2. Most Cocktails Made in an Hour: 1,905
In 2011, Sheldon Wiley, the self-proclaimed “world’s fastest bartender,” mixed 1,003 drinks to break the Guinness World Record for “most cocktails made in one hour.” Though Las Vega mixologist, Erik Mora, did later go on to beat Wiley with 1,559 drinks, Wiley was able to reclaim the title in 2014 with a total of 1,905 drinks. According to official rules, each cocktail had to contain a minimum of three ingredients with at least one that’s alcoholic, and no two drinks could be the same.
Interestingly enough, a rivalry has developed between the United States and Germany as the title has also switched hands between the countries several times in the past. Even so, Wiley has managed to stay on top: in addition to this title, he also set the record for the most cocktails made in one minute with 18 mixed drinks. The secret to his success? Use of a soda gun, as opposed to only bottles, says Wiley.
