The “over-the-top” concept is wholeheartedly embraced in Las Vegas, but there’s one particularly luxurious drink you can try that really takes this concept to another level. The $10,000 Ono Cocktail has served as a benchmark in Sin City, since it debuted on the club’s menu in 2009.
This premium cocktail for two includes an ultra-rare champagne (Charles Heidsieck 1981 to be exact) that retails for well over $500 per bottle, plus pristine custom-designed glassware to sip your bubbly from. Perhaps the ingredient that really helps the Ono earn its hefty price tag is a particularly rare brand of cognac, the Remy Martin Louis XVII Black Pearl, which usually goes for over $2,000 per shot. That’s right, not per bottle, but per shot. Approximately 786 bottles of the Black Pearl were produced, which combine a blend of twelve different, yet unbelievably smooth eau de vie. Each are aged between 40 and 100 years. If you were to buy a bottle, these can set you back anywhere between $60,000 to $100,000. To date, less than 30 Ono cocktails have been ordered to date. Those who have taken the plunge have been immortalized, as this is the type of drink that not just the entire club will know you’ve ordered it, but the entire Encore hotel. The XS ensures a proper gaudy bottle presentation complete with a procession of cocktail waitresses.
The Ono cocktail was named after the Polynesian God, Oro, who according to historians brought a black pearl to the princess of Bora Bora. With this legend in mind, the cocktail was created to appeal to both men and women. Every Ono cocktail order comes complete with a stunning set of cufflinks, along with a gold, diamond and pearl necklace. As you would expect, this special drink appeals to those looking to make a big splash and really enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The XS team have claimed that the Ono cocktail is “not about making money, but rather “it’s all about extravagance.” With this in mind, they’ve certainly succeeded in providing you with an unparalleled (and delicious) exercise Sin City excess.
