I saw on the news this morning where 70 people paid $1000.00 each for a drink. It was made with pieces of an iceberg for the ice part.

Yes, it is made with ice from an Alaskan glacier and comes in a silver engraved Tiffany mint julep glass.

I wonder if you could use mint julep cups for iced (mint!) tea? I think they are so stylish!
