The Most Expensive Cocktails in London

Ready to experience the best in alcoholic luxury – or at least read about it?

Keep reading to find out the most expensive cocktails London has to offer.

The B&B King – Purple Bar

Purple Bar may be a great place to grab a drink due to its aesthetic and atmosphere. It isn’t necessarily categorized as affordable, but with luxury like that, nobody’s really expecting it to be.

Typical cocktails at Purple Bar are typically priced in the 14-pound range. However, there’s one diamond located on that menu: the B&B king.

While all the cocktails at Purple Bar can boast expensive and luxurious ingredients, the B&B king takes it to an entirely different level.

It’s a twist on a popular drink from the 1940s. As such, it’s mixed using 1940 Martell Extra and a bottle of 1940 Benedictine.

The B&B King boasts a hefty price tag of 490 pounds, but it may be worth it to step back in time a few decades.

The Sazerac – American Bar

For the next of our expensive cocktails, we’re taking a step up and heading to American Bar at the Savoy Hotel.

Similar to Purple Bar, the Savoy isn’t known for its affordable drinks. If you’re on a budget, you’re likely to avoid it. This hotel bar is in the lap of luxury, so it makes sense that their menu would reflect that.

The most expensive cocktail on their menu, the Sazerac, goes for about 5000 pounds.

The menu states that it’s an upscale version of an Old Fashioned, sort of a remix on an old favorite.

It claims that the drink’s roots reach all the way back to the early 19th century.

The drink itself is made from Sazerac de Forge from 1857. This is a classic brandy which was in heavy use in the era. Pernod Absinthe from the 1950s is added to the mix, along with bitters from the 1900s.

Daiquiri – American Bar

We’re going to stick around at American Bar for the next of our expensive cocktails. Similarly to the Sazerac, the hotel bar’s daiquiri also sports a hefty price tag.

It’s somewhat more affordable than the Sazerac, and will net you a receipt for 600 pounds.

Their recipe tends to lean toward the classics, and the staff makes sure the rum is evident in every drink you take. However, they understand that the lime needs to add that refreshing zing, just enough to sweeten it.

The daiquiri at American Bar even goes so far as to speak to the quality of the ice they use to chill the drink.

If that’s not dedication, then what is? With such care toward the ingredients, this definitely deserves a place on our list of London’s most expensive cocktails.

Salvatore’s Legacy – Playboy Club

While American Bar’s daiquiri may have come as a relief from four-budget numbers, this drink is going to get us jumping right back up there.

While the Playboy Club may not exactly inspire images of class and sophistication, the Salvatore Bar is an oasis in a desert of sleaze and showing off.

If you’re looking for something that will just make you feel more refined, expensive cocktails are the way to go. In particular, the Salvatore’s Legacy will help you get where you need to go.

Salvatore’s Legacy comes with a price tag of 5,500 pounds. However, that price speaks to the ingredients of the drink.

What goes into this elixir? The 1770s Close de Griffier Vieux Cognac, along with 1770 Kummel liqueur. Dubb Orange Curacao from circa the 1860s along with bitters from the 1900s go on to top off this luxurious drink.

Diamond Cocktail – Sheraton Park Hotel

The Diamond cocktail from Sheraton Park Hotel has a 4,350-pound price tag attached to it. You know, so you don’t get your hopes up too quickly.

What makes it fetch that price? It could have something to do with the real diamond that’s included with the drink.

That’s right. You read correctly. Don’t adjust your screen. A real diamond.

The stone can be customized. You can swap it out for another stone of your choice if you’d like.

However, the ingredients in the drink also help throw it to astronomical heights. There’s a blend of several types of cognac, each reaching about $1000 per bottle. It also includes Charles Heidsieck Vintage 2001 champagne.

While these may not be on the menu or budget of the everyday customer, they’re a great option for special occasions, tourists, or if you’re just ready to splurge.

Think about it: you deserve something nice. When was the last time you drink a cocktail that had a diamond resting on the bottom?

Check out these exclusive, sophisticated bars and dive right into luxury.
