There are times your bar tab comes and it looks more like a scroll than a bill.
 
As much as you've splurged in the past, you've probably never dropped over a hundo on a single cocktail. Until now? To celebrate The Roosevelt New Orleans' 125th anniversary, The Sazerac Bar is serving The Sazerac 125 made with the famed and very rare Thomas Handy Rye, named after the New Orleans bartender who was the first to use rye whiskey in the classic sip. The commemorative drink will be sold in limited quantities—only 125 drinks will be available for purchase. Beverage bonus: you'll get to keep the embossed keepsake glass.
 
It's the tippy top of the top shelf.
