Nobody really knows how much of each ingredient to put into this drink. Mainly because it's for billionaires who like an excess of anything and everything. So why not fishbowl it? Pour all ingredients into the largest glass bowl you can find and slurp it up. Excuse me, I mean chug it in the most expensive-looking way possible (preferably while making it rain). Or you can stop into Employees Only and let a super fancy mixologist make you one for $16 a pop. But you're a billionaire so why not buy the whole place a round?
