Go big or go home.

A Russian entrepreneur blew $50,000 for a cocktail purported to be the world’s most expensive.

Andrei Melnikov bought the pricey drink, which was made with a rare Hennessy blend described as the “jewel in the crown of the Hennessy Cognac range” that was served in a glass studded with four carats of diamonds from Italian Crivelli jewelers.

It was mixed up at an event to mark the opening of Moscow’s first-ever ice terrace at Reka Moscow restaurant, which opened the bar in the run-up to the Winter Olympics.

The 80-seat ice bar was created using 20 tons of Siberian ice. It comes complete with ice seats, ice bars and ice sculptures — and has special infrared heating system to keep the guests warm.

This latest Hennessy cocktail beats out the tab for a cocktail the Guinness Book of World Records recognizes as the world’s most expensive drink, called The Winston. Made by Joel Heffernan in February 2013, that cocktail was $12,970 and contained Croizet’s 1858 ‘Cuvee Leonie’ cognac –a cognac which also holds the world record title as the most expensive bottle of cognac.

Apologies to Steve Green if I am stepping on his territory here, but after two and a half days of listening to people argue about a TV commercial I felt like some liquor dreaming was in order. We all need goals.

It's why income inequality is a temporary condition for individuals, although always present.

Do not worry about Steve. His goal is to find the World's Least Expensive Cocktail That Does Not Lead to Blindness.

I wonder if it were 1,000 times better than your average cognac. Of course, since I don't drink that, I don't know what they cost. Maybe the average is $25,000.
