The cocktail is officially the Guinness World Record holder for the world's priciest drink

The man behind Salvatore's Legacy, the world's most expensive cocktail.

We've had no shortage of expensive cocktails in the past, but the newest, record-breaking cocktail will make you drool. Behold the Salvatore's Legacy cocktail, a £5,500 ($8,850) drink that is making mixology enthusiasts across the globe absinthe-green with envy.

What's in the drink? The Spirits Business reports that it's a mix of 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac (yes, you read that year right), Kummel Liqueur, 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao, and two dashes of Angostura bitters from the 1900s. That is one ancient cocktail — that cognac dates from the year the English first settle Australia; that liqueur was distilled on the eve of the Civil War.

The man behind the drink, Salvatore Calabrese, made the drink during London Cocktail Week, and was officially crowned the winner of the Guinness World Record for the world's most expensive cocktail. The record-holder before that was a £3,766.52 ($6,055) cocktail, held by The Skyview Bar at the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai. We'll add this Salvatore's Legacy to the long list of cocktails that cost as much as our rent.

Most Expensive Drink

Fancy drinking away your inheritance? Well, these decadent tipples are sure to help you with that! Starting from a whopping £2,410 (per glass!), your pockets will be getting lighter by the sip.

An (Almost) Golden Cocktail (£2,410)

We’re starting with what you will soon realise, as a very modest price per glass for this list. Served at Tryst Nightclub in Las Vegas, it comes with a 24-carat gold plated straw, and of course its very own diamond. The great thing about this drink is that the ingredients are rather grand too, namely: Cristal Rose Champagne, Hennessey Ellipse and Grand Marnier 150.

The Winston Cocktail (£10,250)

Needless to say, this price is per the glass. The price tag comes from the rare ingredients used to create this masterpiece, and only one bartender in the world serves it so, you’ll have to pack your bags and head off to Australia in order to try this once-in-a-lifetime drink.

Diamond Is Forever Cocktail (£18,157)

How to top the Winston Cocktail? Add a one carat diamond, of course! This tipple, served at the Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo consists of, among other things, the standard Grey Goose vodka – safe to say this might not be what you expect at this price! However, with the diamond taking up most of the cost, they can’t afford to splash out on the ingredients.

The Ruby Rose Cocktail (£32,056)

Boasting another “high class per the glass” price is The Ruby Rose cocktail. Frustratingly, it’s not the ingredients that makes it so expensive – it’s the garnish. In fact, the ingredients are so affordable, that this drink is served in your average bar for a regular price you could even go out and make this delight for your dinner guests any night of the week. However, the staff at the White Barn Inn drop a ruby (four carats, no less) into this drink and therefore hike the price by a few 10,000 pounds.

1811 Chateau D’Yquem (£78,000)

Moving on now to a truly decadent bottle of wine. The 1811 Chateau D’Yquem, born in the midst of the Napoleonic war, will set you back £78,000. A collector in the United Kingdom, who refurbished the bottle in 1995, sold it to an anonymous buyer in the United States of America. A wine connoisseur was lucky enough to be granted a taste of this miraculous red wine during the same year as the reconditioning of the bottle and professed that it was one of two best Yquems he’d ever tried – quite the claim!

Diamond Jubilee Whiskey Series (£120,000)

Now, when you think of expensive drinks, whiskey might be one of the few that come to mind and, delving in deeper, you might consider Johnnie Walker – a man famous for his whiskey and the creator of the Diamond Jubilee series. For the substantial sum of £120,000 per bottle, this extravagant spirit is bound to give you the royal taste. Celebrating Her Majesty’s 60 th coronation year, Johnnie Walker produced this bottle that is certainly fit for a queen. Along with the carefully crafted contents, the actual bottle is worth a great deal on its own with the diamond-shaped crystal casings and the half carat diamond as a final flourish, this product carries aristocracy in every curve.

The Bombay Sapphire Revelation Collection (£160,282)

Stopping off in the world of gin, nothing will beat The Bombay Sapphire Revelation Collection. With the whole compilation consisting of just five bottles, with each selling for £160,282, this tipple is profoundly elite. Yet, they didn’t stop there. If you were one of the five lucky owners, then you would have acquired a year’s supply of Bombay gin! The designer of the bottle, Karim Rashid, adorned each one with diamonds and jewels, making them worth every penny.

The Macallan 64-Year-Old In Lalique (£291,125)

In 2010, The Macallan 64-Year-Old In Lalique single malt whiskey was auctioned off to the tune of £291,125. Not only are the contents produced and aged to the highest standard, but the bottle is formed from hand cut crystal of the purest form it truly feels like you’re holding power in your palms. Aside from the greatness that this creation exudes, the rather heart-warming fact about this sale, is that all of the proceeds went straight to Charity Water, an organisation that introduces safe drinking water systems into developing countries – someone bought their little piece of luxury, while a whole town obtained their right to clean water – what more could you ask for?

Champagne (£1,602,200)

At this point, we probably have no money left, however, it’s time for us to take a look at champagne. By popular opinion, bubbles are for special occasions only, but this one really takes the cake with its price point of £1,602,200! Unlike your store-bought brand, this grand drink has been aged for 100 years before being poured into the 24-carat gold, platinum cased bottle.

The Eye of the Dragon (£4,406,050)

If you were thinking this is as lavish as it gets, you are sorely mistaken! Let me introduce to you, The Eye of the Dragon. High-flyers can enjoy this vodka for the nail-biting price of £4,406,050! Those fortuitous enough to be able to get their hands on this breath-taking artefact will be blessed with the velvety taste of charcoal-distilled vodka – the smoothest in the world and, for the price, it better be! As with most of these luxurious drinks, the bottle is a marvel in itself, and The Eye of the Dragon is no exception. The dragon coiling around the neck of the bottle is crafted from pure diamonds and, even prior to filling, the bottle weighs around 2.5kg – that’ll be the 15,000 diamonds and 18 carats of solid gold.

Billionaire Vodka (£5,808,193)

Finally, at the very top of the most exuberant drinks out there, we have Billionaire Vodka. Priced at £5,808,193, there is nothing more aptly named than this bottle, featuring just under two thousand diamonds set in gold. However, that is not all the heavily encrusted casing is also dressed in a black, faux fur cover so you can legitimately feel every ounce of nobility from the moment it touches your palm. Undoubtedly, the vodka itself is of the highest quality ­– straight from an authentic Russian recipe and refined by diamonds.

Having had a dip into this elitist lifestyle, it’s time to head back to supermarket brand wine and Absolut vodka. It may not be diamond refined, coal distilled or come encrusted with thousands of pounds worth of jewels and gold, but it is good enough for most of us and doesn’t give you the shivers when you look at all those zeros!

10 Salvatore’s Legacy Cocktail – Price: $8.824

We begin our top 10 list of the highest priced cocktails in the world with Salvatore’s Legacy, priced at $8.824.

London’s famous mixologist Salvatore’s Calabrese offers this exquisite cocktail, which was a former holder of the Guinness World Record.

The 4-ingredient drink is still one of the world’s most expensive cocktails, combining 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, 1770 Kummel liqueur, 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao and 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters from the early 1900s.

The cocktails is also one of the oldest, with a combined age of 730 years.

Salvatore’s Legacy Cocktail via NEXT: #9 Diamond Is Forever

World's Most Expensive Cocktail Costs $8,849

The record for the world's most expensive cocktail may have just been shattered. The Guinness Book of World records is confirming if cocktail maestro Salvatore Calabrese of London's Playboy Club just poured the highest priced drink, which reportedly costs $8,849.

According to Spirits Business, "Salvatore's Legacy" gets its worth from its composition of fine liquors, one of which dates back more than 240 years. The drink is prepared with 40ml of 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, 20ml of 1770 Kummel Liqueur, 20ml of 1860 Dubb Orange Curaco, and early 20th century Angostura Bitters. That not only makes this cocktail the priciest, but also the oldest.

Calabrese made headlines just a few months ago when a 224-year-old bottle of Clos du Griffier Vieux Cognac valued at $77,545 was accidentally destroyed by a customer at London's Playboy Club. The cognac was destined for London Cocktail Week, when Calabrese would have used it in his preparation. The drop meant his record bid was delayed. It will take Guinness three days to determine if "Salvatore's Legacy" will topple the current record holder, the "27,321," which can be ordered at Dubai's The Skyview Bar in Burj Al Arab Hotel and costs 27,321 United Arab Emirates Dirham ($7,438).

The Ruby Rose Cocktail - $40,000

This cocktail is actually affordable enough to make on your own. Bartenders at the White Barn Inn make it using a nice combo of pomegranate juice, Hangar One Vodka, St. Germain, orange juice, and rosewater. That doesn't sound like an expensive drink, does it?

It's really the garnish that makes this cocktail rank among the most expensive drinks in the world. After all, it's really pricey to find a four carat ruby to plunk in an otherwise $18-dollar cocktail.

Classic Drinks Every Bartender Should Know


Credit to Erskine Gwynne, an American writer based in Paris, for the creation of this perfect classic cocktail in the 1920s. With the completion of the redesign of Paris’s urban environment in the late 19th century, there appeared across the city huge, wide-open boulevards. For one of the first times in history, a city was designed to be experienced instead of simply lived in and used. The folks who took to leisurely strolling these new boulevards and open spaces were known as flâneurs or boulevardiers. They embraced a sort of fashionable urban exploration.

The original boulevardier recipe is made with bourbon. But most bartenders today recommend rye because the spice creates a rounder flavor with the sweet vermouth. And rye boulevardiers are fantastic, no doubt. But around here we stick with Erskine’s original recipe.

Boulevardier Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz. rye or bourbon whiskey
  • 1 oz. Campari
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 orange twist

How to Make a Boulevardier

  1. Add whiskey, Campari, and vermouth to shaker with ice, stir
  2. Strain into rocks glass with a few ice cubes in it
  3. Garnish with orange twist

Tips for Making a Boulevardier

  • Serve in a lowball glass for maximum class
  • Like the other famous cocktail with whiskey and vermouth, the Manhattan, a cocktail cherry can be used as a garnish for a sweeter, more playful version

Gin Fizz

The defining feature of a fizz, which is a family of cocktails, is the combination of acidic juice and fizzy water. Created in New Orleans around the 1870s, the drink became popular in the U.S. in the first half of the 20th century. It got so popular, in fact, that bars needed to hire entire teams of bartenders to take shifts making the darn things.

And then around 1950, the domestic U.S. popularity couldn’t contain itself. The drink went international. The rest is history. Folks usually put gin, whiskey, and in fizzes, but gin is the most popular. It’s certainly one of our favorite classic cocktails.

Gin Fizz Ingredients

  • 1.75 oz. gin
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • .75 oz. simple syrup
  • Club soda
  • 1 lemon wedge

How to Make a Gin Fizz

  1. Pour all ingredients in a shaker with ice cubes, shake
  2. Strain into an 8 oz. glass with no ice in it
  3. Top with club soda
  4. Garnish with lemon wedge or twist

Tips for Making a Gin Fizz

  • The more fizz, the better. To maximize the froth, shake once without ice, then add the ice and shake again.
  • Add an egg white into the shaker for the traditional gin fizz
  • To make a Tom Collins, strain into a highball glass full of ice


If you’ve ever heard of Peychaud’s bitters, you’ve heard of the apothecary who is credited with creating the Sazerac. Antoine Amédée Peychaud came to New Orleans from the Caribbean islands in the early 19th century and set up shop selling bitters from a proprietary family recipe. A local barkeep used imported Cognac to make a cocktail that a local apothecary had created. And it grew evermore popular with the years.

Sazerac Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz. Cognac
  • .25 oz. absinthe
  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters (here's a little primer about what bitters are made of and used for)
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 lemon peel

How to Make a Sazerac

  1. Rinse chilled old-fashioned glass with absinthe, set aside
  2. In mixing glass, muddle bitters, sugar cube, and water
  3. Add whiskey or Cognac to mixing glass, stir
  4. Strain into old-fashioned glass, garnish with lemon peel

Tips for Making a Sazerac

  • Add a combination of Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters for a more complex flavor profile
  • Substitute the Cognac with rye whiskey for a slightly spicier, drier cocktail


James Bond, in the stories and movies, has at least twice ordered an Americano cocktail. It’s Campari, sweet vermouth, and sparkling water. And Bond prefers Perrier in his Americanos, thank you very much.

Sounds like a pretty refreshing drink, the Americano. Imagine coming home from a hard day’s work and sipping on one. Pretty good. Now imagine coming home from a really hard day’s work and sipping on one. Could probably be a little stronger.

That’s what Pascal-Olivier de Negroni thought when he was enjoying his favorite cocktail after a hard day’s work as a general in the French military. When you spend your days worrying about all sorts of men-at-arms, armored cavalry, and the looming Prussian threat, you need a little something more than Campari to take the edge of. He asked a bartender to throw a shot of gin in his Americano, and the Negroni was born.

Negroni Ingredients

How to Make a Negroni

  1. Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice cubes, stir
  2. Strain into rocks glass full of ice
  3. Garnish with orange peel

Tips for Making a Negroni

  • Don’t rub the orange peel on the glass rim
  • Use a full-bodied, bold gin to compete with the very flavorful Campari for a balanced flavor


Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Frisian island of Fohr was known for its whaling community. It’s not far from mainland Germany, but has access to the whaling bounty of the North Sea. The pursuit of whales took these folks all the way to America—New England to be precise. That's where much of the whaling industry had consolidated.

At the tail end of the whaling era, mixing rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, and bitters became popular in New York City. And it spread to the rest of the region—Hartford, Connecticut, specifically. The whalers from Fohr picked up the habit there. Heading back to their homeland because work dried up, they brought the recipe and their appetite for it with them.

To this day, the little island of less than 9,000 people is in love with it. They drink it for lunch, for dinner, as a nightcap, for special occasions. Pictures of it adorn restaurants and menus. Bartenders specialize in it. And people seek it out constantly.

Manhattan Ingredients

  • 2 oz. rye, bourbon, or Canadian whiskey
  • .75 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • 1 cherry

How to Make a Manhattan

  1. Pour whiskey, vermouth, and bitters into a shaker with ice cubes, stir
  2. Strain into chilled glass
  3. Garnish with cherry

Tips for Making a Manhattan

  • Shake with cracked ice to get a better mix crack the ice cube in the palm of your hand with the back of a bar spoon
  • A maraschino cherry is best, though a lemon twist can be used instead of the cherry for a dressed-down version


Mojitos may seem like a newer, trendy drink, but their history reaches back many centuries. Native Cubans used mint leaves, sugar cane juice, and lime for medicine. The European presence in the Caribbean around that time encountered it and it soon evolved into a recreational drink with the addition of rum. The combination of cool mint leaves in mojitos complements the punch of citrus exquisitely. Making a mojito isn’t difficult, but making an excellent one is, so practice! There are worse fates in the world than disposing of practice mojitos.

Mojito Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz. rum
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 6 mint leaves
  • Club soda

How to Make a Mojito

  1. Muddle 4 mint leaves with sugar and lime juice
  2. Fill glass half full with crushed ice, add rum, and stir
  3. Top off with club soda
  4. Garnish with leftover 2 mint leaves and optional lime wheel or wedge

Tips for Making a Mojito

  • Slap the mint leaves with your hands before putting them in the glass to muddle it releases the mint leaves’ essential oil
  • Stir gently to avoid mint leaves ripping
  • Use dark rum to create a deeper flavor profile

Lemon Drop Martini

The Spruce Eats / Claire Cohen

Vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup combine for an elegant and low-cost drink. The zing of a freshly-made lemon drop martini is a pure pleasure. The syrup is nothing more than sugar and water, so it costs just pennies to make. Use the lilac lemon drop martini recipe as inspiration for infusing it with flavor and enjoy a whole new world of vodka martinis that taste just as good as those $12 cocktails at the bar.

The World's Most Expensive Cocktail Is Now $12,916

An Australian bartender set a new Guinness World Record for the most expensive cocktail this week with a drink that sold for 12,500 Australian dollars ($12,916). The Age reports that Club 23 bartender Joel Heffernan is responsible for this latest entry into the realm of outrageously expensive drinks. The price of the cocktail — named Winston for Winston Churchill — is so astronomical thanks to its two nips of 1858 Croizet cognac: A bottle of the cognac has a $157,000 value and it goes for $6,000 per shot. There's also some Grand Marnier Quintessence, Chartreuse Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolonge, a dash of Angostura Bitters and other fancy touches such as chocolate nutmeg dust.

The Wall Street Journal notes that the cocktail's buyer only took a couple sips and left at an event Thursday night. Heffernan, who strips the world record from London's Salvatore Calabrese of the $8,835 cocktail, explains in the following video how he made the cocktail. He also tries to justify the price by citing the cost of caring for the cognac and how it takes him two days' notice to make the Winston.

The 12 Best Rum Cocktails For When You Want to Get Away

A terrace overlooking a sunset. A white-sand beach. A bar in Havana. Pour up one of these, and you'll feel like you're there.

Rum runs the cocktail gamut. You can be meditative as you make a Mojito, treating each ingredient with the utmost care so that the mint is muddled just so, the lime squeezed just right, the rum-to-club soda ration is just perfect. You can also chuck a bunch of ingredients in a blender with some ice, dump it out in a cup, and garnish it with whatever's in your line of sight&mdasha pineapple frond, a dash of nutmeg, a bundle of dry twigs. Like a Painkiller. You can make a rum drink that lights a fire in your belly (Hot Buttered Rum, for example) or a rum drink that you quite literally light on fire (a Zombie, which is also what you will become after ingesting one).

As spring transitions to a hot-as-ever summer, rum takes its rightful place in the seasonal cocktail lineup, up there with tequila and bitter Italian aperitifs.

It's like taking tea to quiet the stomach and soothe the soul. Only, of course, rum makes it better.

&bull 1 tsp. papaya juice
&bull 1 tsp. superfine sugar

Stir together all the ingredients except the 151. Pour the mixture into a 14-ounce glass three-fourths full of cracked ice. Float the 151 as a lid by pouring it into a spoon and gently dipping it under the surface of the drink if the spirit moves you, take a match to it. Garnish with mint (either straight or dipped in lime juice and then superfine sugar) and/or fruit.

Mezcal: Rarely

Mezcal is a bestiary, and it&rsquos difficult to predict how it will behave when mixed. Different mezcals will present all kinds of crazy flavors based on the agave used, how it&rsquos made, what kind of wood smokes it, etc. Like rum, the cocktail was likely designed with a particular mezcal in mind, and even a bottling you like more on its own might clash with what the cocktail is trying to do, so personally I wouldn&rsquot mess with it.
