Premium Gift of the day: the most expensive cocktail in the world
Every day until the Sparkling holidays, we are inspiring you with an idea for exclusive and premium Christmas gifts. Today we suggest you invite your special someone for a special drink.
The most expensive cocktail in the world is called Salvatore's Legacy and it is available at the highly exclusive Playboy club in London.
You can taste the premium drink, mixed by its creator and one of the world's leading bartenders - Salvatore Calabrese "The Maestro". The "once in a lifetime" pleasure will cost you 5 500 £ for 730 years of history in a cocktail glass:
- 40ml 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac
- 20ml 1770 Kummel Liqueur
- 20ml circa 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao
- two dashes of circa 1900s Angostura Bitters.
Salvatore's Legacy is nearly 2 000 £ more expensive than the previous record holder, served at the Skyview Bar of Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai.
The Maestro has become an expert on cognacs, collecting and serving some of the world's oldest and rarest vintages. His personal collection is worth more than £1m and it is displayed in his bar at Playboy Club London.
