BATROUN, Lebanon, July 9 (UPI) -- Officials in a Lebanese city said about 400 residents turned out to squeeze lemons for a record-breaking world's largest cup of lemonade.

The city of Batroun and the Batroun Merchants' Association, organizers of the Batroun International Festival, said the participants set a Guinness World Record Sunday by creating a 1,373.69-gallon container of lemonade from 4,850 pounds of lemons, 2,204 pounds of sugar, 2,204 pounds of ice cubes and 792.5 gallons of water, The (Beirut) Daily Star reported Monday.

Officials said the process was supervised by a Guinness representative to ensure all the proper steps were taken to set the world record.

The lemonade was then distributed free to stores and restaurants, officials said.
