For years, the Route 44® has been the iconic drink size from SONIC Drive-In that brings a good time no matter the occasion. But what about those times you need a little more?

SONIC recently sent some of the brand’s top fans on TikTok a giant 444-ounce version of the famous SONIC Route 44® cup and asked them what they would do with 444 ounces of their favorite SONIC drink. With each custom oversized cup standing over 3-feet tall and holding TEN times the amount of liquid as a SONIC Route 44® cup, the opportunities for creating their own SONIC oasis were endless!

This is how some of TikTok’s top stars used the SONIC Route 444*:
