Two Wednesdays ago, I decided to make a drink that I had spotted in Gary Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails series called the Haji Sling. Ian Loh created this recipe at Helvetica in Perth, Australia, as an Angostura-based Singapore Sling riff. He dubbed the libation after the "quirky" Haji Laneway in Singapore. With Angostura-heavy Tiki-like drinks such as the Stormy Mai Tai and the Trinidad Sour being so tasty, I was quite excited to see the results here.
