This Record-Breaking 95-Gallon Daiquiri Is Exactly What We Need Right Now
Political affiliation aside, we can all agree that alcohol was the real winner last week. Online alcohol delivery service Drizly saw an 86% jump in order volume on Election Day with hard liquor orders increasing as the night progressed. With emotions frayed and the country divided, it won't be surprising to see a trend of booming booze sales to cope with a changing America.
To numb the pain and give the people what they want, Cleveland's Porco Lounge concocted a world record-breaking 95-gallon daiquiri, complete with the cocktail's signature umbrella.
On November the 11th, 2016, at 12:38 pm e.s.t., Porco Lounge & Tiki Room set the new record for crafting the World's Largest Daiquiri at 95 Gallons. Many thanks to @appletonestateusa, @vitamix and the Fabulous Food Show for helping make this a reality. Thus it is written, thus shall it be.

Using 80 bottles of Appleton Estate rum, simple syrup, lime juice and ice, the tiki bar tasked four mixologists and a team of barbacks to man four 1.5 gallon Vitamixes until the giant Tiki mug was filled.
While the feat is certainly impressive, taking only 38 minutes to complete, it looks like we're going to need a daiquiri that can fit 60 million straws. Who's up for the challenge? We're looking at you, Dubai.
