Top 10 most expensive cocktails

7. Salvatore’s Legacy – The Playboy Club in London

worlds most expensive cocktail

Price: $6,700

In a Guinness World record attempt in October 2012, this cocktail was created by master bartender Salvatore Calabrese at The Playboy Club in London. Its astronomical price comes from the decadent ingredients used – a 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, a 1770 Kummel liquer, an 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao and a tiny bottle of 19th century Angostura bitters.

This is also believed to be the oldest cocktail in the world, with the ingredients having a combined age of 730 years. During an attempt on the same record earlier in the year, a ‘priceless’ bottle (read: $60,500) of the same Clos de Griffier Vieux was dropped, and smashed.

The ‘museum cabinet’ at the bar contains more than $1.2million worth of vintage cognacs.
