Here are the World's Most Expensive Cocktails

Salvatore’s Legacy, Salvatore at Playboy


Want a taste of history? You might get that at London’s Salvatore at Playboy, courtesy of master mixologist Salvatore Calabrese. Quite possibly the world’s oldest cocktail, Salvatore’s legacy is a prolific concoction with an alleged “punch”, featuring spirits dating as far back as the 18th century, including the 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac and the 1770 kümmel liqueur, with the circa-1860 Dubb Orange Curaçao. Finally, two dashes of Angostura Bitters from the early 20th century conclude this ‘ancient’ cocktail.
Price: $8,300

The Birth of an Icon, Skyview Bar


As the Middle East’s most expensive city, one should not have a problem finding luxury cocktails with a fitting atmosphere. A lavish sail-shaped building off an artificial island called the Burj Al Arab hotel offers some exorbitantly priced drinks at its famous Skyview Bar – with The Birth of an Icon priced at a staggering US$4000. The menu describes this royal drink as something splendidly assembled with the fundamentals of Daiquiri and a finishing touch of signature gold dust.

Billionaire's Margarita, The London Bar


Tequila lovers, head on to New York City’s The Londer Bar. Be prepared to fork out about $1,200, though, but with a lavish concoction of Rémy Martin Louis XIII “Very Old” Cognac, the limited edition Patrón en Lalique Serie 1, a dash of Cara Cara bitters and some lime and Meyer lemon juice, we think the price tag is quite a steal.

Price: US$1,200

The Ono, XS Nightclub


A wild night in Vegas is not complete without a lavish splurge on The Ono at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub – at only US$10,000, indulge in this excellent cocktail made with the highly prized concoction of Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl and Charles Heidsieck Champagne. Perfect for one who enjoys grand gestures, for the cocktail is served with 20 servers, spectacular sparklers and boisterous fanfare. You will also get a set of sleek cufflinks, a necklace set in gold, diamond and pearl.
