Bartender Salvatore Calabrese, owner of the London Playboy Club, broke the Guinness World Record for most expensive cocktail when he created an $8,817 drink called “Salvatore’s Legacy.” Surprisingly, it did not include liquified precious gems or tears of Jesus H. Christ, but instead a mix of old-ass booze, totaling a combined age of 730 years. The recipe, for the two assholes in the world who actually have access to the ancient liquor, follows.

Salvatore’s Legacy

• Two parts 1788 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac

• One part Kummel Liqueur from 1770

• One part Dubb Orange Curacao from 1860

• Two dashes of 100-year-old Angostura Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into martini glass. For added indulgence, sip it through a diamond-encrusted grill.
