The Cocktail is a bitter Sling? – No, that’s not true. The Sling is a category of mixed drinks? – No, it isn’t. Read here what a Sling really is.

The Oxford English Dictionary writes: “Sling … Of doubtful origin … An American drink composed of brandy, rum, or other spirit, and water, sweetened and flavoured.[53- 214]

It also quotes a publication from 1807 in which Charles William Janson reports from America: “The European learns with astonishment, that the first craving of an American, in the morning, is for ardent spirits, mixed with sugar, mint, or some other hot herb; and which are called slings.” [54-299]

Also generally known is the newspaper article published in 1806, which states: “Cock tail … is a stimulating liquor, composed of Spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters”. [2]

So is the Sling a cocktail without bitters? We went in search of more clarity.

The category of Slings is a very old one, which can be traced back to the 18th century. In 1759, Israel Acrelius described it in his “History of New Sweden”, which was located in what are now the states of Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, [10] [11] with these words: “Sling, or long sup, half water and half rum, with sugar in it.[9-162]

For a better understanding of the slings, we need to take a closer look at the mentions in the old books. In the hope of providing a better overview, we have grouped them according to the individual spirits. In doing so, we do not cite all the findings, but only those that offer added value in the context of this study.

Since Israel Acrelius wrote that the Sling should be made with rum, we begin with the Rum Sling.

Rum Sling

About 25 years after Israel Acrelius’ description, Johann David Schöpf made a trip to North America in the years 1783 to 1784 and reports in connection with his stay in Charleston in South Carolina: “a Sling – equal parts rum and water;” – “a Sling – gleiche Theile Rum und Wasser;” [12-346]

Leonhard Ludwig Finke: Versuch einer allgemeinen medicinisch-praktischen Geographie. 1795, page 172. [13-172]

In 1795 Leonhard Ludwig Finke confirms these statements: “one part water and one part rum a Sliny;” – “ein Theil Wasser und ein Theil Rum à Sliny;” [13-172]

In 1833, James Edward Alexander reported from the USA in his travelogue: – “For the receipt-book let the following be copied: – First, Cocktail is composed of water, with the addition of rum, gin, or brandy, as one chooses – a third of the spirit to two-thirds of the water; add bitters, and enrich with sugar and nutmeg; in sling, the bitters are omitted.[55-299] [55-300]

An American book from 1848 describes the term sling as an Americanism: “SLING. A drink composed of equal parts of rum and water sweetened.[37-233]

In 1853, Alexander Majoribanks wrote about American drinks: – “Toddy they call sling; thus they have gin-sling and whisky-sling.[22-398]

In 1874 it is stated that a rum sling is a rum punch: “Rum-slim, or RUM SLING, rum punch.[8-274]

The book writes in general terms about the sling: “Sling, a drink peculiar to Americans, generally composed of gin, soda-water, ice and slices of lemon. At some houses in London GIN-SLINGS may be obtained.[8-295]

Brandy Sling

Brandy Sling also has a long history. The oldest reference we have been able to find comes from Jabez Fitch Jr. who was from Norwich in Connecticut. He served in Colonel Whiting’s regiment in 1756 and in Colonel Lyman’s regiment the following year in the expedition against Crown Point. In July 1775 he was appointed first lieutenant of the eighth company of the eighth Connecticut regiment, and remained in the service until December. [33-40] In his diary, under 20 October 1775, it is written: “In the morning our piquet were dismiss’d as usual, and I came up to Waterman’s with Col. Wyllys and Ens. Nevens, where we drauk some brandy sling and parted.[33-71]

Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society. 1895, page 74.

On 30 October 1775 it says: “I attended the alarm post, &c., in the morning as usual, after which I was invited down to Lt. Brewster’s markee to drink brandy sling, and after breakfast Capt. Jewett and I fix’d off for the general court martial at Smith’s tavern, and after a very long and spirited debate concerning Eb. Huntington’s being admitted as a member, which finally terminated in the affirmative, we went upon business and entered on the tryal of one [blank] for stealing Capt. Liscomb’s pocket book.[3-74]

The Brandy Sling was apparently popular originally. In 1852, a book was published reporting how in Otsego County, located in New York State, around 1800 or 1810, the Brandy Sling was not the only drink in use: “The fashions, in social life, have very much changed within the last forty or fifty years. Now, when a party meet, and wish to take a social glass, a brandy smash or whisky toddy is prepared for each. Then, on meeting at a country tavern, some one of the company would call for a brandy sling, or a rum or gin sling, which required a gill of liquor; this being properly mixed, with sugar and water, and stirred up with the toddy stick, till the compound almost foamed, was ready for a sprinkling of nutmeg, and was then handed to the one who called for it. He took a drink and handed it to his neighbour; who drank and passed it along till it was drank off, and the one who finished it called for another, each one generally calling for a sling before the sitting was completed.[50-88]

In 1849, the following is reported from the USA:”In this town, the recreation of the young people was chiefly in the ball-room, and parties, and playing the fiddle, and we met often at the tavern of this class-leader, and he would make the brandy sling for us, and was not at all backward in drinking himself, and very merry and lively, but naturally of a clever disposition, as most of the drunkard makers are; and if Green was not there they had a dull time, for they all said that Green was the leader of all the parties and balls.[49-11]

Putmam’s monthly magazine of American literature. 1855, page 240. [51-240]

In 1855, the Brandy Sling was also spiced: “hot and well-spiced brandy-sling.” [51-240]

In 1860, a travelogue wrote: “The best diversion of the American is the public-houses, of which, including the hotels, there are 6-7000 in New York“. [52-425]To offer the reader a glimpse of the nocturnal life of this cosmopolitan city, I take him down about 400 paces from glittering Broadway to East River, into the heart of New York, where the end points of various alleys meet – to “fife points”. Here in this row of the most wretched houses is the stomping ground of New-York’s murderers, thieves, and a rabble addicted to all vices. It is a place to be avoided by day and dared to be visited by night only when accompanied by a police officer. As soon as darkness descends, the mysterious life begins here and reaches its peak around midnight. Let us enter this low house on the corner of Anthony and Orange Street. In this house lives a German “grocer” or spice merchant who deals in all sorts of things; … . But further back in the boutique … there is a tavern decorated with all kinds of bottles and glasses. A large kettle of water stands on the stove, and twenty to thirty men and women are busy in front of this entrenchment. Almost all of them have a glass in their hand, although most of them are barely covered enough to conceal their nakedness; in pairs or threes and fours they stand in groups and discuss, swaying from side to side; The hectic red cheeks, the dull eyes, the scratched nose and the forehead often covered with dried blood, the slurred tongue and the insolent gestures testify to the fact that the deepest dejection, the highest potency of human depravity is presented to us here, that we are standing at the entrance to an earthly hell. Almost all nations are represented among these men and women, but the majority of the women are Irish, while the men, with few exceptions, are native Americans or Negroes and Mulattoes. When I stepped behind the high entrenchment with a few acquaintances and we approached the tavern, over which the gas flames spread a blinding light, we saw ourselves surrounded by women who demanded a drink from us. The police captain accompanying us did not stop them, for they knew that the authorities only intervene here when more serious things are involved than “gin” or “brandy-sling” (genever or cognac with warm water, sugar and a piece of lemon peel in it). They drink so long, and it remains peaceful until the alcohol turns these unfortunates into demons and furies, until the knife is drawn, or the terrible “slung-shot” (a leather strap with a heavy lead ball at the end) shatters one or the other skull, so a bloodbath seems inevitable, and consequently the police, summoned by the murder-cry of the poor victims, rush in and seize the culprits. More than one policeman has lost his life in the struggle with these desperate people, and in the confusion that prevails here it is largely impossible to discover the true culprit who has struck the stab or the blow.[52-426] [52-427]

– “Die beste Zerstreuung des Amerikaners sind die öffentlichen Lokale, deren es, die Hotels mit eingerechnet, 6-7000 in New York giebt.[52-425]Um dem Leser einen Blick in das nächtliche Leben dieser Weltstadt zu bieten, führe ich ihn etwa 400 Schritt von dem glänzenden Broadway nach East-River hinab, in das Herz von New York, wo die Endpunkte verschiedener Gassen zusammenstoßen – nach „fife points“. Hier in dieser Reihe der elendesten Häuser ist der Tummelplatz von New-Yorks Mördern, Dieben und einem allen Lastern verfallenen Gesindel. Es ist eine Stätte, die man bei Tage meidet und die man in der Nacht nur zu besuchen wagt, wenn man von einem Polizeibeamten begleitet ist. Sobald die Dunkelheit herabsinkt, beginnt hier das geheimnisvolle Leben, und gegen Mitternacht erreicht es seinen Höhepunkt. Treten wir in dieses niedere Haus an der Ecke der Anthony- und Orange-Street. In diesem Hause wohnt ein deutscher „grocer“ oder Gewürzkrämer, der mit allen möglichen Dingen handelt; … . Aber weiter hinten in der Boutique … befindet sich eine mit allen möglichen Flaschen und Gläsern geschmückte Schenke. Ein großer Kessel mit Wasser steht auf dem Ofen, und zwanzig bis dreißig Männer und Weiber sind vor dieser Verschanzung beschäftigt. Sie haben fast Alle ein Glas in der Hand, obgleich die meisten von ihnen kaum hinreichend bedeckt sind, um ihre Blößen zu verheimlichen; paarweise oder zu Dreien und Vieren stehen sie in Gruppen da und diskutieren, von der einen Seite zur anderen schwankend; die hektischen rothen Wangen, die matten Augen, die zerkratzte Nase und die oft mit getrocknetem Blut bedeckte Stirn, die lallende Zunge und die frechen Geberden zeugen davon, daß sich uns hier die tiefste Gesunkenheit, die höchste Potenz menschlicher Verworfenheit darbietet, daß wir am Eingang einer irdischen Hölle stehen. Unter diesen Männern und Weibern sind fast alle Nationen repräsentiert, doch sind unter den Weibern die Mehrzahl Irländerinnen, während die Männer mit wenigen Ausnahmen eingeborene Amerikaner oder Neger und Mulatten sind. Als ich mit einzelnen Bekannten hinter die hohe Verschanzung trat und wir uns der Schenke näherten, über welche die Gasflammen ein blendendes Licht verbreiteten, sahen wir uns von Weibern umringt, welche von uns zu trinken verlangten. Der uns begleitende Polizeihauptmann hinderte sie nicht, denn sie wußten, daß die Obrigkeit hier nur einschreitet, wenn es sich um ernstere Dinge handelt, als um „gin“ oder „brandy-sling“ (Genevre oder Cognac mit warmem Wasser, Zucker und einem Stück Zitronenschale darin). Sie trinken so lange, und es bleibt friedlich so lange, bis der Alkohol diese Unglücklichen in Dämonen und Furien verwandelt, bis das Messer gezogen wird, oder der fürchterliche „slung-shot“ (ein Lederriemen mit einer schweren Bleikugel am Ende) den einen oder anderen Schädel zerschmettert, also ein Blutbad unumgänglich erscheint, und demzufolge die Polizei, herbeigerufen durch das murder-Geschrei der armen Opfer, hereindringt und sich der Schuldigen bemächtigt. Mehr als ein Policeman hat sein Leben im Kampf mit diesen verzweifelten Menschen gelassen, und in dem hier herrschenden Wirrwarr ist es großentheils unmöglich, den wahren Schuldigen zu entdecken, welcher den Sticj oder den Schlag geführt hat.[52-426] [52-427]

The Brandy Sling was often used for medical reasons. The following references are given as examples: 1811 [48-195], 1831 [39-369], 1832 [43-182], 1833 [42-475] [44-10], 1834 [45-239]. It was also served hot: 1809 [46-289], 1810 [47-44], 1811 [48-136], 1830 [38-324], 1833 [41-197] [41-538], 1838 [3-249].

Medicine books do not usually specify how to prepare a Brandy Sling. A medicine book from 1826, published in Noorwich in New York State, is an exception. It says: “Some were cured by drinking gingered wine, others were cured by drinking brandy sling made with hot water, and made very sweet with loaf sugar; one was cured by eating plentifully of ripe black berries. Three or four have been cured by taking a small portion of rheubarb and soda every other day, and at the same time drank burnt brandy and loaf sugar, and applied to the bowels a wilted burdock dipt in vinegar.[1-279]

Whiskey Sling

The whiskey sling was also drunk for medicinal reasons. For example, these references are given: 1846 [17-17], 1857 [19-410], 1867 [15-130] [24-98], 1872 [20-68], 1879 [21-130], 1881 [14-379]. It was also served as a hot drink: 1864 [23-134] [23-143], 1895 [16-915].

A journal published in New York in 1855 reported: “Our neighbors are not a progressive people. They chooso the good old way their fathers trod. They feed their babies toddy or whiskey sling (I don’t know which they call it), and think it does them good— quiets them when they cry and makes them sleep. Poor little innocents, it makes them dead drunk! I did not know I had such neighbors until a few days ago. I called to see a newborn baby, a fine, healthy-looking daughter, of whom the parents seemed very proud. The father began telling how the baby cried the night before, and he fed it with sweetened whiskey and water until it went to sleep and slept all night!! Dead drunk before it had ever seen the sun rise!![18-113]

Gin Sling

In the diary of Jabez Fitch, Jr, which we have already described at Brandy Sling, it is written under 9 September 1775: “As Mr. Adams and I were bro’t to by Capt. Peters who insisted on going with us to a suttler’s where the gin sling pass’d very briskly untill it found a passage through the said capt’s body into the chimney, with a very good grace and great confidence.[33-55]

Sailors also appreciate the Sling. A tale from the 1786 writes: “And after straining the ship under a heavy press of sail for about an hour, during which time the lad Onesimus was by the captain sent to the steward, for several glasses of gin-sling, an article the captain when at sea was rather partial to, but more especially in stormy weather, as it helped to pass away that rather tardy and slow creeping jade called time; this article, viz., the gin-sling, soon gave an oscillatory motion to his blood, which soon flew into the wheels of his imagination, and made them fly round with the greater velocity, so that the captain saw not the danger the ship and masts were in; the boatswain and the experienced crew of the ship became seriously alarmed for the safety of the ship, and prayed the chief mate to go and inform of her danger; which he did: but the reply was, there is no cause of alarm, followed with a command to Onesimus, to bring him another small glass; and just as he had received the same, a heavy head sea struck the ship, and away went the foremast by the board, taking with it the main-top-mast close by the cap with all the sails as they were set, into the sea, and leaving the ship a complete wreck in a moment of time.[32-77] [32-78]

In 1806, a diary reports near Bedford in Pensylvania on 25 September that Gin Sling was also drunk hot: “Stopped before night at the forks of the “Grade road,” and to conclude the adventures of the day the landlady brought me a hot gin sling in a cup and saucer, which I think a good invention. This place is four miles from Bedford.[35-173]

Around the year 1810, gin sling was apparently one of the popular and much drunk drinks in Charleston, South Carolina: “The gentry then returned to town, and spent the day in dinner parties, and the evening in balls and concerts. The middling and lower classes of the people remained on the ground, and diverted themselves with some hack races, after which they repaired to the booths, and finished the day in humble imitation of their superiors. A number of sailors enjoyed themselves with their girls, in the smaller booths; and the negroes, with their dingy misses, came in for a share of the fun. At night they all came reeling into town, well charged with wine, rum-punch, gin sling, and sangoree.[25-389] [25-390]

The popularity of the Gin Sling is confirmed in another book by the same author, in which he reports on his journey through North America in 1807 and 1808: “Rum, brandy, or gin sling, is a common beverage for travellers throughout the States; and the stage-coachmen in the course of a journey, take “a special good quantity of it.” Sometimes it consists only of the liquor and water, sweetened with sugar, and drank cold; but in general it is made of milk, with ginger or nutmeg grated into it.[26-219]

Adam Hodgson & Samuel Whiting: Remarks during a journey through North America. 1823, page 74-75. [27-74] [27-75]

The ubiquity of Gin Sling is confirmed by a report from the year 1823: “The habitual use of ardent spirits is indeed very general. Even in the Eastern States it is not uncommon; but in the Middle, and still more in the Southern States, it prevails to a lamentable extent. Under the denominations of anti-fogmatics, mint julep, and gin sling, copious libations are poured out on the altars of Bacchus, by votaries who often commence their sacrifices at an early hour in the morning, and renew them at intervals during the day; and yet I have not seen six instances of brutal intoxication since I landed in America, — nor, except among the poor corrupted frontier Indians, twenty cases in which I had reason to believe the faculties were in any degree disordered. The decanters of brandy which are placed on the dinner tables at the inns for the guests to help themselves, without additional charge, I have never seen used but with moderation; and, on the whole, I would say decidedly that, taking America generally from Maine to Louisiana, (you know that I have seen few of the Western States,) the sin of drinking to excess, prevails less extensively there than in England — that, whatever may be the injury to the constitution from the common use of spirits instead of malt liquor, there is less derangement of the faculties, less waste of time, and perhaps of money, and far less misery entailed on suffering families from intemperate drinking in this country than in our own. There is, indeed, a far more dreadful squandering of time in bar-rooms in many parts of America; but it is in cigar-smoking, and is not generally attended with pinching effects, or a deserted wife, or hungry children.[27-74] [27-75]

“Antifogmatic” meant a stimulating drink, usually made from rum or whiskey, which was taken before work in rough weather to ward off the negative effects of the same. [56]

The Gin Sling was also spiced. In 1825 it is said: “The New York Evening Post says, “It is stated with unshaken confidence, and as the result of actual and repealed experience, that half a tumbler of gin sling, well covered with powdered nutmeg, proves a speedy and efficacious stop in that dangerous and alarming complaint, a bleeding of the lungs. It was the discovery of accident, but has never been known to fail, though often tried, even when all other known means have been resorted to in vain.”[28-308]

In 1829, the Sling was ubiquitous in Canada. A traveller writes: “I have been through all the Canadian cities, towns, and villages, worth speaking about — Quebec, Montreal, Kingston, York, &c. The inhabitants are tolerably civil. In a common tavern, your food and bed will ease your pocket of a dollar a-day; if in an hotel, half as much more, exclusive of wines, which are so so — no great shakes, a dollar a bottle — and grogs in proportion. The fashionable young fellows follow a good deal the manners of the Americans — drink gin sling, sangaree, and lemonade, smoke segars, and in the morning take bitters, cocktail, and soda-water.[29-38]

By 1836, Gin Sling was ubiquitous, as evidenced by a report on the Great Lakes:- „The bar on board the Thomas Jefferson was never empty; the cry was “Mint Julep,” “Rum,” “Whiskey,” ” Gin Sling,” from morning to night; the demands often faster than the bar-keeper could supply them.[31-52]

In 1839 Francis Joseph Grund wrote about his arrival in New York, about the Brighton Pavilion on Staten Island: “The favourite drink, however, seemed to be mint-julep; for a huge mass of ice and a forest of mint, together with two large bottles of French and peach brandy, gave, alas! but too positive proofs of the incapability of the land-lord to maintain the balance of power among spirits so different in action and principle. The bar was thronged, even at this early hour, with young men from sixteen to twenty-four years of age, for whom the busy barkeeper was preparing ice-punch, mint-juleps, port and madeira sangarie, apple-toddy, gin- sling, &c. with a celerity of motion of which I had heretofore scarcely seen an example.[34-23] [34-24]

In 1844 it is reported from Galveston in Texas: “Our livery-stable keeper, Captain Cary, earned a great portion of his freedom money in this way. A drunken rascal he was, with a head covered with black wool and shaped like a sugar loaf. He let out a great many horses to our sailors at different times; and when we first arrived, they seemed to prefer a ride to the grog shop; though there was every variety of apple-toddy, egg-nogg, gin-sling, hot tom-and-jerry, and juleps of every kind advertised at the numerous bar-rooms, in most tempting array.[36-299]

The Sling was also known in London. In a speech in Parliament in connection with the Great Exhibition of 1851, it is said: “But the Commissioners had resolved that the national taste should be further cultivated, if not in gardening, at least in one other respect. They had made arrangements to build one of the finest cafés in London, and to set up a great department of eating and drinking in connection with science and art. They relied apon the attractions of beer, cheap wine, and gin-sling. They intended to enlighten the people in all the science of adulteration, and to promote the art of drinking — it might be in moderation or it might be in excess. The grand central point and sine qua non of the whole scheme was to be this great tavern, from which the visitor should never be able to escape; they might lose sight of other features of the Exhibition, but of this never. He had no doubt that the Dilkusian party had already a new Cadogan in view who would draw a splendid income upon the refreshments supplied to rich and poor. What the tavern was to cost they did not exactly know; but twenty-two and a half acres were given for nothing and a grant of £50,000 for a stucco garden, to a society which had the right of excluding from it every one but its own members.[30-258] [30-259]

Other Slings

In 1828 it says: “it was not a rum sling; no, nor a gin sling; no nor a mint vater sling“. [5-8]

What did a sling cost?

Toronto was originally called York, and there was Abner Miles’ Inn, the most important, perhaps the first hotel in York. [4-98] Invoice lists have survived from this one, and we learn how expensive Sling was:

  • 17. June 1796 – Dr. Asa Johnson: Whiskey Sling 0£ 1s 6d [57-451]
  • 28. June 1796 – Dr. John Coon: 1/2 pint sling 0£ 3s 0d [57-451]
  • 2. July 1796 – Dr. David B. Morgan: gill sling 0£ 1s 6d [57-451]
  • 24. August 1796 – Dr. John Wilson: 1/2 pint sling 0£ 3s 0d [57-453]
  • 25. August 1796 – Dr. James Fedigre: 3 glasses sling 0£ 2s 9d [57-453]
  • 27. August 1796 – Dr. Winters: glass sling 0£ 1s 0d [57-453]
  • 29. August 1796 – Dr. John Coons: pint sling 0£ 3s 0d [57-453]
  • 1. September 1796 – John Coons: gill sling 0£ 1s 6d [57-453]
  • 12. December 1796 – Dr. John Wilson: breakfast and sling 3s [57-454]

From slightly more recent lists we see: In July 1798 Capt. Herrick drank “gill gin sling, 1 s. 3 d.” and “half-pint of gin sling, 3 s.” Capt. Demont drank “gill rum sling, 1 s. 3d.” and “gill rum, 1 s.” On July 5, Josiah Phelpsdrank drank “two gin slings, 2 s. 6 d.[7-45] On July 6, 1798, Billy Whitney drank “gill rum sling, 1 s. 6 d.[7-46]

Silas Hopkins owned an Inn in 1813, probably located in Minnesota, and according to his records, at that time a Gin Sling cost 12 1/2 cents, while a Brandy Sling cost twice that, $1/4. [40-138]

What is a Sling?

These quotes may suffice to give us an idea. We can state that in the first half of the 19th century, the Sling was ubiquitous and popular in North America. A few recipes have also been handed down, which are quite different:

  • Spirits, water (1783, 1795)
  • Spirits, soda water, lemon slices (1874)
  • Spirits, water, sugar (1759, 1808, 1848, 1853)
  • Spirits, water, sugar, nutmeg (1833, 1852)
  • Spirits, water, sugar, lemon zest (1860)
  • Spirits, sugar, mint (1807)
  • Milk, ginger, nutmeg (1808)

We can assume on this basis that Sling was rather a general term for an alcoholic drink. It seems unlikely that it described a separate, clearly delineated category, as is generally stated today. But in order to be able to make a well-founded statement here, it is necessary to statistically record the recipes from the bar books from 1862 onwards. Perhaps a different picture emerges here.

The Sling Recipes from 1862

We have categorised the recipes in the appendix. We follow the classification analogous to the categories already described. In the statistics shown here, we do not go into more detail about whether a recipe is “classic” (i.e. with water and possibly sugar), or “modern” (when alternatives are used instead of water and sugar) – because this distinction offers no added value here. A separate consideration of rum and whiskey, because we have taken these two spirits into account in the recipe collection, also does not add any value, and we refrain from doing so here. But cold and hot sling should be the subject of consideration.

Cold Sling

Cold Sling.
Cold Sling.

What we have already seen in the older recipes is also confirmed for the period after 1862. A Cold Sling is in reality either a Toddy or a Punch. Very rarely a Grog. And especially in more recent times, something quite different.

Hot Sling

Hot Sling.
Hot Sling.

The weighting of a Hot Sling is a little different, but the picture is the same. A Hot Sling is either a Toddy, a Punch, a Grog, a Skin or something entirely different.

Sling

Sling.
Sling.

For the interested reader, here is also a diagram for the Sling in general, regardless of whether it is hot or cold.

So we see: a Sling is not a category of its own; it is rather a collective term for a variety of categories, for example Grog, Toddy, Punch, Skin, or something else entirely. What does this mean in concrete terms? The Cocktail is not, as stated in 1806, a Sling with bitters, but a Toddy with bitters.

1892 James Mew & John Ashton: Drinks of The World. Seite 188. Slings.

Slings are very closely related to toddies. Their
difference is, indeed, infinitesimal, so far as we are able
to learn. 3

3 The Slang Dictionary, however, defines Sling as a drink peculiar
to Americans, generally composed of gin, soda-water, ice, and slices
of lemon. At some houses (understand public) in London gin
slings may be obtained. Francatelli has an exquisite note on Gin
Sling, which he directs to be sucked through a straw. “I fear that
very genteel persons will be exceedingly shocked at my words; but
when I tell them that the very act of imbibition through a straw
prevents the gluttonous absorption of large and baneful quantities
of drink, they will, I make no doubt, accept the vulgar precept for
the sake of its protection against sudden inebriety.”

1934 A. T. Neirath: Rund um die Bar. Seite 89. Slings und Toddies.

Die Slings und Toddies stellen sehr alte Bezeichnungen dar,
rangieren unter die Gruppe der langen Getränke und
können sowohl kalt, als auch heiß zubereitet werden.
Kennzeichnend für diese Art Getränke ist, daß für sie,
wenn sie kalt serviert werden, nur gewöhnliches Wasser
Verwendung findet. Jedoch ist es gewiß, daß man bei
Entstehung dieser Getränke auch künstliches Mineralwasser
verwendet hätte, wenn dieses damals schon bekannt gewesen
wäre. Kalt serviert fügt man diesen Getränken ein größeres
Stückchen Eis zu, ebenso gehört stets etwas Zuckerlösung
hinein. Für die heiße Zubereitung wird wie bei den Grogs
verfahren.

1934 A. T. Neirath: Rund um die Bar. Seite 286. Slings.

Sling als Getränkebezeichnung dürfte von „Schluck” oder
schlingen, schlucken hergeleitet sein, wie das Wort Sling
in diesem Falle übersetzt werden kann. Sicherlich ist die
Bezeichnung infoige eines zufäliigen Ausdrucks entstanden
und hat sich auf diese Weise eingebürgert.
Aus der Zusammensetzung der Slings kann geschlossen
werden, daß er der primitive Vorläufer aller mit Sodawasser
verdünnten Spirituosen-Getränke gewesen ist.
Die Slings werden sowohl heiß, als auch kalt getrunken und
ihr Grundstoff ist Gin, Whisky, Brandy oder Rum.
Hier das allgemein gültige Rezept:
1 Teelöffelvoll Zucker in etwas Wasser aufgelöst, dazu
1 Cocktailglas Gin, Rye Whisky, Weinbrand oder Rum
in einen Tumbler gegeben und mit Wasser aufgefüllt.
Beim kalten Sling gibt man 1—2 Stücke Eis dazu
und beim heißen Sling verwendet man kochendes
Wasser.

The cold and hot Slings are very old drinks. They are the fore-
runners of the present day Cobblers and Fizzes.
The cold Sling is prepared in the old-fashioned Cocktail glass, just
like the Toddy. Sugar dissolved in water, with the desired spirits
added and poured into an H. B., medium Tumbler or other me-
dium Bar glass, then filled up with cold water.
The hot Sling however is filled up with hot water, to which some
grated nutmeg has been added. Serve with a Bar spoon.

Les Slings chauds ou froids sont les boissons les plus originales et
les précurseurs des Cobblers et Fizzes d’aujourd’hui.
Le Sling froid est préparé dans le verre à cocktail, vieille façon,
comme le Toddy, done faites dissoudre du sucre dans I’eau, balan-
cez avec I’alcool demandé, versez dans un H. B. ou un Tumbler
moyen et remplissez avec de I’eau froide.
Le Sling chaud se prépare avec de I’eau chaude, et est servi avec
la cuiller à bar et poudré de muscade.

Die kalten und heissen Slings sind Urgetränke und die Vorläufer
der heutigen Cobblers und Fizzes. Der kalte Sling wird im old-
fashioned Cocktailglas zubereitet wie der Toddy, also Zucker mit
Wasser aufgelöst, gemischt mit den gewünschten Spirituosen, in ein
H.B. medium Tumbler (mittleres Barglas) hinübergegossen und mit
kaltem Wasser aufgefüllt. Der heisse Sling dagegen mit heissem
Wasser; er wird mit Barlöffel serviert. Muskat darauf streuen.

1938 Stanley Clisby Arthur: Famous New Orleans Drinks. Seite 78. Toddies, Clings, and Flips.

While we apply the name Toddy to that drink in
which we mix whiskey, gin, rum, or brandy with a little
sugared water, the original toddy was a far different
drink from that which we now imbibe under the same
name.
“Toddy” originally was the fermented sap obtained
from the incised spathes of various species of palms,
especially the wild date palm, and used as a beverage in
tropical countries. A Hindustani word, tart in the begin-
ning, it later became tarrie, then tary, terry, tadie, taddy,
toddey, toddie and, finally as we know it today, toddy.
Toddy is just another name for Sling, or vice versa.
For example a Hot Whiskey Sling calls for a lump of
sugar in a half-glassful of boiling water, a jigger of
whiskey, a small piece of lemon peel and a grating of
nutmeg. Now if you want a Hot Whiskey Toddy, du-
plicate the above and omit the nutmeg.
Some like’em hot, some like’em cold, some like’em
with gin, some with brandy, some with Scotch. But in
any case the addition or omission of nutmeg makes the
difference between toddy and sling.
The Kentucky Toddy is composed of a lump of sugar,
a little water, a twist of lemon peel, a full jigger of Bour
bon, a lump of ice, and a lot of stirring.

1938 Stanley Clisby Arthur: Famous New Orleans Drinks. Seite 80. Slings.

A Sling, so we are told by long-ago writers, is “an
American drink composed of brandy, rum, or other
spirit, and water, sweetened and flavored,” and had noth-
ing to do with “the slings and arrows of outrageous for-
tune,” so feelingly bespoken by Hamlet in his morose
soliloquy.
As long ago as 1788 a certain shipwrecked scribe re-
corded that he and his mates found “a case-bottle filled
with Holland’s [gin], of which each of us took a sling.”
This indicates the word originally had the same mean-
ing as “draught,” “pull,” or “swig,” as Americans de-
scribe the swigging of a healthy mouthful from a jug.
A Bitter Sling, quite a favorite in the old days as an
electioneering potion, was described in 1806 thus: “a
stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar,
water, and bitters.”

1946 Trader Vic: Trader Vic’s Book of Food and Drink. Seite 115. Hot Rum Sling.

Close your eyes for a moment and picture a
small fire beside a skating pond, with snow-laden
pines rising in the background. A little pot of
boiling water sends steam into the frosty air. Some­-
one pulls out a little bag of sugar, someone else
produces a lemon and a bottle of bitters from his
pocket, another donates a bottle of rum, and tin
cups appear mysteriously. A pleasant way to ward
off frostbite.
2 lumps sugar
Dash of Angostura bitteis
1/2 lemon
2 ounces Jamaica rum (Red Heart or Myers’s)
Boiling water
Dissolve sugar with a little boiling water in a
cup; add bitters, the juice of the lemon, rum, and

1948 David A. Embury: The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Seite 298. Slings and Toddies.

The dictionaries define both Slings and Toddies as
“mixtures of sweetened spirits and water.” While
Slings have always been served both hot and cold, the
Toddy was originally a hot drink only. Today, how-
ever, Toddies, as well as Slings, are served both hot
and cold. Slings are usually made with lemon and
either sugar or some sweet liqueur. Toddies usually
contain a thin slice of lemon or a piece of lemon peel
but no lemon juice. Also, they usually contain one or
more spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg.
These differences, however, are merely incidental and,
when served hot, it is difficult, if not impossible, to dis-
tinguish between a Sling and a Toddy. One distinction
between the cold drinks is that Toddies are usually
made with plain water. Slings with charged water or
ginger ale.

1948 David A. Embury: The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Seite 299. Irish Sling. Rum Sling. Scotch Sling. Whisky Sling.

1 teaspoonful Sugar Syrup
2 teaspoonfuls Lemon Juice
3 ounces of the selected Liquor
Combine the above in a goblet or large Highball glass.
Fill the glass with chilled, charged water for a cold
Sling or with boiling water for a hot Sling. Some
recipes omit the lemon juice. Others omit both the
lemon juice and sugar and use a few dashes of An-
gostura. Some recipes also call for dusting the top with
nutmeg. Query, is it then a Sling or a Sangaree?

1948 Trader Vic: Bartender’s Guide. Seite 395. Sangarees and Slings.

Sangarees are tall drinks, made like Old-Fashioneds
but without bitters, and are usually topped with a
dash of nutmeg. Slings, on the other hand, in their
simpler versions, are pointed up with bitters or a
similar type of flavoring and resemble enlongated
Old-Fashioneds with the addition of a little lemon
juice. With the exception of the Singapore Slings,
this entire group of drinks has little merit.

1949 Harry Schraemli: Das grosse Lehrbuch der Bar. Seite 275. Die Slings.

Die Slings sind punschähnliche Getränke, die man kalt
und warm zubereiten kann. In unserem Lande sind sie
nicht sehr populär, und man kann es sich ersparen, sie auf
der Barkarte aufzuführen. Man serviert sie entweder in
Ballongläsern oder in Groggläsern. Barlöffel beilegen.

Grundrezept für kalte Slings: In einem Ballonglas löst
man 2—3 Barlöffel Zucker mit etwas kaltem Wasser auf,
gibt dann einige kleine Stückchen Roheis, 1 Barlöffel Gre-
nadinesirup, den Saft von 1/2 Zitrone und 1 Glas (50 Gr.)
der gewünschten alkoholischen Flüssigkeit hinzu. Recht
gut umrühren und mit kaltem Wasser auffüllen.

Grundrezept für heisse Slings: In einem Grogglas löst
man 3—4 Barlöffel Zucker mit etwas heissem Wasser auf,
gibt dann den Saft von 1/2 Zitrone und 1 Glas (50 Gramm)
der im Rezept vorgeschriebenen alkoholischen Ingredienz
hinzu und füllt auf mit kochendem Wasser. Man reibt eine
Idee Muskatnuss auf das fertige Getränk.

Zucker mit einem Teelöffel Wasser und einem Stück Eis. Dann gibst Du
die nötige Dosis „Geist” aus der Flasche hinzu, würzt ihn mit einer auf
seinem munteren Spiegel schwimmenden Zitronen- oder Orangenschale
und: vor dem Trinken das Umrühren nicht vergessen!
Haben wir einen kalten Wintertag, so rate ich Dir, nimm heißes Wasser

1951 Charles H. Baker, Jr.: The South American Gentleman’s Companion. Seite 140. Georgetown Demerara Rum Sling.

THE GEORGETOWN DEMERARA RUM SLING, from the
GEORGETOWN CLUB, in BRITISH GUIANA
This little Club is so typically British-Colonial, and makes a com-
plete contrast set against memory of those huge masonry palaces that
house famous Latin Clubs throughout South America. This Sling, we
might mention, is a local Englishman’s trans-mixture of the world-
famous Singapore Gin Sling. And remember 1 thing: this drink must
be very cold indeed in order not to appear too sweet.

1 1/2 to 2 oz 151-Proof Demerara Rum
1 scant pony Cherry Heering
Juice 1/2 small lemon or whole lime, lime best
Dash of Angostura

Shake hard with big ice and strain into small highball glass, cap
with well-chilled club soda. Stir once; and finally — if you so wish — hit
with 2 or 3 dashes of Benedictine for aroma. Serve with straws and let
the Benedictine float on top where it will do most good. The citric
juice may be increased or decreased, to suit you. A scarlet cherry or 2,
and stick of sun-ripe pineapple, are usual garnish.

Gin sling had its original home at the famous Raffles

1953 David A. Embury: The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. Seite 300. Slings and Toddies.

The dictionaries define both Slings and Toddies as “mixtures of
sweetened spirits and water.” While Slings have always been served
both hot and cold, the Toddy was originally a hot drink only. Today,
however, Toddies, as well as Slings, are served both hot and cold.
Slings are usually made with lemon and either sugar or some sweet

lemon peel but no lemon juice. Also, they usually contain one or
more spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, or nutmeg. These differences,
however, are merely incidental and, when served hot, it is difficult, if
not impossible, to distinguish between a Sling and a Toddy. One
distinction between the cold drinks is that Toddies are usually made
with plain water. Slings with charged water or ginger ale.

Gin slings are very old drinks, usually attributed to far
distant places of warm climate. The origin is not too
certain however and we refer readers to the Section on
Collins. It might well be that the story quoted there
might have some connection with the origin of the Sling
also. However, there is little doubt that the Singapore
Gin Sling had its original home at the famous Raffles
Hotel, Singapore.

1965 Harry Schraemli: Manuel du bar. Seite 329. Les slings.

Les slings sont des boissons analogues aux punches, que l’on peut préparer froids et
chauds. Ils ne sont pas très populaires dans notre pays et l’on peut s’abstenir de les
faire figurer sur la carte du bar. On les sert soit dans des verres ballons soit dans des
verres à grog. Accompagner d’une cuillère à bar.

Recette de base pour slings froids: Faire fondre dans un verre ballon 2-3
cuillères à bar de sucre avec un peu d’eau froide, ajouter ensuite quelques petits dés
de glace brute, 1 cuillère à bar de sirop de grenadine, le jus d’un 1/2 citron et 1 verre
(50 g) du liquide alcoolisé désiré. Bien remuer et finir de remplir avec de l’eau froide.

Recette de base pour slings chauds: Faire fondre dans un verre à grog 3-4
cuillères à bar de sucre avec un peu d’eau chaude, ajouter ensuite le jus d’un 1/2 citron
et 1 verre (50 g) de l’ingrédient alcoolisé prescrit dans la recette et finir de remplir
avec de l’eau bouillante. Râper un soupçon de noix de muscade sur la boisson
terminée.

1965 Harry Schraemli: Manuel du bar. Seite 466. Sling.

About

Hi, I'm Armin and in my spare time I want to promote bar culture as a blogger, freelance journalist and Bildungstrinker (you want to know what the latter is? Then check out "About us"). My focus is on researching the history of mixed drinks. If I have ever left out a source you know of, and you think it should be considered, I look forward to hearing about it from you to learn something new. English is not my first language, but I hope that the translated texts are easy to understand. If there is any incomprehensibility, please let me know so that I can improve it.
