Baccarat Hotel’s New Gold-Leaf-Topped Cocktail Costs $450

Pair it with the bar's Royal Transmontanus Caviar, at $140 a serving.

The Baccarat Hotel & Residences in New York City offers high-end guest rooms and suites decorated with the property’s namesake crystal. And the cocktail menu items at its Les Boissons bar complement the accommodations’ luxurious feel.

For example: the $450 Sidecar Royal. It is a simple recipe of two cognacs, Rémy Martin Louis XIII and Grand Marnier Quintessence, mixed with just a squeeze of lemon juice. The Sidecar is prepared in the Baccarat’s signature 24-karat-gold-painted Harcourt glass, according to Robb Report, and garnished with a gold leaf.

If you like to snack while you drink this dreamy cocktail, you can order Hudson Valley Foie Gras for $26, or a cheese and charcuterie board for $36. Then of course, there is always the bar’s Royal Transmontanus Caviar for $140 a serving.
