EvilEgg: Actually the reason is that I think buying a chick a $38 cocktail will get me laid.Also anyone put high-end spirits into a mixed drink is a little stupid. You can't taste the subtleties you paying all that money for.
doglover: Cocktails are for people who can't drink.Real drunks choose STERNO!
PainInTheASP: Any writer the word "bespoke" four times in an article really needs to get a new thesaurus.
blackhonda: Whats the word ThunderbirdWhats the price 50 twice
txchad: shiatcake mushrooms? What's a shiatcake mushroom?
Random Anonymous Blackmail: That is a hell of a lot of money for a drink/I know I sound poor.
Egoy3k: I've bought $30 cocktails before
t3knomanser: Egoy3k: I've bought $30 cocktails beforeI've bought $30 shots before. I can't envision paying that much for a cocktail. Then again, I have my own variant of a martini that describes my feelings about cocktails.The t3knomartini:Keep your Bombay Sapphire in the freezerPut olives in a cocktail glassPour frozen gin over themTake vermouth, and add it to your tomato sauce that you're having for dinner, because that's not going in the drinkDrink your martiniYes, I'm quite aware that it's just very cold gin in a glass. It's delicious.
Alexei Novikov: $30 will get me a whole bottle of Belvedere. Get your farking fruity drink bullshiat away from me, and hand me the shotglass on your way out.
Johnstarr: It was Tiger, Guinness, Heineken
rka: Chinatown was like $5-$7 for a big bottle.
eyeq360: $38 for a cocktail?Amateurs.There are cocktails that costs thousands of dollars each, as they are made out of the finest and most expensive ingredients ever like $100,000 bottles of cognac from the 1850s and served in hand-cut crystal gilded in gold.Come again later when you beat the world record.
SirEattonHogg: Johnstarr:$38 Singapore ($30 USD) isn't much more outrageous than what they usually charge over there in the nice areas (Orchard Road, Boat Quay, Raffles). I was regularly paying $10+ USD for beer over there and it wasn't even fancy beer. It was Tiger, Guinness, Heineken- stuff they brewed ON THE DAMN ISLAND. Rail cocktails were $15-20 easy, and bottles were $DON'TASK.The problem is, people pay that much because they can afford that much. There are some really rich people over there. They think the visitors are also that rich, but we aren't. Some of us are there on business and have to pay for our own drinks.For the record, at the 4 Floors of Whores, $80 got you a drink and a (presumably) licensed prostitute. But that doesn't include full-service.Yeah, that's kind of the same at some of the posh joints in Hong Kong. The high concentration of tycoons and investment bankers makes these prices possible. So, worse - you pay 20, 30 bucks for a drink to hang out with the biggest a-holes in the city. As some of us joke - the 80's never left Hong Kong.Luckily, there is still happy hour at a lot of bars. And if you're really hard up you can booze at 7-11 (yes, same 7-11 as in the US) - the cheapest joint in the former colony!
