The $1000 Tequila Popsicle
Hot on the heels of the world’s most expensive tequilas we bring you the $1000 tequila popsicle. This intoxicating treat can be found poolside at Marquis Los Cabos resort in Baja California Sur.
The popsicle consists of a plastic stick, Clase Azul Ultra tequila, 24-carat gold flakes, and a little sugar. The tequila alone costs $1700 per bottle in Chicago, and while gold prices have been down the past few months, it’s back above $1600 per ounce.
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.
Of course, if sweets aren’t your thing, Marquis Los Cabos will be happy to pour you straight shot of the tequila used in the ice pop for a mere $500. Sounds like a bargain…for Bill Gates.
