Tulsa Chik-Fil-A Sets World Record

A Tulsa Chik-Fil-A restaurant squeezes out a new Guinness world record.

Workers and volunteers at the 71st and Garnett location made a whopping 839 gallons of fresh-squeezed lemonade.

The drink required 1,050 pounds of sugar, 580 gallons of water, 250 pounds of ice and 11,730 lemons.

A Guinness book representative was there to make it the official largest cup of soft drink in the world.

Mayor Kathy Taylor also helped to make the record-setting beverage.

Smaller cups of the batch will be available at Sunkist Take A Stand lemonade stands throughout the city benefiting Tulsa's Little Light House.

So far, more than $10,000 has been raised.

The old record was a 611-gallon glass of orange juice whipped-up by the Florida Department of Citrus back in 1998.
