A $10,000 Proposal Martini
The new (and expensive) way to pop the big question.
Hold on to your seats there, ladies. If you’re suspecting a nice shiny engagement ring this spring, you may want to coyly share this story with your man today (you know, to get the creative juices flowing).
The famous Algonquin Hotel in New York City, known amongst bookworms as the place where William Faulkner and Derek Walcott used to spend their time, is now offering an exceptional way to pop the question.
Behold, the most expensive martini in the world. For $10,000, a fiance-to-be can order a Grey Goose Proposal Martini. After a consultation to design the diamond engagement ring and determine size, carats, and setting with a private jeweler, the ring is placed at the bottom of a crystal martini glass. Then, while dining at the hotel’s famous Blue Bar, the Proposal Martini is served to a surprised girlfriend on a shining silver platter by a waiter in white gloves.
“I do,” surely follows.
Romantic, but we can definitely think of more ways to spend $10,000 on the proposal. Like, perhaps, spending $5,000 on travel arrangements, $5,000 on the ring, and putting it at the bottom of a plastic cup while on the beach in St. Bart’s. The white gloves would be optional. (Luxist)
