Snoop Dogg breaks world record for largest gin and juice

The concoction used 180 bottles of Hendrick’s gin.

May 29, 2018

Snoop Dogg has his hands in so many pots these days (pun, uh, intended?) — aspiring chef, weed mogul, game show host—that it can sometimes be easy to forget that there was a time when the world only knew him as a rapper. This past weekend, though, Snoop managed to honour both his early musical career and current-day excess by breaking the record for making the world’s largest gin and juice.

Gin and juice world record.

The kinda gross, kinda refreshing-looking monument to Snoop’s Doggystyle-era jam stands five feet tall and three feet wide to hold a total of 550 litres of the cocktail —and within those litres are 180 bottles of Hendrick’s gin (the thought alone is enough to make both your head and your wallet hurt). The “drink” was then garnished with a life-sized parasol worthy of only the Southern-est of belles.

Snoop didn’t act alone in this feat though, being aided by fellow rapper Warren G and Top Chef’s Michael Voltaggio, with the Williams-Sonoma sponsored event taking place at this past weekend’s BottleRock Napa Valley festival.

We couldn’t be more proud for Snoop, though we must admit that we are a bit worried as to what the world’s largest plate of peaches and cream will look like now.
