Move over, edible gold garnish. Now you can order a stunning cocktail that looks like molten metal.

This futuristic drink, dubbed the Liquid Platinum Margarita, combines Gran Patron Platinum tequila (retail price: $200), Dolin vermouth, rose water, agave syrup and lime juice. Then an edible platinum pigment is swirled into the mix to create an out-of-this-world homage to metallic mixology.

This limited-time galactic wonder—which, at $100, tops the menu at Lower East Side hotspot Delilah—is served in a coupe glass and garnished with an edible silver orchid. The craziest part? Thanks to a pinch of xanthan gum, the finished creation sparkles and swirls all by itself!

Looking for other cocktails with an otherworldly appearance? Right this way:
