    The world’s most expensive cocktail contains a diamond ring instead of

    cocktail contains a six and a half carrot pink tourmaline and diamond
    ring set in 18-carrot white gold. The drink was the brainchild of
    senior bartender Jay Malik, 24, who was asked to devise a drink to fit
    with the restaurant’s Pink Dinners month. A special safe has been
    brought in for the bar to keep the rings in and customers can choose
    any ring they want from the range – the most expensive being a 27,000
    pounds sterling two-carrot engagement ring.
