The Merchant Hotel's Pricey Cocktail
Another very expensive cocktail is vying for the title of the world's most expensive drink. CNN reports that the Merchant Hotel in Belfast, ireland says their $1,410 Mai Tai may make it into the record books. The hotel reports that it has already sold two of the drinks since they began to offer it two weeks ago. The drink is made from an extremely rare bottle of Wray and Nephew Rum. Only six of the 17-year-old bottles were created. Unlike other fancy drinks which boast gold bits or diamonds, this one earns its price based strictly on ingredients and the fact that when the bottle is gone the drink will no longer be available.
