How much would one spend for a cocktail? The experts of krasiagr.com answer.
In bars around the world, the most expensive cocktails cost up to $ 25. Can anyone spend more? We assure you that it can, as there are cocktails that cost up to four or even five digits. Like the following.
Kentucky Derby Mint Julep – $ 1,000
More than 120,000 Mint Juleps are served at Kentucky Derby Games each year during the events. To understand the size, we are talking about more than 1,000 kilos of mint! However, the real gem of the match is very expensive, even for many players of the match – it is the Kentucky Derby Mint Julep cocktail. What makes this drink stand out from the rest? The biggest difference is the silver Tiffany & Co glass in which it is served. The cocktail is made with Woodford Reserve bourbon, Moroccan mint, sugar from the South Pacific and ice from the Arctic Circle. Definitely not one of the most common cocktails.
Genuine Mai Tai – $ 1,270
We have all drunk a Mai Tai in a bar, but not many can claim to have drunk the authentic Mai Tai. Belfast Merchant Hotel Mai Tai is the original recipe. The drink originated in 1944 from Trader Vic’s and the Merchant Hotel is the only place on the planet that uses the same original rum used in 1944. Mai Tai, called in Polynesian “maitai” translates to “good” in English. There is certainly no My Tai on the planet as good as this original creation at the Merchant Hotel.
Platinum Passion – $ 1,500
Platinum Passion is one of the most expensive drinks in New York and definitely the diamond among many pricy and wonderful cocktails. This drink was presented on Valentine’s Day in 2005, at Duvet, a themed bar, one of the most luxurious places in the world. So what is Platinum Passion? Contains Ruinart Champagne, passion fruit, honey, brown sugar and L’esprit de Courvoisier, which sells for about $ 6,000 a bottle.
Ritz-Paris Sidecar – $ 1,670
The Sidecar cocktail came from the Hotel Ritz-Paris and it is no surprise that this hotel sells the most expensive Sidecar and one of the ten most expensive drinks in the world. This excellent cocktail is made with cognac bottled between 1830 and 1870, making it one of the oldest alcohols on the planet.
Sapphire Martini – $ 3,000
The world’s elite can bet their money and drink this martini at the same time, at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. Initially, the price was $ 24, but as this drink gained worldwide fame, the management apparently decided to increase the price to $ 3,000. Of course, it is not just fame that has increased the cost of this drink by thousands of dollars. The Sapphire Martini lives up to its name because it is served with a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings on the side.
Diamond Cocktail – $ 4,350
The Diamond Cocktail at the Sheraton Park Hotel in London lives up to its name: it is served with a real diamond in the drink. The recipe consists of a mixture of different cognacs that cost about $ 1,000 per bottle. Whoever buys this drink can choose the diamond inside – this can vary the price of the cocktail depending on the type of stone that comes in. In addition to diamonds, a buyer can even choose a ruby.
Martini on the Rock – $ 10,000
We have all drank an martini with ice (on the rocks), but has anyone drank a martini with real rock inside? The Algonquin Hotel in New York has the most expensive cocktail in all of New York, as it contains a diamond. In fact, this diamond cocktail is so special that it requires 3 days pre-booking and an appointment with a jewelry maker. Depending on the diamond you choose, the drink could cost up to $ 15,000! Considering the effort made to create it, it is clear that it is only for the most special occasions: very expensive engagements and anniversaries.
Ono Champagne Cocktail – $ 10,000
What makes a cocktail very expensive is the fact that it contains a high quality alcoholic beverage. Another thing is the fact that they serve it in a glass with jewelry – with a gold necklace on the side. The Encore Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas does just that, using 18-carat gold. However, he does not miss the champagne either. This drink, in addition to the rare Charles Heidsieck champagne of 1981 and $ 90,000 brandy – (Louis XIII Black Pearl) contains fresh orange juice, apricot juice and rose nectar. Complete with two perfect ice cubes.
Diamond Is Forever – $ 22,600
At the top of the list is the most expensive cocktail in the world: Diamond Is Forever from the Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo. Contains Gray Goose vodka, which does not seem to be the most expensive vodka one would expect at this price. On the other hand, it also contains a 28 carat diamond, which costs about $ 16,000! Only two have been sold to date, with the price barring further sales. However, lime and diamond vodka remains available at Tokyo’s tallest hotel for those who want and can – just be careful not to swallow the diamond!
