HAVANA, July 22 (UPI) -- Mixologists at the El Floridita bar in Havana say they made a record-breaking 71-gallon daiquiri as part of the celebrations of the bar's 195th anniversary.

It took two waiters about half an hour to fill a 6.5-foot-tall cocktail glass with the rum, lemon and sugar concoction, World Records Academy, Miami, reported.

El Floridita, which is located in an older part of Havana, claims to to be the birthplace of the drink. The bar was also frequented by author Ernest Hemingway.

During the record-breaking event at the bar, a crowd sang Cuba's version of "Happy Birthday" for the writer, whose 113th birthday was on Saturday.
