At last, a Las Vegas publicity stunt we can really get behind!

In honor of the Grand Opening of the new Margaritaville Casino at Flamingo Vegas, Margaritaville will attempt to break the world record for the largest margarita ever made.

The mixing of the 8,500-gallon cocktail, named “Lucky Rita,” will begin Oct. 11, 2011. It’s expected it will take more than 300 hours, around the clock, to mix the giant drink. A “topping off” ceremony is set for Oct. 14.

Imagine this, times, oh, infinity.

The new record is expected to beat the standing record by 873 gallons. The record-breaking margarita will have 2,125 gallons of Margaritaville Gold Tequila, 708 gallons of Triple Sec, 5,667 gallons of Margaritaville Margarita Mix and Lemon-X sour mix and 22,667 lime wedges.

Lucky Rita will be 30 feet tall and will result in more than 181,000 margaritas being served from Oct. 14-23.

The record-setting event will kick off a week of Margaritaville-inspired festivities, including street parties on Oct. 15 and 22. The street parties begin at 11:00 a.m. and run all day. Admission is free.

The Lucky Rita event will take place on the street between Flamingo and O’Sheas.

If you can’t make it to the event, you can still enjoy the hooch-a-ganza (probably not a real word) by checking out a live feed. See it here, starting Oct. 7. The Margaritaville Casino has its “soft opening” on Oct. 1, 2011.
