In just a few years Dunes, bang smack in the middle of Playa d’en Bossa, has established itself as top destination for chilling, dancing and eating and cocktails. They serve a legendary Mai Tai, Moscow Mule, Screwdriver, Harvey Wallbanger, Singapore Sling, Bellini, Irish Coffee and many many others… Dunes is the place for a superb cocktail and, unlike the ones featured here, they won’t set you back 20,000 euros! Here is a list of the world’s most expensive cocktails. Watch your wallet!
Diamond Is Forever: $22,600
The Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo serves up vodka with a lime twist… and a one-carat diamond suspended on the rim of the glass.
The Winston: $12,970
Melbourne’s Club 23 uses two shots of 1858 Croizet cognac (about $160,000 a bottle) and a measure of $800 Grand Marnier Quintessence, plus a pour of super-rare Chartreuse.
Ono Champagne Cocktail: $10,000
Served at the Encore Wynn hotel in Las Vegas, this mixes 1981 Heidsieck champagne, a shot of $90,000 Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac… and a gold necklace on the side.
Ritz Paris Sidecar: $1,670
No jewels in this lovely drop, just some super-rare cognac bottled between 1830 and 1870. When it runs out there’ll be no more anywhere!
The Original Mai Tai: $1,300
The Merchant Hotel in Belfast uses Wray and Nephew 17 rum, which, if you can find it, costs as much as $50,000 a bottle at auction. This rum-based cocktail was created in northern California by Trader Vic (or Victor Bergeron as his mum knew him). One night in 1944 he tested his new drink on two friends from Tahiti. After just one sip one of the pals exclaimed “mai tai-roa ae!” which, translated from Tahitian, means “out of this world – the best!” Not a bad call.
