Have you ever wanted to break a world record? Well, you’re about to get your chance.

The Las Vegas chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) is inviting the public to help break the Guinness World Record for the largest alcoholic mixed drink. The benefit for Keep Memory Alive takes place at Apex Social Club atop Palms Casino Resort from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, November 5.

All attendees will have the opportunity to help mix (and later drink) the supersized gin and tonic by pouring a bottle of Empress 1908 Gin into a 300-gallon vessel 55 floors above the Las Vegas Strip.

Three hundred gallons? Talk about a stiff drink!

Considering the current Guinness world record-holding largest alcoholic mixed drink is a mere 181 gallons, Las Vegas is really taking this intoxicating challenge to a whole other level. The reigning drink was made at the Urban Food Fest in Shoreditch, London in June 2018 with 200 bottles of gin and more than 500 bottles of tonic.

Along with the color-changing gin from Victoria Distillers, Las Vegas’ attempted record-breaking drink will include a massive amount of Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic water and lime juice.

USBG anticipates breaking the world record around 7 p.m. Afterwards, the drink will be served to all the guests in attendance. Cheers to the taste of sweet victory!

Sin City is no stranger to breaking Guinness World Records. We’re currently home to the World’s Largest Observation Wheel (obtained by the High Roller at the Linq Promenade in April 2014), the Largest Fuzzy Dice (November 2011) and many more.

Monday’s event kicks off Keep Memory Alive’s “Month of Memories” for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, which is dedicating to raising awareness and funds for the deadly and incurable disease.

Tickets for the event are $30 for USBG members and $50 for non-members. All proceeds will be donated to Keep Memory Alive, which supports the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

Additionally, throughout the month of November, a portion of the proceeds for all Empress 1908 Gin and tonic cocktails sold at Palms Casino Resort’s restaurants and bars will be donated to Keep Memory Alive.
