(Newser) – Want to impress your date? How about a $40,000 drink? The Ruby Rose cocktail will be available starting in June at a Kennebunk, Maine, restaurant and inn. The secret ingredient: a 4-carat ruby. The idea was a guest's joke, but the White Barn Inn decided to take it seriously in honor of its 40th year in business—the ruby anniversary. The drink's less expensive ingredients include Hanger One Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower, grapefruit and pomegranate juices, and rosewater, the Portland Press Herald reports. The maitre d' believes the restaurant can sell two of the drinks: "The dollar amount is not the issue. It's the experience."

DUH. An overpriced ruby in a drink is an overrpriced ruby NOT a cocktail. Therefore I VooDoo have the worlds most expensive cocktail @ $86,500! It consists of 3 ounces of Porfidio tequila and a drop of fresh squeezed lime juice served in a Mercedes

"The dollar amount is not the issue. It's the experience." Experience of what? Proving to the world that you're an epic douchetard?

If that doesn't get you laid, it's hopeless.
