WORLD´S MOST EXPENSIVE COCKTAIL
With a price tag of almost $14,500, the Gigi’s cocktail was
created for actress Grace Jones at the opening of Gigi’s
restaurant in London. The cocktail was made from a luxurious
mix of 1990 Vintage Cristal and an extremely rare 1888
Samalens Vieille Relique Vintage Bas Armagnac brandy, topped
with Angostura Bitters and “lashings” of gold leaf.
SHARON STONE´S KISS
