If you thought spending $20 on a cocktail in New York was extravagant, think again. These martinis are on another level, and one of them actually comes with diamonds. From the delicious to the outrageous, these are the best martinis you can order in NYC.

1 Bemelmans Bar

Walking into The Carlyle, your first thought is probably about its timeless and luxe location -- and its Vesper Martini is no different. First made famous by Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, the iconic cocktail is a mix of gin and vodka.

2 Blue Bar, Algonquin Hotel

In the heart of Midtown Manhattan, unsurprisingly, you'll find one of the world's most expensive cocktails. Algonquin Hotel's "Martini on the Rock" comes complete with a diamond that can be customized as an engagement ring.

3 King Cole Bar

The legendary King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel is as luxurious as it gets when it comes to Manhattan glamour. One of the best places to get a Manhattan martini, the cocktail is a mix of Hendrick's gin, Martini Rosso vermouth, and Nonino Amaro.

4 The Rickey

The "Bourgeois Pig" at The Rickey is the stuff truffle lovers dream about. At $50 a pop, the decadent truffle martini is made with vodka, dry vermouth, bacon elixir, rosemary bitters, and to top it all off: a piece of shaved French Perigord black truffle, naturally.

5 Angel’s Share

Nicely tucked away on Stuyvesant Street and still a well-kept local secret, Angel’s Share serves a killer martini. It's not on the menu, but ask for one for a taste of one of the best martinis in the city. ($15)
