Best billionaire cocktails

Let's face it, even before Facebook's IPO, the singer Bono could afford to drink just about anything he wanted.  But now the U2 frontman, Facebook founders and other investors are laughing all the way to the bank thanks to the social media company and the IPO that has made them billionaires, and according to some estimates multi-billionaires. Forbes estimates that seven individuals would own Facebook's shares totaling over $25bn.

That's cause for some serious celebration in style.  You can always pop the Nebuchadnezzar of Armand de Brignac Midas --the world's most expensive champagne, which recently sold for $315000.  That may not be as good as an investment as Facebook though.  

Why not try a finely crafted cocktail fit for a billionaire.
