What does the world's biggest bloody mary bar look like?

Well, the Happy Gnome in St. Paul practiced trying to break the world record for the largest build-your-own bloody mary bar on Sunday, with 65 different meats, cheeses, and other items people could use to garnish their bloody mary.

The bar will attempt to break the record for real next year. Currently the Silver Grill Cafe in Fort Collins, Colorado, holds the World Record Academy record for biggest bloody mary bar with 45 garnishes.

Here's what the Happy Gnome's bloody mary bar looked like on Sunday:

Start with your pepper-rimmed glass.

Choose your bloody mixture.

Now it's time for the toppings. There were tons of options.

Including cheeses and fried goodies.

And a bunch of pickled veggies.

Don't forget your beer chaser.

Put it all together, and this is the finished product. Cheers!

If this was just for practice, we can't wait to see what the real thing is like.
