So you’re having a cocktail party and want to impress your guests with expensive and unique drinks, but can you top these? The following are some of the most expensive drinks in the world.
The Winston, by Club 23, in Melbourne, Australia made the Guinness World Record for the most expensive cocktail in 2013, knocking London's 'Salvatore's Legacy' lower in this rank. However, it is now outshined by many other drinks.
Ruby Rose Cocktail, $40,000
The White Barn Inn, Kennebunk, Maine
This cocktail is a mixture of:
Hanger One Vodka,
Fresh grapefruit juice
Pomegranate and a spoonful of rosewater.
Usually it would only cost $18, but when topped with a 4-carat ruby, things get a bit pricier.
The Diamond Is Forever Martini, $18,000
The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo
The Ritz is known for everything luxury. This cocktail is the perfect one for a guy who wants to pop the question in true luxurious style. Garnished with a one-carat diamond, this drink is also served with a live band who plays the James Bond movie “Diamonds Are Forever” theme song (which the drink is named after).
Salvatore’s Legacy, $8,316
Salvatore at Playboy, London
“Legendary London mixologist” Salvatore Calabrese is offering a drink in his name at his newest bar Salvatore at Playboy. The drink was a former winner of a Guinness World Record title and is reportedly the oldest cocktail in the world, combining liquors from the 1700-1800s.
