Vegas bartender breaks cocktail Guinness World RecordBy Becky Paskin
The Guinness World Record for the most cocktails made in one hour has been broken by a swift Las Vegas bartender, who created 1,559 drinks in just 60 minutes.
Erik Mora of the Spearmint Rhino Gentleman’s Club in Las Vegas shattered the previous record of 1,003 drinks set by New York bartender Sheldon Wiley in 2011.
To gain the title Mora was required to pour drinks that contained a minimum of three ingredients, one of which must be alcohol, without repeating a cocktail.
Supported by an army of helpers who simply provided ice-filled glasses, spirits and mixers, Mora managed to pour one cocktail every two seconds.
Speaking of breaking the Guinness World Record, Mora said: “I thought about breaking it two years ago and then applied this past January for the Guinness World Record, and now all my hard work has paid off. I feel like I’m the World’s Fastest Bartender.”
The event, which was sponsored by Svedka Vodka, was adjudicated by Pilip Robertson of Guinness World Records.
Mora’s tally will be added to the drinks section of the Guinness World Records hall of fame, which also includes the awards for most expensive cocktail made, the most consecutive bottle bumps on a forearm, and the world’s largest Mojito.
