Blip #1 – The world’s most expensive cocktail
Occasionally, I shoot a job that just produces a single frame that I really like and want to share but don’t want to dilute it by padding it out with filler pictures or exceptionally tedious waffle (beyond the usual level) so I’ve decided to start “The Blip“. This will be a
toxic dumping ground visual feast of random oddities that I want to stick on here before they got lost in the all-consuming beast that is the AFP archive. I may not blow the usual social media fanfare whenever I post these so I guess it’ll just be yet another reason to pay this site a visit, you lucky lucky people. Kicking off this momentous new chapter in our lives, we have a touch of luxury.
Salvatore Calabrese pours the first glass of what he hopes to be the world’s most expensive cocktail, “Salvatore’s Legacy” at his bar in the Playboy Club, London. The cocktail uses four ingredients: a 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, a 1770 Kummel liqueur, a circa-1860 Dubb Orange Curacao and two dashes of Angostura bitters dating from around 1900.
