary September 16.

Named for Sir Stamford Raffles, who founded the city of Singapore, the Colonial-style has hosted notables and dignitaries since its institution. Around the turn of the century, Raffles Singapore's Long Bar became the birthplace of the "Singapore Sling," a concoction created by bartender Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon (check out the original recipe below, plus a how-to video in the slideshow.)

Upon arrival following a 14-hour flight, the royal couple toured Singapore's famous Botanic Gardens and viewed an orchid named for William's late mother, Princess Diana.

Singapore Sling:

30 ml Gin
15 ml Heering Cherry Brandy
120 ml pineapple juice
15 ml lime juice
7.5 ml Cointreau
7.5 ml Dom Benedictine
10 ml Grenadine
A Dash of Angostura Bitters
Garnish with a slice of pineapple and cherry

While abroad, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make stops in Malaysia, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu, People.com reported.

  • How to Make a Singapore Sling

    The Singapore Sling was originally created by Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the early 20th century. It is a wonderful drink that we probably have all heard of, but perhaps have never had. And because this recipe is often incorrectly recorded in most recipe books, even if you think you've had it, you probably haven't.
