Kylie Minogue's £35k cocktail
This article is from 2008.
Kylie Minogue was given a £35,000 cocktail by a mystery admirer to celebrate her BRIT Award win.
The 'Wow' singer - who was named Best International Female at Wednesday night's prestigious bash (20.02.08) - was given the drink, called Flawless, at London's Movida nightclub.
The buyer did not want to be named but a source said: "He is known in the royal circles."
The expensive drink is made up of Louis XII cognac, half a bottle of Cristal Rose champagne, brown sugar, Angostura bitters and pieces of 24-carat edible gold leaf.
However, the main attraction is an 11-carat diamond ring in the bottom of the glass.
Whenever the drink is sold, Movida order two security guards to surround the drinker until they have finished.
While partying at Movida, Kylie had a flexibility competition with her fellow Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia.
The two women had to bend back as far as they could and onlookers claim Kylie was triumphant.
One said: "It was a close call. But Kylie probably won. It was all just for fun really."
Another told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "Winning a BRIT meant so much to Kylie, you could tell. She clearly just wanted to celebrate with her manager, record label and her girlie friends.
"She sneaked in through to her own little party, set up with flowers and loads of buckets of champagne.
"Kylie couldn't get enough of her own track 'Wow' - going crazy in the back room, bopping around and head banging with her gal pals when the track was played."
