Melbourne, Feb. 25 (ANI): For all the margarita lovers with deep pockets, here’s the margarita of your dream.
An upscale hotel in New York City is now selling the ‘Billionaire’s Margarita’ for the price of 1668 dollars per glass, after scoring a bottle of the ultra-exclusive Patron en Lalique Serie 1, which costs about 10,424 dollars per bottle, reports News.com.au.
Jayson Goldstein, director of food and beverage at the hotel, who created this exotic cocktail, said that only 500 bottles of this series are produced to have limited production to keep it unique.
Talking about the margarita, he said it to be “really smooth” with nice vanilla and caramel notes to it with a hint of floral.
Goldstein also uses a half ounce of Louis XIII Cognac in his recipe, which typically runs about 521 dollars a shot.
While the bar has only sold just one yet, Goldstein says he’s seeing a luxury booze market moving toward high-end tequilas.
Distilled Spirits Council vice president Lisa Hawkins said tequila sales were booming by 9.4 per cent in 2015 in the United States overall. (ANI)
