Mixologists have become renowned for their artfully crafted cocktails, which can take up to three days to create. (After I order a Manhattan in my favorite bar, I run a few errands, take a nap, then come back just in time to see the mixologist finish the drink.) One Vegas bartender is taking the opposite approach to mixology. Erik Mora, bartender at the Spearmint Rhino Gentleman’s Club, has broken the Guinness World Record for “Most Cocktails Made in an Hour.”
Mora made 1,559 cocktails, beating the previous 1,003-drink record set in 2011. Each cocktail had to contain at least three ingredients, and Mora couldn’t repeat any cocktail.
Guinness removed all records that had to do with alcohol consumption in 1991. Previously, there were records for “Highest Documented Blood Alcohol Level” and “Most Alcoholic Person.”
Today, you’ll find records for the “World’s Most Expensive Whiskey” ($460,000), the “Most Consecutive Bottle Bumps on a Forearm” (which is as ridiculous as it sounds), and the “World’s Largest Mojito.”
Other noteworthy records broken in 2013 (non-drink related): “World’s Largest Snowball Fight,” and “Largest Collection of Star Wars Memorabilia,” the owner of which is also known as “World’s Oldest Virgin.”
