Liquid Gold

Dallas' top 5 ridiculously expensive drinks


Extravagant cocktail, age 6: a Black and White (half Coke, half Sprite) at the soda machine.

Extravagant cocktail, age 19: Jungle Juice at the frat house, combining, uh, twelve different kinds of liquors with Kool-Aid. Touch of Everclear.
Extravagant cocktail, this weekend: Grab your black card for one of Dallas' 5 most expensive and ridic cocktails.

Sometimes you gotta go big and live in the now. Now is that now.
5. The Macallan 25 at The Second Floor
Proving that no evening with a 25-year-old comes cheap, a single-malt sipper of The Macallan 25 will set you back a Benjamin and a half. Rocks, of course, are complimentary.
$150. 13340 Dallas Pkwy. (inside the Westin Galleria), Far North Dallas (972-450-2978).

4. Asombro Añejo Margarita at Asador
Nothing gets a party started like our good friend, Señorita Margarita. Celebrate in style OK, with some style to spare with a round of Asombroso Anejo Tequila margaritas for the entire gang that no one will ever forget. Unless someone orders another round.
$150 each. 2222 Stemmons Fwy, Market Center (214-267-4815).

3. Chimay Blue at The Holy Grail Pub
Three-liter bottles aren't just for sodas. Here, you and your friends can share a massive bottle of Chimay Blue, an authentic Belgian beer with a whopping 9% alcohol by volume, more than double your typical domestic light. Which makes the buzz-by-volume ratio pretty rad.
$200. The Holy Grail Pub, 8240 Preston Rd., Plano (972-377-6633).

2. Cristal Poolside at Hotel ZaZa
Few places in Dallas are more see-and-be-seen than the pool at Uptown's most chic boutique hotel. Here is where you simply must call attention to your greatness by ordering up a bottle of Cristal (Louis Roederer) for a mere $450. A required 20% tip could be just enough to get the server's number.
$450. 2332 Leonard St., Uptown (214-468-8399).

1. Cognac at AT&T Stadium
When you rent a suite at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, certain things are expected. Extravagance, for one. So live like Jerry's heir and wrap your giant foam finger around a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII cognac. Just please don't pour it in a stadium cup.
$3,200. 1 Legends Way, Arlington (817-892-4000).
