Guinness, one of my favorite beers. I can drink it in many different ways, combined with all kinds of dishes and snacks and I always happen to like the result. With the Guinness book of world records is almost the same thing.
Whenever you take a look you get surprised with the occurrences and you also get to learn all kinds of information very useful for your bar chat. So, in case you don't know what else to talk about with your bar pals, here are some of the most curious records regarding drinks.
The most expensive cocktail in history: five thousand five hundred pounds is the modest amount of money you would need to pay if you want to hold in your hands the last cocktail by Salvatore Calabrese. 20ml Dubb Orange Curacao 1860, 40ml cognac Vieux Clos de Griffier 1788 and 20 ml Kummel Liqueur from 1770, which is trimmed with great mastery and two touches of Angostura Bitter 1900.
The world's strongest beer: the name says it all "Armageddon" and its contents has nothing to do with the movie of the same name. 65% alcohol beer make it suitable only for those who enjoy the thrill.
The largest bottle of champagne that ever existed: more than five, ten... more, much more ... thirty liters nothing less. Its name, worth to remember, Armand de Brignac. Do you have something to celebrate?
The most expensive wine: we are talking about a red wine, that was clear, but guessing the name can be difficult because the truth is that there are many which populate the elite of exclusive and expensive wines. I will not leave you in suspense any longer. Penfold's Ampule is the number one.
And the price is justified, not only for its excellent quality Cabernet Sauvignon 2004, but for its hand-cut crystal and also because of the fact that there have been produced only a dozen bottles of this precious elixir that could become the jewel of the Indiana Jones next mission, according to the aura of mystery that follows its image.
And after all this information and unattainable names, I suggest to start with a toast (with Guinness of course) for them number ones, for those which finished second and follow choosing one of those wines that we would also place in the first position in our personal ranking , such as:
Lan Gran Reserva 2005
And if you want to get a record of your own, why don't you try this one?
