Mandarin Oriental Hotel serves new HK$1,555 Champagne cocktail

A gold flecked Champagne cocktail, spiked with Rémy Martin Louis XIII and featuring Dom Pérignon Brut 2006, is selling at a staggering HK$1,555 a glass (plus 10% service charge) at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s M Bar, making it possibly the most expensive cocktail in Hong Kong.

The Union cocktail at M Bar sells for HK$805, using the ultra premium Havana Union Rum

If you are already whining about Hong Kong’s increasing cocktail prices, now averaging in the HK$150 (US$19) ballpark, the US$200 Champagne cocktail at Mr Bar will certainly put you in place.

Admittedly, this is not just any Champagne cocktail. Created by Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s beverage manager, Agung Prabowo, the cocktail, in the words of the hotel, “highlights the luxuriousness of Dom Pérignon Brut 2006 and Rémy Martin Louis XIII through a mesmerisingly glittery whirlpool of gold”.

It’s so exclusive that the hotel did not even have a photo of it.

“The Champagne cocktail is a tribute to luxury at its finest, exemplifying excellence or shall we say, the ‘crème de la crème,”Jenny An, director of Marketing Communications, told dbHK.

If you are looking for a less pricey option, M Bar has The Union cocktail selling at more “friendly” price of HK$805 (US$103), made from the ultra premium Havana Union Rum, a collaboration between Havana Club’s Maestro Ronero Asbel Morales and Cohiba Cigars Master and Habano sommelier, Fernando Fernandez Milian.

These hefty cocktails don’t come cheap, and we probably wouldn’t see bartenders working at M Bar churning out these tipples every night, if at all.

The world’s most expensive cocktail, however, is served at bar in Maine. The Ruby Rose cocktail decked with a 4-carat ruby fetches US$40,000.
