Why is the cocktail called the Golden Dawn?

The Golden Dawn cocktail is said to have been named after the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a mystical organization founded in the late 1800s in London. The cocktail’s bright yellow color is thought to represent the dawn, while the name “Golden” alludes to the esoteric organization’s use of the color gold to represent spiritual illumination.
