New York's Most Expensive Cocktail
At Duvet, the dine-in-bed hotspot in New York City, you can sip a $1,500 cocktail called the Duvet Platinum Passion. The drink is a blend of L'ésprit de Courvoisier (roughly $6,000/bottle), Ruinart champagne and a special syrup that uses passionfruit, forest berries, wildflower honey and brown sugar and was created by Duvet's head mixologist, a gentleman named Brendan. The drink is served in a frosted glass, garnished with an orchid. It was introduced over a year ago, on Valentine's Day in 2005, and only 4 have been sold since then.
