Disney is launching a new cruise ship called the Disney Wish. It's a fantasy experience in every way. The Disney Wish has a couple of themed restaurants called Avengers: Quantum Encounter and Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge. In the Star Wars lounge, one cocktail called the Kaiburr Crystal will cost $5,000! No, it's not served by George Lucas or even Harrison Ford. But it does come with a splashy presentation.
So what do you get for $5,000? It appears that more than person will get a glass, and the cocktail itself is made from some very expensive ingredients.
According to a bartender in the lounge, the galactic beverage is primarily made with Camus cognac. It also includes the Japanese citrus fruit, yuzu, as well as kumquat. Apparently, ritzy cocktails can never have enough cognac, because the Kaiburr Crystal also features Grand Marnier Quintessence, which is considerably pricier than Camus cognac. Speaking of pricey, the bartenders add shots of ultra-expensive Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 Year bourbon and Taylor's Fladgate Kingsman Edition Very Old Tawny Port.
But that's not all. Buy a Kaiburr Crystal and you'll receive bonuses like flowers and a bottle of wine from George Lucas's Skywalker Vineyards, and a pass to visit the vineyard. You can keep the sliver dish the drinks are served on, but not the camtono it's delivered in. Altogether, it's a lavish display of conspicuous consumption, perfect for the age of Instagram. -via Gizmodo
