Add The Exclusive Cocktail

Gone are the days when Vegas was only known for gambling and cheap buffets. As home to some of the most prestigious resorts, restaurants, and spas in the world, Las Vegas can be as luxurious as it is entertaining. In between spa treatments and fine dining, you can find some of the most expensive cocktails in the world.

In fact, according to the University of Luxury, the top five most expensive cocktails in Las Vegas, easily compete with the most expensive cocktails in the world.

5. King Richard's Pride - $1,000

At BOA in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, King Richard's Pride is a $1,000 a drink consisting of Hennessy Richard, Dom Perignon Rosé 1996 and Chambord Liqueur Royale de France with a splash of lime and cranberry. Add an orange slice to the rim of a keepsake Baccarat cocktail glass.

4. The Presidential - $1,000

Body English at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino features a $1,000 martini called The Presidential. The price is driven by the best of the best — Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac and Dom Perignon champagne.

3. Duvet Passion - $1,500

The Seablue Restaurant at the MGM Grand serves a mix of rare and aged cognacs with the blend of vintage champagnes, garnished with a vanilla orchid petal. This drink for $1,500 was introduced on Valentine's Day in 2005. It's still loved today.

2. High Limit Kir Royale - $2,200

The second most expensive drink in Las Vegas used to be served inside of the The Teatro Euro Bar at the MGM Grand. It featured Louis Roederer Cristal Rose champagne, Hardy Perfection cognac, Grand Marnier Cent Cinquantenaire, and fresh muddled raspberries. The bar has since been supplanted by Rogue. It could be anyone's guess if Rogue stole the recipe.

1. Ménage a Trois - $3,000

As anyone might expect, the Wynn Las Vegas still lays claim to the most expensive cocktail in Las Vegas and the third most expensive in the world. The Ménage a Trois at Tryst is made with Cristal Rosé, Hennessy Ellipse and Grand Marnier Cent-cinquantenaire. 23-karat gold flakes and liquid gold syrup decorate the cocktail, which is sipped through a golden straw, studded with a 9-point diamond. The diamond is yours to keep.

Of course, if you're really looking for something more exclusive in Las Vegas than the Ménage a Trois, any cocktail ordered at The Cigar Bar inside The Stirling Club can compete with the world's most expensive drinks. The reason is simple. To even order a cocktail in The Cigar Bar, you have to be a member.

With membership comes other luxurious exclusives as well. In addition to being able to order the finest cognacs, cordials, and ports from around the world, Stirling Club members can store their personal cigars in exclusive humidors kept on property. And that is just one more reason The Stirling Club comes out on top as the place to find rare and rewarding cocktail experiences in Las Vegas.
