While doing our research for Cocktail Week 2015, many local bartenders mentioned the $100 Gold Martini that The Setai Miami Beach serves. While racking up a $100 bar tab in this town is rather easy, one drink rocking a $100 price tag by itself is still rather rare. So we broke down the recipe using the prices given to us by Total Wine to figure out if it is worth making at home.
Setai uses: Russian Standard Vodka Gold Edition
Cost for amount used: $1.33
Setai uses: Grand Marnier "Cuvée 1880"
Cost for amount used: $7.01
Setai uses: Louis XIII Cognac De Rémy Martin
Cost for amount used: $25.50
Setai uses: Riesling Ice Wine by Mission Hills
Cost for amount used: $5.69
Setai uses: 24 Carat Gold Flake
Cost for amount used: $3 (approximately)
Grand Total: $42.53
Is it worth it to make at home? We aren't entirely sure. It's quite the hefty initial investment since Louis XIII bottle alone will cost you close to $3,000. So if you've got that kind of money go for it, but we have a feeling if you do, you won't care about saving $57.47.
