To break this record Ricardo's used a 14 ft. tall 10 ft. wide tank, 4,600 liters of ROSANGEL Tequila (1,215 gallons), 5,000 gallons of spring water, 750 quarts of Kelly Y Gonzalez lime juice, 750 gallons of La Paz Sweet and Sour, 1,500 liters of triple sec (396 gallons), and 20 pounds of salt.
"There is nothing more rewarding than being able to involve one's profession with charity. We are truly grateful to have the ability to give back and have people really enjoy themselves. It's a mega-feat for a mega-cause," said Scott Schiller, brand manager for ROSANGEL™."
A Guinness World Records rep was on hand to certify the feat.
The $60,000 marg, made with 7,800 gallons of pink tequila -- for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month -- was later served at the Flamingo Rd. eatery, along with a giant taco-eating contest.
"We are beyond excited to break the Guinness World Record for the ' World's Largest Pink Margarita '," said Ricardo's owner, Bob Ansara. "After over a year of planning this event it is exhilarating to make history and complete this project. We are so grateful to celebrate 30 years of business and could not think of a better way to celebrate with our community."
The previous Guinness World record for the Largest Pink Margarita was 7,039 gallons.
The event was staged to honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month and a portion of the proceeds benefitted Susan G. Komen for the Cure® of Southern Nevada.
