Who Made the World's Largest Negroni?

If you're anything like us, you sometimes fall asleep at night dreaming of giant cocktails. That got us wondering, what are some world records in the cocktail category? Here are a few answers.

World's Largest Bottle of Whiskey

The world's largest bottle of whiskey has a name: It's called The Intrepid and it's a bottle that measures 5 feet, 11 inches tall and contains 311 liters (82.1 gallons) of 1989 Macallan single malt. Created for charity (The Marie Curie Charity), the bottle sold for $1.4 million in 2022 to Vietnamese businessman Viet Nguyen Dinh Tuan. He purchased the human-sized bottle of whiskey at an auction in Edinburgh, Scotland, in May 2022 and added it to his extensive collection of extremely rare single malt whiskeys.

Largest Two-Ingredient Mixed Drink Ever Made

The largest simple mixed drink ever created was whipped up in the United States—in Las Vegas, Nevada. On November 5th, 2018, members of the U.S. Bartenders’ Guild produced a 946-liter (250-gallon) Gin & Tonic made with Fever Tree Tonic Water and Empress 1908 Gin. The completed cocktail contained enough liquid to fill more than three standard-size bathtubs.

This gigantic purple G&T was served up to a fundraiser crowd at the Apex Social Club inside the Palms Casino, to benefit the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health at the Cleveland Clinic. The event was themed “Keep Memory Alive,” and in total the clinic raised more than $10,000 offering up individual glasses to attendees.

In the general cocktail category, the Gin & Tonic holds another world record as the Most Requested Cocktail in the World. According to a worldwide Bacardi survey, nearly one third of all global cocktail orders (28%) are for some version of a Gin & Tonic. Sometimes simplicity reigns supreme.

Largest Margarita Ever Made

In 2011, Margaritaville produced a "glass" of margarita that was actually a vat. It measured 5.2 meters (17 feet) tall and 3 meters (9.8 feet) in diameter. Named 'Lucky Rita,' the drink's total volume surpassed 32,176 liters (8,500 gallons) and was comprised of 8,081 liters (2,135 gallons) of Margaritaville Gold tequila, 2,760 liters (715 gallons) of Margaritaville triple sec, 8,640 liters (2,282 gallons) of Margaritaville Margarita mix, and 12,870 liters (3,400 gallons) of Lemon-x margarita mix.

The Lucky Rita, which took 60 people more than 300 hours to create, was developed to celebrate the grand opening of the Margaritaville Casino at The Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas.

Largest Mojito Ever Made

The world's largest mojito was created at 4-Jack’s Bar and Bistro, a popular hot spot in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The cocktail, which was made up of 700 liters (185 gallons) of rum and 300 liters (79 gallons) of lemon juice, comprised a total volume of 3,519 liters (930 gallons) and was served in a stainless-steel glass that measured nearly 10 feet in height.

The owner of 4-Jack's, Joel Villalona, organized the giant mojito event to thank his loyal patrons and supporters in Punta Cana.

Largest Negroni Ever Made

The largest Negroni cocktail ever created had a total volume of 633.65 liters (167 gallons) and was successfully assembled by the staff at the hotel Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, in Pathum Wan, Bangkok, Thailand.

The hotel decided to challenge the previous Negroni record on September 12, 2022, as part of their celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Negroni Week.

Largest Paradise Cocktail Ever Made

Famous rapper Snoop Dogg has been singing about "gin and juice" for decades, but he finally decided to create a world record with it. During an appearance at BottleRock Music Festival in Napa Valley, California, in May of 2018, Snoop enlisted the help of fellow rapper Warren G and Top Chef Season 6 winner Michael Voltaggio to create the world's largest Paradise Cocktail.

The finished drink, which measured 550 liters (145 gallons), was made up of 180 bottles of gin, 154 bottles of apricot brandy, and 38 jugs of orange juice.
