Everybody seems to want to get their hands on a little gold in today’s economy, but what about their lips? Now there’s a cool way to do just that.
For those who can still afford it, the Marquis Los Cabos resort in Baja California Sur, Mexico is offering a $1,000 ice pop made from 24 ct. gold flakes and Tequilas Premium Clase Azul Ultra, which goes for $1,500 a bottle.
The icy treat is served poolside on a classic plastic stick and has a little sugar in it to take the edge off, though salt would seem to be more appropriate.
The patrician pop joins a world of fantasy foods that includes the $1,000 pizza served at Nino’s Bellisima restaurant in New York and the $1,200 Mai Tai mixed up at the the Merchant Hotel in Belfast, Ireland.
