The Guinness World Records world record for the longest domino drop shot consisted of 4,578 shot glasses and was achieved by the Huddle Sports Bar & Grill (UAE), in Dubai, UAE on 5 September 2016.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive shot of cognac; it was sold at the Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE, on 7 August 2008. 40ml (4cl) of the 'Hardy Perfection' brand is available at £1,353 ($2,226).
Every year, people line Main Street in Breckenridge attempting to break the world record for the longest shot ski — and successfully so.
According to Powder, the original record was set by 666 people and 219 skis, but in 2016, nearly 888 Coloradans put that record to shame at Ullr Fest in Breck.
The four day festival in Breckendridge celebrates the norse god Ullr who is known for his love of snow and cold. Along with skiing, food, and drinks the event hosts many activities including a parade and floats as well as a chance to drink from an enormous shot ski.
