Snoop Dogg is known for his timeless hit Gin & Juice, but you’d need to be on some heavy thirst to be sippin’ on this world record version that he recently was a part of.
His colossal cocktail broke a Guinness World Record when it was debuted at this year’s Bottlerock Festival in Napa Valley, CA. Snoop called in the squad to make the massive mixed drink, including Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio and rapper Warren G.
They utilized 180 1.75-liter bottles of gin, plus 156 1-litre bottles of apricot brandy and 28 3.78-liter jugs of OJ to construct the gargantuan gin & juice. That’s over 132 gallons of boozy beverage, for those counting. There was also a giant straw, pink umbrella, pineapple, and a whole watermelon speared through a sword as a garnish.
Guinness is dubbing the feat as the “World’s Largest Paradise Cocktail” since gin & juice falls under that category. There doesn’t seem to be a general cocktail record, though, so Snoop’s creation technically has that title as well.
While the crowds at Bottlerock clamored for a taste of the world record beverage, it was reserved for VIP attendees, who got to try it alongside Voltaggio’s Jamaican jerk chicken.
The Doggfather’s feat comes 25 years after his hit song featuring the drink debuted, making the Bottlerock achievement almost like a party on the west coast to celebrate the occasion.
