The Guinness Book of World Records has a new "World's Most Expensive Cocktail." The cocktail cost $12,916, and the anonymous buyer apparently only took a few sips, paid for it and left!
The cocktail has 2 shots of 154-year Croizet cognac as well as Grand Marnier Quintessence, Chartreuse Vieillissement Exceptionnellement
Prolongé and a dash of Angostura Bitters.
A bottle of the cognac has a $157,000 value and it goes for $6,000 per shot. (That makes Louis XIV look cheap!)
