Low Cost Cocktails
If the sandy white beaches and roaring sunshine don’t draw you to Turkey, maybe the ultra cheap drink prices will. Turkey’s larger tourist areas such as Istanbul and Marmaris offer a rich variety of bars and restaurants and at £1.92 per cocktail, your round just got a whole lot cheaper.
Berlin is not just for beer drinkers (although should you wish to sample some, you can get it in abundance and for very low prices!) The craft cocktail movement has taken Berlin by storm in recent years, and there are now plenty of hip, speakeasy bars to grab an expertly prepared classic cocktail for just under £6.
Madeira, also known as the floating garden, is a subtropical Portuguese island just off the coast of South Africa. It’s less well known than the Algarve itself, but just as idyllic, and boasts stunning botanicals and lush greenery, as well as affordable cocktails. At £6.34 a cocktail, you can’t complain, especially with a backdrop so beautiful!
Most Expensive Cocktails
Unsurprisingly at the top of our list is Italy, with £9.29 being the highest price for a cocktail of the entire selection. If the thought of drinking your spirits mixer free doesn’t make you flinch and neither does parting with some serious cash, this could be your ideal getaway destination. Milan is home of gothic architecture, the Last Supper, and the most boozy cocktail on the block, so if you like your Negroni’s strong and have expensive taste, it could be the place for you… Saluti!
