If you really wanna splurge at the bar, you won't find many drinks more expensive than Louis XIII de Remy Martin. The super-fine cognac retails for upwards of $1,500 a bottle (it's sold in a $100 crystal decanter!). At Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse in Upper Arlington, Louis XIII is served at a typical price: $100 per ounce.

So is it worth it?

"It's something everyone should experience once to truly appreciate it," said Craig Dye, Hyde Park regional manager. "It's very smooth and very warming - everything you would expect out of a very old cognac."
