The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London is known for many things. One among them is its collection of exclusive cocktails, vintage & classic. The most luxurious drink of this vast array is the Diamond Cocktail, which is priced at $4,350! Quite aptronymously the drink has a real diamond in it, which may justify the cost! Yes you read that right; you are a served with a real diamond inside the cocktail.
The diamond cocktail is prepared from a blend of individual cognacs that range around $1000 per bottle. Also added to the drink is the Charles Heidsieck Vintage 2001 champagne. What’s more, one even gets to choose the kind of stone inside the drink! We know women have a weakness for diamonds, but if diamonds aren’t forever for you , you can even order the drink with a ruby replacing the diamond. The price of the drink may vary as per the selection of these stones.
Modestly speaking, the silky taste of this extravagant cocktail isn’t even half surprising as the stone swimming within it!
While this cocktail may not be on the menu or budget of the everyday customer, it is a grand alternative for special occasions like weddings, birthdays or maybe when you’re up for splurging! It is no wonder the expensive cognac, vintage champagne, Angostura bitters and sugar cube take the price of the drink to such astronomical heights.
The Diamond cocktail isn’t the only thing for cocktail lovers at the Sheraton Park Lane hotel. The hotel’s drink experts also offer its ‘Golden Age of Cocktails’ which celebrates the hotel’s iconic history with a collection of drinks. The cocktail history first opened its doors way back in 1927. Since then, the Sheraton Grand Park Lane has been a well known haunt, especially for the Bright Young Things in the 1920s Mayfair.
We all have been obsessed with diamonds in one way or the other. This is the most exquisite and distinctive way of indulging in your passion. We have heard of people proposing their lover with a ring in the cocktail, but imagine having a real diamond in it! Wouldn’t it be one of a kind?
Then again, if you have a special occasion like a wedding to celebrate, how about the bride and the groom taking their oaths on a diamond cocktail! There are innumerable occasions and probability of indulging in the diamond cocktail. All it takes is a fat wallet and a bit of spirit to treat yourself with it. But if done once, it is surely an experience of a lifetime.
Think about it: you deserve something nice. When was the last time you drink a cocktail that had a diamond resting on the bottom?
