On first going out for drinks in Los Angeles or New York, the cocktails look expensive: $11, $16, even $25 for your fanciest. But if you are not satisfied with a double delight, is it feasible to spend more? I guarantee you it is: more, actually, with cocktails at the four or even five digits.
Here are the 10 Most Expensive Cocktails in the World.
10. Original Mai Tai – The Merchant Hotel in Belfast
For $1036 it is possible to enjoy possibly the most expensive beverage on all of the Emerald Isle. The Merchant Hotel in Belfast functions up its infamous cocktail, made with the very same ingredients as the Mai Tai, using the first recipe as made by Trader Vic at 1944. The drink is made with just two ounces of 17-year-old J.
Wray & Nephew Rum — only 24 bottles of that rum exist — shaved ice, juice of fresh lime, half an ounce of Holland DeKuyper orange curaçao and French Garnier orgeat syrup, and finished using a quarter-ounce of Trader Vic’s Rock Candy Syrup plus a sprig of fresh mint.
