The World's Most Expensive Cocktail

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!)

Here's the article from the Wall Street Journal:  A $13,000 Cocktail Goes to Waste
