The martini that lasts forever

Diamond-tiniAn extravagant vodka martini is now available at a hotel in Japan for the uber rich.

The "diamond-tini", a cocktail with a hint of lime and chilled Belvedere vodka over a 1.06-carat stone, is topping the Ritz-Carlton beverage menu at a cool 1.8 million yen ($15,000).

That price includes drink preparations tableside, a serenade of "Diamonds are Forever" as a cut stone slides to the martini glass bottom, and later a ring mounting by a local jeweller.

"It’s a timeless drink and diamonds are a girl’s best friend, so you combine both this time of year in Japan when proposals are rampant," says hotel manager Bernard Viola.
