Johnny Utahâ€™s, a Western-style restaurant located in New Yorkâ€™s Rockefeller Center, features both a mechanical bull capable of rendering you permanently paralyzed and a mixed drink, The Vault, that can do the same to your wallet. Johnny Utahâ€™s uses a $300 bottle of Herradura Suprema tequila to mix The Vault, along with grilled-lime juice and agave syrup. […]. The drink costs $51 and was touted as the most expensive margarita in 2007.
Regardless of whether or not you consider The Vault to be a true margarita, the Riverside Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has flattened that record with the Riverside Grand Margarita. This exclusive drink uses freshly squeezed lime juice; CuvÃ©e Speciale Cent Cinquantenaire, a special triple sec made to commemorate the Grand Marnier companyâ€™s 150th anniversary, and Patron Tequila Gran Platinum. Both the tequila and liqueur cost about $200 a bottle. The finished product costs $65, making it the most expensive margarita in the world.
