Pearl Dust

Pearl Dust

There's a legend that Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, once bet Marc Antony that she could give the most expensive dinner in history. She sort of cheated and dissolved one of her pearl earrings in a cup of vinegar and drank it down. She won the bet. (source)

Well, now you too can recreate the most infamous cocktail in the world with this cool new Pearl Dust. Just sprinkle some of this fine dust made from genuine hand-crushed Chinese and Japanese pearls into your champagne, white wine, martini, etc. and it gives off a shimmering, pearly iridescence, smoothes off the acidic edge and some say, acts as a potent aphrodisiac. At around $14, it's much cheaper than crushing your own pearls and makes an interesting ingredient, but it probably won't win you any bets with any legendary Roman generals.
