Most Expensive Margarita Ever Unveiled

22 February, 2016

The London Bar, which is set within luxury hotel The London NYC, has debuted its signature drink, the "Billionaire Margarita" in celebration of National Margarita Day. According to the hotel, the "Billionaire Margarita" features premium ingredients including Patrón en Lalique Serie 1 and Louis XIII. Oh, and it comes with a price tag of $1,200. The London Bar hopes to break records and have fun doing it with this extravagant offering.

Jayson Goldstein, The London NYC’s director of Food & Beverage, is the mastermind behind the "Billionaire Margarita." He revealed that the lavish drink will only be offered as the Patrón en Lalique Serie 1 is available. “With only 500 bottles of the spirit produced, once it’s gone – it’s gone,” Goldstein said. The London is only one of two locations in New York City that have this coveted tequila.

Goldstein also uses a half ounce of Louis XIII Cognac in his recipe, which typically runs about $375 dollars a shot. “We also just took it a step further and used exotic fruits like Meyer lemon, Key limes, and organic blue agave,” he says.

While the bar has yet to sell one, we still love the "crazy" in the decision to celebrate #NationalMargaritaDay, so for that Cheers The London Bar!
