Shaken and Stirred

We do occasionally open somewhat pointless e-mails by shitehawk companies (Pay Day Loans, in this instance), especially when it arrives with the subject header of” “$22,600 Cocktail In Tokyo Bar Ranked Most Expensive In The World”.

Our interest was piqued when right there at number 6 is an Original Mai Tai, in the Merchant in Belfast, costing $1270.

We decided to investigate this and Olivia, on behalf of the Merchant, says, “We don’t serve this cocktail anymore, unfortunately. It was a limited edition cocktail made with an extremely rare bottle of 17-year-old Wray and Nephew Rum. Our current most expensive cocktail is a Sazerac made with a vintage bourbon and vintage cognac and is priced at £250.00.”

We did not have the time, or inclination, to find out whether a $22,600 cocktail  called ‘Diamonds Are Forever’, which is said to be served at Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo, exists or not.
