You may remember our rundown of “6 of the Most Expensive AF Meals in the World.” In that one, you learned fat-walleted foodies were down for dishing out $1,000 for a bagel and $14,000 for a meat pie. You know, real casual like.

Today, we’ve got the inevitable follow-up for all you bar-hopping nightlife fiends out there (we reckon most of you): The 6 Most Expensive AF Cocktails in the World. These liquor-loaded concoctions are going to run you a bit more than the PBRs and LITs most of you are accustomed to.

Just how much more? Prepare to get mind-f***ed:

1. Sapphire Martini ($3,000) | Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket, CT

This isn’t your garden-variety martini. What separates it from the pack? While the ingredients remain primarily the same, the twist is this one’s served with a side of diamond and sapphire earrings. Because why not?


2. Ono Champagne Cocktail ($10,000) | Encore Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas

Got $10,000 to spare? Why do something smart like invest it when you can blow it all on one single stinkin’ drink?

That’s right. The One Champagne Cocktail delivers the following for a cool 10 grand: a mix of 
Rémy Martin Louis XVIII Black Pearl, 1981 Charles Heidsieck champagne, rose nectar, apricot juice, and orange juice. Oh, and a set of cuff links with a gold, pearl, and diamond necklace. (Apparently, accompanying jewelry is a big thing with these cocktails.) Bonus: It’s brought to your table by 20 servers wielding sparklers, as if they’re celebrating the fact you’re now dead-ass broke.


3. Martini on the Rock ($10,000) | The Blue Bar, New York, NY

This one starts at $10,000 but can go higher—it all depends on the diamond you choose to plunk into the glass during your proposal.

Yup—you’re getting married (surprise)! After giving a 72-hour notice that you want to order the Martini on the Rock for the significant other that sure as hell better not turn you down, you’ll be given a private consultation with a jeweler to pick out your diamond of choice. You’ll also be afforded the opportunity to have your favorite song playing as the drink is presented to bae, meaning you’ll be able to relive the time you two first hooked up at that Nickelback concert. Beautiful.


4."The World's Most Expensive Cocktail" ($10,006) | Gigi’s, London, England

While not technically the world’s most expensive cocktail, it’s up there. Created for supermodel Grace Jones, it’s a fancy-pants combo of 1888 Samalens Vieille Relique Vintage Bas Armagnac, 1990 Cristal, and decorative gold leaf. Decadent!


5. Winston ($12,040) | Club 23, Melbourne, Australia

Named after “Winston” from New Girl, Club 23’s creation takes two days to whip up. It’s comprised of two shots of $6,000 USD 1858 Croizet Cognac as well as a bit of Chartreuse V.E.P and Grand Marnier Quintessence. 

Oh, and we totally just lied to you. The Winston is named after Winston Churchill and has nothing to do with New Girl. We don’t even know why we made that up. We might have a problem.


6. The Diamond is Forever Martini ($18,000) | Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo, Japan

This one’s super straightforward—Grey Goose vodka and a lime twist. You’d think the vodka would be a little fancier. Look, don’t get us wrong—Grey Goose is pretty dope if you’re, like, mixing drinks in a college dorm room while blasting Taylor Swift. But for $18,000 at Tokyo’s tallest hotel?

Then again, there is this little caveat: the drink comes with a 1-karat diamond. So, if you’re looking for some new bling and feel like getting a little tipsy to boot, this is clearly the best use of that 18 grand burning a hole in your pocket.
