Is it worth spending 37.500€ for just one glass? Evidently there are those willing to pay, and these are the three most expensive cocktails in the world
The Drinks Business never ceases to surprise with articles that are really curious. This time it lists the most expensive cocktails in the world. The price depends upon the ingredients, that in certain cases are the crème de le crème, but the bill really is extortionate. This article talks about ten of them but I will mention just three, with the astronomic prices inviting you though to read the original article, which is full of irony.I thought that the first in the list was already very expensive, an original Mai Tai costing 1.120 Euro proposed by Merchant Hotel in Belfast (five star hotel where in May a double room costs about 300€ per night).
Expensive but all in all affordable if we consider that it contains Nephew Rum that costs 29.000 € per bottle and was used in the original recipe in 1944.This s the first mentioned in the list, but let’s see the three that make you faint when you get the bill. The focal point id luxury and exclusivity, the price is worth the stars that shine around the scene.
11.200 € The Winston from Club 23 in Melbourne need two days preparation and gets its name from the famous British statesman. In this case too one of the ingredients costs a lot: 1858 Croizet cognac, which costs 147.500 € per bottle.
17.000 € Diamonds are Forever Martini – The Ritz Carlton Tokyo here the situation is completely different. Let us imagine the rich Japanese guy who has before him the women of his dreams. Here comes the orchestra playing “Diamonds are Forever “ by Shirley Bassey and then the waitresses give her a cocktail glass with inside it also a one carat diamond (practically the size of a large pea). It is improbable that the almond shake eyed beauty will drink it all in on go, due to the large precious stone on the shining on the bottom, don’t you think. I am sure that the lady in question will sip the Martini very very slowly, with Japanese precision and then she will run to the jewellers to get it made into an engagement ring. In the photo the Jacuzzi with a view of the Ritz-Carlton where. In my opinion the cocktail will have most effect.
37.500 € Ruby Rose – The White Barn Inn, Maine, there are two versions: one with a 4 carat ruby inside, a rectangular stone which is really enormous, or without this jewellers touch at 17€. In the glass we will find however Vodka Hanger One, St. Germain Elderflower cordial, freshly squeezed grapefruit and pomegranate juice, and a spoonful of rosewater.
