  • Diva Vodka rings in at an astounding $1,000,000. The triple-filtered vodka is first ice-filtered, passing through Nordic birch charcoal -- whatever that means. It is then filtered through sand that contains both precious and semi-precious gems. Finally, it is packed in a bottle containing Swarovski crystals that run through the middle of the bottle, increasing the overall price. (Photo: richpeoplebuy.com)

  • The Winston Cocktail holds the new Guinness World Record for the most expensive cocktail at $12,916. The cocktail was created by Australian bartender Joel Heffernan and is named after Winston Churchill.
