In Dubais most famous hotel the Burj Al Arab they serve the 27,321. This number is the name as well as the price (in Dirham) of the most expensive cocktail in the world. This means one glass will cost you 4,690 Euro. The price is calculated from the cost of the exquisit ingredients from which this beverage is made. Like the 55 year-old wiskey from a limited lalique edition which is mixed with dried fruit bitter - which incidentally is produced by a German company - and sugar made from passion fruit which is served in a Baccarat-crystall glass with a gold brim. And of course the ice-cubes are made from a sublime Scottish table water. And you can take the glass home as a little souvenir. But if you want to try this luxury cocktail you'd better hurry, because due to it's rare ingredients they can only make 10 of it's kind - and two have already been sold.
