The MGM National Harbor, a new luxury resort just outside of Washington D.C., has debuted its $1,000 Dom-arita.
The recipe mixes Don Julio 1942 tequila with Grand Marnier Quintessence liqueur, agave nectar, lime juice and seasonal fruits. The drink is then finished off with an entire bottle of Dom Pérignon Champagne. Not only do you get to drink some Dom, but the popular Champagne also acts as a fancy garnish, hovering over the cocktail. The beverage is meant to be shared with four to six people.
Bartender Antony Sazerac said he was inspired to create the recipe from the tagline of the Blossom cocktail lounge at MGM National Harbor: “Be the center of attention.” When you order this drink, that’s pretty much guaranteed.
