This is What a $9000 Cocktail Looks Like

Surprisingly, the eponymous Salvatore’s Legacy does not come with your own private jet. Mixologist Salvatore Calabrese kinda dropped the ball on that one. But this $8850 product London’s Cocktail Week does have just about everything else:

  • 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac (just a few decades shy of its tricentennial!)
  • Kummel Liqueur
  • 1860 Dubb Orange Curacao (other things happening in 1860? Lincoln was running for president. Abraham Lincoln. The 16th president. Of the United States.)
  • Two dashs of Angosture bitters, circa 1900

Throw in a kitchen sink from the stone age, and you’re good to go. Collectively, this Guinness world record holder is over 500 years old, and beat out the former record (held by The Skyview Bar at the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai) by well over $2000. Also, there’s apparently a whole market for wring-out-your-wallet drinks.

Do they have one of those for poor college grads? Oh. Natty Light? Thanks.

Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
