World record broken; TGI Friday's tries to look legit

Bobby "G" Gleason cut his teeth in Miami and has had some of the dream jobs of bartenders. He moved to Vegas and opened up some of the hottest bars out there, including his latest at Bellagio. He studied under some of the greats and now he has a world record.

Today he set the world record for the most cocktails in an hour. He made 253 cocktails in 60 minutes and made almost all of them using DeKuyper cordials and Hornitos tequila. Most bartenders average around a cocktail per minute, unless it's a busy Friday night when it seems that they do one every 5 minutes.

On the other side of the spectrum, TGI Friday's named their "Greatest TGI Friday's Bartender in the World." Though I'm sure it takes a ton of talent to whip out a lot of Banana Choco-Tini's on date night, I have a hard time being impressed. It's like being the best clown in the world. Sure, you're the best of something, but it's just kind of creepy.
