When your homey Dr. Dre comes through with a gang of Tanqueray, what are you going to do? Well obviously you’re going to roll up on the stage, sippin’ on a massive gin and juice.

Snoop Dogg set a Guinness World Record on Saturday at the BottleRock festival in Napa, California, when he and some helpers from Williams Sonoma crafted a Paradise cocktail clocking in at over 550 liters, or 132 US gallons.

The Paradise is an International Bartenders Association-recognized cocktail, which contains gin, apricot brandy and orange juice. To make the world record-winner, Snoop and co. dumped 180 bottles of Hendricks gin, 154 bottles of apricot brandy into a giant glass along with 38 gallons of orange juice, according to Guinness World Records.

That’s enough to make over 7,000 standard-size cocktails.

The rapper’s super-sized signature drink was garnished with a massive straw, a full-size parasol umbrella and ice cubes bigger than the D-O-double-G’s head.

Snoop Dogg celebrated his victory with a smoke that may or may not have been indo. As for us, now we’ve got our minds on our cocktails and our cocktails on our minds.
