Shimmering liquid platinum margarita for $100 a glass
While the molten drink doesn’t look the most appetizing, it makes up for its dull grey color with its amazing shimmer and glisten.
A drink was created by Rael Petit, a world renowned bartender at Delilah in New York City, who came up with his “kids’ science fair” creation after a little trial and error.
"The first time I tried it, I couldn't understand why it wasn't working - I kept trying over and over and over again and basically after I gave up on it, I just left it aside in my fridge,” Petit said.
“The next day I woke up and it just changed color and created all these weird effects, like special effects but naturally made...it made no sense to me at first, but I actually made it happen!"
The swanky drink consists of agave, a French white vermouth, homemade rosewater, lime and Gran Patrón Platinum, which costs $200 a bottle. Xanthan gum is then stirred in. The drink must be stirred quickly to avoid turning into a thick lump. Edible silver powder is then added.
The concoction sits in a fridge for 24 hours to get the swirling effect, before being served with an edible silver orchid.
The molten cocktail will set you back $100 and will leave a silver stain on your lips, but it will make for a great Instagram photo.
