LONDON, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A British bar owner said he has concocted the world's most expensive cocktail, costing $8,837 per glass.

Salvatore Calabrese, owner of the Salvatore's bar at the Playboy Club London, said his "Salvatore's Legacy" cocktail includes 1778 Clos de Griffier Vieux Cognac, a 1770 Kummel liqueur, a Dubb Orange Curacao from about 1860 and Angostura bitters from the turn of the 20th century, Sky News reported Monday.
