The Beatles may have sung that "all you need is love," but I’m sure the Monica Martini by Minus5 Ice Bar wouldn’t hurt either.

For a breezy $10,000, those hoping to pop the question in ultra luxurious style can surprise their loved one with a vodka martini that comes complete with an Aaron Lelah Jeweler's diamond ring engraved inside its glass. The buyer of the Monica Martini by Minus5 Ice Bar gets to pick the ring, which is then put inside a martini glass made from "pure artesian water from New Zealand." The better and more salient point in all of this luxury and romance, however, is the question of how you get it out afterward. I’m picturing shards of glass flying every which way. If boats are traditionally christened by breaking a bottle, would it then stand to reason that so are engagements?
