A vacation isn’t a vacation without a sampling of amazing drinks. How about a vacation that includes the most expensive cocktails in the world?
The Winston Cocktail, the most expensive drink according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is just one part of the Ultimate Drink Connoisseurs’ Holiday — an around-the-globe vacation consisting of rare spirits, cocktails, beers and wines.
The Winston Cocktail — named after famed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill — is worth an estimated $12,970 per glass. The contents of the cup are even pricier — a shot of cognac from a $166,800 bottle of 1858 Croizet cognac is the main ingredient.
Besides the Winston Cocktail, other drinks on the Ultimate Drink Connoisseurs’ Holiday vacation menu includes sips from a champagne collection worth almost $556,000 and a martini worth an estimated $10,000 is literally served “on the rocks” because a diamond is dropped in among the olives instead of ice.
