This Memorial Day weekend in America, rapper Snoop Dogg mixed a 550 litre gin and juice.
In making the giant Paradise cocktail, 180 bottles of Hendrick’s and a lot of glugs of orange juice went into the Guinness World Record breaking cocktail.
What kind of cocktail glass do you need for the biggest ever gin and juice? A glass five feet tall and three feet wide.
Williams Sonoma, an upmarket American kitchenwares chain, sponsored the event on Saturday 26 May at the BottleRock Napa Valley festival in Napa Valley, California.
A Paradise cocktail consists of gin, obviously, plus brandy, orange juice and lemon juice. No word yet on how many bottles of brandy this took.
Snoop Dogg, rapper Warren G, and American Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio were partners for the record breaking event.
This giant gin and juice isn’t actually Snoop Dogg’s first rodeo as a gin tastemaker. Tanqueray appointed the rapper as a brand ambassador for Tanqueray 10 last year. Snoop selected 10 influencers deemed the “Tanqueray 10” to promote the brand’s premium small distilled Tanqueray No. 10.
Plus, this year saw the 25th anniversary of Snoop Dogg’s hit single “Gin and Juice.”
Celebrity spirits spokesmen and celebs with their own alcohol label are more commonly seen for other spirits, such as vodka and tequila.
You may have heard, however, that Ryan Reynolds is the new owner of Aviation Gin. The Portland, Oregon based gin is the Deadpool star’s new boss as of this past February.
