The World's Most Expensive Cocktail

Posted by Kero at Sunday, January 17, 2010
The world's only 7-star hotel also features the most expensive cocktail in the world.

Presenting the drink worth 27, 321 AED or $7,438.13. It is produced exclusively for the Burj Al Arab. In fact, the price tag was established because the number 27 marks the number of floors in Dubai’s lavish hotel, and 321 is the building’s height in meters.

It is made with Macallan 55 years old single malt. The cocktail is served in a baccarat 18 karat gold glass. The glass, in its tailored leather box and a personal numbered certificate is issued to the limited drink for every ten of the buyer. So far, 10 cocktails were sold in 2008.

One cocktail is currently on display at the Skyview Bar, adjacent to Al Muntaha Restaurant on the 27th floor of the hotel. The drink is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records 2009.

Here is my son wanting to get closer to the glass cabinet. Any brown liquid on drinking glass and he thinks it's an apple juice :)

Some people are just so lucky, the only problem they have is how or where to spend their money, and drink like this is usually an answer to their prayer. :)

I wonder what's in it that makes it the most expensive one in the entire universe hehehe.

I am a bit late but I hope you can still take a peek on my PBW entry

I'd love to visit the Burj Al Arab. So much hype. I'd be scared even to hold the cocktail glass.. I hope I meet someone someday to tell me how it tastes. Thanks for sharing this! :)
