Serendipity 3’s LUXE Milkshake is currently the priciest on the planet, according to Guinness World Records. Served in a glass adorned with over 3,000 Swarovski crystals and topped with edible 23-karat gold, this $100 dessert is extravagant from top to bottom.
To make the LUXE come to life, Serendipity 3 Creative Chef Joe Calderone tracked down an impressive lineup of premium ingredients. It starts with a base of Channel Island Jersey milk, prized for its high butterfat content that adds a rich consistency to the shake. There’s also Devonshire luxury clotted cream, Tahitian vanilla ice cream, and fresh Madagascar vanilla beans blended inside.
The most intriguing of the ingredients, though, has to be the caramel sauce. It’s made with fresh donkey milk and infused with Venezuelan cocoa to add complex notes to the frozen treat.
Those interested in learning more about the LUXE can watch the video below to see the full construction of this bourgeois blended beverage.
While this may seem like it was just created for the record, Serendipity does have it on sale starting today. It’ll set you back $100, but hey, it may well be worth the price to say that you’ve literally sipped on liquid gold.
