Would You Drink A Cappucino Made With 24-Karat Gold?
You could call it the money shot. The Burj Al Arab hotel, famous for its sail-like silhouette across the Dubai skyline, has created "The Ultimate Gold Cappuccino" at its atrium café, the Sahn Eddar lounge.
Along with blending "a generous quantity" of 24-karat gold into the espresso, the drink is then topped with Italian gold flakes and embellished with the trademark sail-like design on the cappuccino foam.

The drink is paired with a chocolate marshmallow, also sprinkled with a shower of finely-milled gold flakes.
The mid-afternoon coffee break set is served on a fine-bone, gold-gilded china in keeping with the theme.
Though bougie, indeed, the Ultimate Gold Cappuccino is not completely out of the regular Joe's reach at US$26.
