Giant Coffee Breakdown

2008_11_coffee.jpgThe stats are in from yesterday's totally-necessary stunt at the Buena Vista to craft the largest Irish coffee in the world. The 12-gallon, 3-foot-tall glass contained nearly 10 liters of whiskey, 10 gallons of coffee, a gallon of cream and more than 4 pounds of sugar. But after all that, it's still unknown whether or not an actual record was set: "There is a six to eight week turnaround after the cafe files all materials before finding out whether the record has been set."
