Last night in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a guy bought a taco and a shot of tequila. Unusually though, the pairing cost him $27,960. And for Cinco de Mayo, you can too.
The single taco — created by chef Juan Licerio at Cabo’s luxe Grand Velas resort — included a gold-infused corn tortilla filled with Kobe beef, langoustine, the most expensive caviar in the world, and a black-truffle Brie cheese. An “exotic” salsa created from chiles, ultra-premium tequila, and kopi luwak, a rare coffee “made from partially digested cherries that are gathered from the excrement of the civet, a wild cat found throughout Asia.”
The extra-aged tequila was no less lavish, poured from a $3.5 million “Ley Diamante” bottle which took 10 months to craft and is encrusted with 4,100 diamonds.
Though, much like the $10,000 burger that sold in Dubai in March, the proceeds went to charity.
The funds will go to the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation, and will be used for the non-profit’s programs of oncology, cardiology and pediatric intensive care.
