The Cocktail That Costs More Than A Racehorse

Remember when you could buy the world’s most expensive drink for only $9,000?. Yeah, neither do we, because San Manuel Casino in Highland, California is now selling a new cocktail for $10,000 and we can’t remember anything once that much money is involved.

The globe’s most overpriced alcoholic beverage, titled ‘Rare and Fine’ contains a measured blend of A.H. Hirsch 16-year-old bourbon and 1996 Lafite-Rothschild, with a topper of Le Printemps cognac from Hardy to make everything taste extra fancy.

Once assembled, it arrives at the bar in a tumbler composed of Lalique crystal. Holding the garnishes (orange zest and a maraschino cherry) in place is a 14-karat gold pick studded with diamonds. The hardware is yours to keep.

We won’t lie, the sheer number of unnecessary syllables in the ingredient list almost had us sold on the price tag, but then remembered that you could also buy a racehorse from a wine farm, a house, or an education with that amount of money.
