World's most expensive cocktail goes on sale

Diners with more money than sense can sample the delicacy for the princely sum of £9,000 per glass.
The ridiculously extravagant drink was concocted in honor of actress Grace Jones and contains a combination of 1990 Vintage Cristal champagne and an ultra-rare Armagnac brandy which is more than 125 years old.

The 'liquid gold' cocktail was presented at the star-studded opening event of Gigi's restaurant in Mayfair on Thursday which was attended by Jones alongside her friend Boy George.

Restaurant manager Cesare Papagna stated that he wanted to give the actress something "truly special" in honor of the occasion. The cocktail has even broken the record for the world's most expensive drink, beating the previous record holder, the 'Winston', which cost £8,167.

I don't suppose they've heard of a pie and a pint.

Those people are doing nothing but gloating on their wealth. It's an ego-trip. That cocktail probably tastes like crap... but that's not the issue... the issue is that they can afford it whilst other's can not. Blah, and BLAH. I'll stick with my own much lower-cost tasty cocktail or beer. I have no desire to(or attempt to) impress anyone with anything. EDIT: I guess that leaves me out of their crowd, but I seriously don't care.

There are no cocktails with a value of £8,888. But there are idiots who pay £8,888 for a cocktail.

it would be ok i think if the money whould go to charity. but even if that was the case it's way too pricey. i'm perfectly happy with my 1.50 euro beer.

the funny thing is it takes more than one mixed drink to get drunk so imagine how many you have to drink just to get drunk anything more than two and you're already spending a small fortune I think you'd already have to be drunk or high to pay that much for a drink even if you have the money.

Crass and repulsive. A bit like the people drinking them.

These are the same people who pay their employee's minimum wage. Scream blue murder if a government increases minimum wage by 10c. Yet think nothing about blowing 9k. Go world
