It uses a rare 1888 Armagnac and a 1990 vintage Cristal champers – as well as a healthy dose of real gold leaf!

The bank-busting boozy concoction was made last Thursday (25 September) at the opening of the plush Gigi's restaurant in Mayfair, London.

Manager Cesare Papagna was quoted in the Daily Mirror discussing the drink: "The taste was magnificent. But it isn't a cocktail you display on a blackboard. If you need to ask the price, you can't afford it."

We think we'll be sticking to happy hour down our local!
