World’s Most Expensive Drink is Flawless

•December 12, 2007 • Leave a Comment

The “Flawless” cocktail contains “a large measure of Louis XII cognac, half a bottle of Cristal Rose champagne, some brown sugar, angostura bitters and a few flakes of 24-carat edible gold leaf” —- and an 11 carat diamond at the bottom of the glass– so don’t guzzle this baby.

It debuted at a hip London nighclub called Movida, which is a hot spot for athletes, celebrities and the ultra-rich. Just in time for Kelly Rowlands Christmas Party there on the 14th. Admission to Movida is by membership or guest invite only.

Wonder what happens to the waitress if she spills one?

Cost: £35,000 ($71,600.00 US approx.) Drink (and spend) wisely

For the kid who has everything– Kickbars are diamond encrusted clip-ons for shoe and sneaker laces. Choose the KickBar with 54 round full cut diamonds (2 carats) or the Custom Kickbars made with 30 Princess cut diamonds (6 carats, dude).  Diamonds too gaudy?  Go with the emeralds or sapphires.

KickBars make you look great sliding into second base, going up for that slam dunk or jumping link fences. Icy cool.

Cost: $7500 for the diamond KickBars, market price for the Customs.

Most Expensive US Motorcycle: Ecosse Heretic Titanium

As the name implies, the Heretic defies conventional motorcycles, not only in design but in price. It is the most expensive US motorcycle you can buy. A hand-built motor made from a solid block of aluminium, titanium chassis, and aerospace components just begin to tell the story of this limited edition sport bike built for the record books by Ecosse Moto Works. No two Heretics are alike.

Order yours now. Only 100 plan to be built. You can even put a customized message on the handlebar clamp– we suggest “Because I can afford it”. You better have a good chain to lock this baby up.

Cost: $273,000 (Titanium model, fully loaded). Truly hell on your wallet.

H/T: Born Rich.

The Continuum Caliburn is the most expensive turnable you can buy.  And reputably the finest turntable in the world.  It was the Stereophile 2006 Product of the Year.  The Continuum is made by Australia’s Continuum Audio Labs.

With my music record collection, the hisses and crackles should be as smooth as silk.

Cost: Up to $112,000
