Jay-Z is a billionaire music producer, rapper, headliner and businessman, but now he can add 'immortalised in cocktail form' to his bulging CV.
This '99 Truffles' cocktail has been created by expert mixologist and Creative Director at 'All About the Cocktail', Charlie McCarthy.
He's referenced Jay's amazing jewellery collection with Stolichnaya Gold vodka combined with notes of pears and ginger, which is perfectly off-set by the surprisingly savoury tones of basil and truffle.
