Super rich Britons now have a new thing to impress lesser mortals with: the world's most expensive cocktail.

A glass of the cocktail, which went on sale this week at an exclusive Manchester restaurant near Old Trafford (the football stadium of Manchester United) costs a mindblowing £15,250 (Rs 12,88,930)!

The drink, reported FemaleFirst, is said a heady concoction of champagne and a variety of pricey liquors.

However, the real reason for its staggering cost is found placed at the bottom of the glass: a 61/2 carat pink tourmaline and diamond ring.

The restaurant owners believe that a many rich footballers who visit the establishment frequently might be tempted to splurge on the drink in an attempt to impress their girlfriends.
