1858 CROIZET COGNAC COST $12,916, The world’s most expensive cocktail. The Guinness World of Records has seen a new benchmark for the most expensive cocktail in the world which has been set by a bartender from Australia with a cocktail drink that cost $12,916! Joel Heffernan is the 23 year-old bartender who has made a foray into the field of costly alcoholic beverages by making the Winston (name of the cocktail drink) at Club 23 in Melbourne (Australia) on the 7th of February this year (2013).

The name of the cocktail is Winston (apparently after Sir Winston Churchill) and the astronomical cost of this luxurious drink is owing to the 1858 Croizet Cognac that goes into the drink. The actual value of a bottle of this cognac is a whopping $157,000 and one shot would cost you $6,000. Along with the cognac there are other fine ingredients such as a dash of Angostura Bitters, Chartreuse Vieillissement Exceptionanellement Prolonge, Grand Marnier Quintessence and other fancy bits here and there such as the dust of chocolate nutmeg.
