There’s a new world record holder.
And he goes by the name of Snoop D-O-DOUBLE-G!
We kid you not. Snoop Dogg was part of a successful Guinness World Record attempt on Day Two (May 26) of the BottleRock Napa Valley festival. The other members of the team included fellow hip-hop legend Warren G and “Top Chef” winner Michael Voltaggio, who appeared together on the festival’s Williams Sonoma Culinary Stage.
They set the record by mixing up the biggest cocktail that, well, the people at Guinness (or anyone else, really) had ever seen.
And, of course, the cocktail was “Gin and Juice,” the concoction that Snoop made famous on his all-time-great debut, “Doggystyle.”
An official from the Guinness organization was on hand to present the certification of achievement to Snoop and crew. The certificate proclaimed, “The largest cocktail was created by Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Michael Voltaggio, Kim Kaechele and Randall Coleman (All USA) in Napa, California, USA on 26 May 2018.”
And, no, we weren’t too sure what what a “paradise cocktail” is either. Apparently, though, gin and juice is a kind of paradise cocktail. Wikipedia says “The Paradise is an IBA official cocktail, and is classified as a ‘pre-dinner’ drink, an apéritif.” But not sure if that has anything to do with what we are talking about here.
Snoop Dogg also performed on Day Two festival, drawing a huge crowd opposite The Killers, who also drew a massive audience on the main stage.
