World’s Most Expensive Champagne Cocktail
21st December 2015
Officially the world’s most expensive cocktail, this extravagant tipple is called The Gigi and was originally created for the singer, Grace Jones.
The Gigi has the appearance of a traditional Champagne Cocktail which usually includes bubbly laced with cognac and bitters.
But unlike them it is made with a bottle of 1990 Vintage Cristal and a bottle of 1888 Samalens Vieille Relique Vintage Bas Armagnac, an ultra-rare Armagnac that pre-dates the Boer War and a gold leaf garnish, the finished drink will set you back £8,888.
Gigi’s is a gourmet brasserie in Mayfair, London.
