Golden Sour

This Rum sour twist is inspired by El Dorado, South american lost city of gold. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Europeans believed that somewhere in the New World there was a place of immense wealth known as El Dorado. The popular story goes that  El dorado or "The Golden one" was a tribe leader who began his rule with a ceremony at Lake Guatavita. Accounts of the ceremony vary, but they consistently say the new ruler painted himself in gold and precious jewels were thrown into the lake to appease a god that lived underwater. El Dorado and his subjects were conquered by another tribe. But the Spaniards and other Europeans had found so much gold among the natives along the continent's northern coast that they believed there had to be a place of great wealth somewhere in the interior. 
Anyway, history lesson of the day done. this cocktail has a base spirit of Venezuelan rum, and is presented in a silver box, which has a green light emanating from it and a incense stick giving of the smell of a south american forest to immerse all your senses in the experience of the cocktail.
