The Creation Story Behind the Bar:
One day, Ron and Nadine were swinging from Una de Gato vine to Cats Claw vine, searching for the mystical teachings of the purple cacao bean. Which by the way, hadn't been seen since Wonka's dream.
They swung under the canopy of the Pau D'arco tree to inhale the viola-hues of its lovely flowers, when all of a sudden their eyes divined the violet rays of the purple maize. This glow created a halo so Ron and Nadine could see the Majesty of Glee entwined with the Scepter of Vitality.
To elucidate, they ventured over to the vanilla orchid's oracle-gate. They were told cacao had the luminary strength of gold. The beans were to be mixed into a rich magenta-antioxidant-brew with orbs of camu, a squeeze of honey and yuzu. Rapt in this swirling of plants, they were entranced by the sweetest breeze, brought to their knees, blissed by the song of the angelic-neroli chorus praising the creation of this cacao-invocation.
