How to 'right-size' the world's largest pink margarita
Tuesday 19 October 2010
On October 16, Rosangel Tequila, in partnership with the 30th anniversary of Las Vegas Mexican restaurant Ricardo's, celebrated breast cancer awareness by creating the world's largest pink margarita according to Guinness World Records.
The margarita filled a tank that measured 4 meters high and 3 meters wide with:
4600L of Rosangel Tequila
nearly 19,000L of spring water
710L of Kelly Y Gonzalez lime juice
2840L of La Paz Sweet and Sour
1500 liters of triple sec
19kg of salt
If you divide "this record-breaking libation" by "81,355" you will get a 355ml glass of a pink margarita.
Gran Centenario's Rosangel Tequila's ($44/€32) subtle pink hue is due to the infusion of hibiscus flowers, a first in tequila; however, it is 100% Agave Reposado (80 proof) and is aged for a few months in port wine barrels. http://www.rosangel.com
