The Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of Queen Elizabeth has attracted the attention of Britons, as well as the International press. According to financial experts, it is estimated that people in the UK will spend as much as £823 million to celebrate the Queen’s Coronation. Most of this money is expected to be spent on nationalistic items and special edition souvenirs that have been designed to mark the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. People are also expected to splurge on signature cocktails and dishes to mark this historic national event.

The Diamond Jubilee Fizz is an exotic blend of Louis XIII Cognac, rose essence and raspberry liqueur, with a topping of Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne. Besides a high from the costly cocktail mix, each customer will also take home a sparkling Leviev diamond. Billionaires and other people who wish to sip on this luxury cocktail, can walk up to the Amaranto Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel in London at Park Lane, and place an order. The Louis XIII Diamond Jubilee Cocktail will be available for sale throughout the month of June, 2012.

While this cocktail is pretty expensive, it is not the world’s most expensive cocktail. Just like this cocktail, the world’s most expensive cocktail also contains Louis XIII Cognac, but it also includes half a bottle of Cristal Rose champagne, as well as a little brown sugar, angostura bitters, and a few flakes of 24-carat edible gold leaf. The world’s most expensive cocktail is priced at a monstrous $71,011 a glass, which only the most uber-rich folks would be able to afford.
