World's Most Expensive Cocktails

The world's most expensive cocktails include Churchill Downs' $1000 mint julep for a select few at the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

Wait a minute. This isn't an old joke. In fact, you can pay a lot more than $1000 for a cocktail in some bars and restaurants, and maybe the joke might be on you.

Kentucky Derby's special mint julep

At the 2020 Kentucky Derby, a special $1000 mint julep was served to a select few. The ingredients were tradition, but top-of-the line: Woodford Reserve Bourbon, mint leaves imported from Ireland, sugar imported from Australia, and ice imported from the Bavarian Alps mixed and served in gold-plated cups with silver straws.

Expensive cocktails at the Las Vegas MGM Grand

At the Seablue restaurant and lounge in the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas you can order the Duvet Passion for $1500. The ingredients: a mix of rare aged cognacs and a mix of rare vintage champagnes garnished with a vanilla orchid petal. This drink was introduced on Valentine's Day in 2005.

The Teatro Euro Bar, also in Vegas's MGM Grand, offers their $2200 High Limit Kir Royale. This is a gambling winner's special.

Paris's Hotel Ritz Sidecar

The Bar Hemingway in Paris's venerated Hotel Ritz offers their famous Ritz Sidecar, once deemed by The Guinness Book of World Records as "The Most Expensive Cocktail in the World." The reason for this designation is the cocktail's main ingredient, a shot from one of the few remaining bottles of super-rare 1865 Ritz Reserve cognac left on the planet. This is a true taste of history.

Trader Vic's original Mai Tai

"Mai Tais in Ireland?" you might ask incredulously.

And the answer is "yes." And some say that the $1400 Mai Tais served at Belfast's The Merchant Hotel are the world's best. The reason for this claim: the key ingredient for their Mai Tais are the rum shots from one of six known surviving 17-year-old bottles of Wray amp; Nephew, the rum that the cocktail's creator "Trader Vic" Bergeron himself used throughout the years for his Mai Tais.

The Sapphire Martini

The Sapphire Martini at Mezz, a lounge in Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino, will set you back $3000. It's a classic martini with the added "garnish" of a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings.

The Algonquin Hotel's Martini-on-the-Rocks

The Blue Bar in Manhattan's Algonquin Hotel of twenties literati "Roundtable" fame offers their Martini-on-the-Rocks at a whopping $10,000. This is a martini that must be ordered three days in advance because this drink's "garnish" is a pre-selected 1.52-carat diamond. The Algonquin's Martini-on-the-Rocks is the ultimate marriage proposal special.

Criticism

Some critics, particularly master bartenders, scorn this now popular practice of adding expensive jewelry and other non-potable ingredients to a cocktail as a sacrilege to the art form of cocktail preparation.
