This Margarita Costs $2,000 And Serves 8 People

If you remember when Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville” hit the airwaves, not only are you at least 40-years-old, you are probably too responsible with your money to drop a couple grand on a giant cocktail. Right? Right.

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the song that makes everyone want to ditch work, hit the beach and get drunk on wine coolers (or at least change the station), the JWB (James William Buffett) steakhouse at the Margaritaville Resort in Hollywood, Florida is offering a deluxe Ruby Margarita for $1,977.

If you’re wondering if the rim of the margarita glass is encrusted with fine jewels, you are sorely mistaken. Instead, according to Coastal Living, that price will buy you an eight-person batch of margarita, a Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker®, a Margaritaville Beverage Dispenser, a Margaritaville Party Tub, and eight Margaritaville Margarita Glasses. That better be one stiff drink.

This birthday deal is available from November 17-19.  If a Price Is Right Showcase Showdown-sized margarita package is not your thing, there’s a regular human-sized Ruby Margarita on offer at more than 30 Margaritaville locations through the month of November. For about $20, you get a souvenir cup along with your drink. Who wants to party like it’s 1977?
