When it's hot out, the thirst-quenching beverage of choice in certain parts of the country is sweet tea, and a Chik-Fil-A in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma proved their dedication to the drink by creating the world's largest cup of it. Guinness World Records officials verified that the cup, which was nine feet tall and held over 1,140 gallons, was, in fact, the record holder. The drink took 72 pounds of tea leaves, 1,150 pounds of sugar, one ton of ice, and 912 gallons of water to make. That's a heavy beverage; hope they had a giant straw, too.
