At the start of the 20th Century, the Singapore Sling became the ladies’ cocktail of choice. This elegant, vibrant-pink drink with a fruity taste and a summer vibe was originally created by Mr Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.

A Whisky Mac, or to use its full name, a Whisky Macdonald, is a cocktail made with whisky and ginger wine. The whisky is traditional expected to be a Scotch whisky, and usually a blended type.

The Whisky Mac is also known as "The Golfers′ Favourite" as apparently golfers drank them to ward off the cold after a chilly round of golf.
The Long Island Iced Tea was named for its visual resemblance to a non-alcoholic Iced tea. However, it couldn’t be more different in taste and alcoholic content, containing an array of beverages; typically made with vodka, light rum, tequila, triple sec and gin.

This cocktail has a much higher alcohol concentration than most long drinks due to the relatively small amount of mixer used and the combination of several alcoholic beverages.
