Most Expensive Cocktail "The Fizz Deluxe"
Where it Was Found
The "Fizz Deluxe" was possibly one of the most expensive cocktails that has ever been on the market sitting at a clean $2,500 per glass. This luxurious mixture came from a bar located in the heart of Las Vegas, hence the bars name “Fizz Las Vegas.” Fizz, now closed, was a newer champagne bar owned by Steven Kennedy and Michael Greco, who partnered with Sir Elton John's husband David Furnish while opening the place. At the front of this bar you can get your typical 18 dollar mixed drinks, but if you were lucky enough to make it into the back lounge where all the celebrities hung out, you could have grabbed yourself a couple Fizz Deluxe’s and drink like royalty.
Why spend the money?
What exactly was so special about the Fizz Deluxe that made it worth $2,500 you ask? Let me break it down for you. Each mixed drink contained Dom Perignon, Grand Marnier Quintessence, Richard Hennessy, and was topped with 24 carat gold flakes. If you didn’t already know, some of these bottles I listed above are at least 100 years old. Just take a look at these luxurious bottles and learn about the value of each and maybe you will understand why this cocktail is worth $2,500.
