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 popsicle 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 popsicle 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 popsicle for a mere $500. Sounds like a bargain…for Bill Gates.
