The guest of honor at George Clooney's wedding? Tequila
One guest we know for sure will be very present at George Clooney's upcoming wedding? Tequila. Seriously, all of the tequila.
As it turns out, the groom-to-be has a good buddy in the tequila biz: Rande Gerber, who founded Casamigos Tequila. People reports that Clooney and his fiancée, British human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, are good friends of Gerber and his wife, model Cindy Crawford. The pair of couples spent the holiday season together in Los Cabos, Mexico, last year and, when Clooney and Alamuddin officially decided to tie the knot, they celebrated their engagement with a party at Cafe Habana, a business owned by Gerber in Malibu.
And now, People also reports that Gerber is helping Clooney and Alamuddin prepare for the big day — by reportedly loading 100 cases of his award-winning blanco, reposado and añejo tequila onto a jet bound for Italy, where the wedding will take place. Yes, you read that right. One hundred cases. One. Hundred. Cases.
Need a little perspective on just how much booze will be taking part in the Clooney-Alamuddin wedding? There are 12 bottles of tequila in each of those 100 cases. That means 1,200 bottles of tequila will be at that wedding. Even if Clooney and Alamuddin celebrate their big day with more than 1,000 guests, each of those guests will have his or her own personal bottle of tequila.
And this isn't cheap tequila, either.
Oh, and in case you wondered (because I did), a bottle of tequila will make about 15 margaritas. A little math shows us that the Clooney-Alamuddin wedding will have the potential to produce 18,000 margaritas. You know, just in case you didn't think it's going to be one hell of a party.
And for any potential guests who wondered what might make a good gift for the happy couple? They probably don't need tequila.
