Lucy in the sky with mojitos

Would anyone care to explain why a mojito cocktail in Singapore's prime spot, New Asia bar, located on the 71st floor of the Swiss hotel, costs 7 USD, while the same cocktail in 22nd floor of Reval Hotel's Skybar in Vilnius, Lithuania, costs nearly double?

Don't tell me it's supply and demand, as I have a few good, and probably quite angry arguments against that.

hits market

Answer is simple. It's hits market. Mojito is hit in Vilnius :). Trendy stuff. So if they pay, why not. In Singapore it's just one of the "long tail" cocktails ... That's my point of view.
