How Much is Inside a Cocktail?

Long Island Iced Teas. These things are a nightmare. Check out this recipe:

1 oz. gin - 20
1 oz. rum - 22
1 oz. tequila - 29
1 oz. vodka - 22
1 oz. triple sec - 20
1 oz. sweet & sour - 14
ounce of coke 1

Total $1.28


I almost can't believe these things are potable. Five ounces of liquor flavored with two?

Whatever the opposite of a miracle is, this drink is it.

Nick demonstrates the addition of Angostura bitters to an old fashioned.

2 oz. whiskey - 50
2 oz. soda - 4
sugar - 1
bitters - 17
cherry- 10

Total - 82

Nick and Victor.

I left out the cost of ice, but collected price information on the most popular garnishes.

maraschino cherries $2.59/25 - 10 each
pineapple chunk $2.19 can - 4 each
mint leaves $3/100 - 3 each
sugar $5.39/1134 servings - 1/2 each
salt $1/350 servings - freeish
big olives $5.59/30 - 18 each
little olives $5.99/104 - 6 each
cocktail onions $3.29/72 - 6 each
lime wedge 50/8 - 6 each
lemon wedge $1/8 - 12 each

Some readers may recognize this list as the Chelsea Handler diet.


Garnishes add up. Depending on their size, the three olives in your drink might cost more than the Three Olives in your drink.

Now hold onto your cocktail onions, because I jammed all of this pricing information into an overly-complex cocktail-cost calculator on the next page. You'll be able to pull out a price for any drink you can think of, even those biblical ones they made Val order at her batchelorette party.

But you don't need a calculator to reach this conclusion: You can save money by drinking cocktails at home.

With any luck, you won't be the only one there.
