You Can Now Chug Fireball Straight Out Of A Box

People have been able to drink cheap wine out of a box for years, so why not do the same with cheap whisky?

Fans of Fireball can rejoice, as they now have something called “Firebox” which contains two 1.75 pouches of the popular whisky within.

There’s also a tap on each side, which means you can race your friends, like this…

… or just just pour it into a glass like a decent human being, but, why?

The box’s suggested retail price is $61.99, but has been spotted at Walmart for as low as $25. Either way, when checking both stores, they’re out of stock, unfortunately.

Idgaf that shitty alcohol is going into my body” demographic.

This Fireball S’mores Shot Brings The Campfire Straight To You

As a society, and especially as of late, we’ve been trying to find ways to make our alcohol sweeter (Fireball Whiskey, Pinnacle Cotton Candy Vodka, etc.). Well, human ingenuity and the desire to get drunk have joined forces again with this newest creation, the Fireball S’mores shot.

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 1.14.55 PM

The sweet drinkers over at Delish have made it clear that this shot will incite vivid daydreams of nostalgic childhood memories spent around campfires, bonfires, brushfires, virtually anything that ends in fire. Hell, one whiff of this could convince soldiers on opposing sides to end the crossfire and have a drink together during the ceasefire!

The shot is made by caking the rim of the shotglass with melted marshmallows or a marshmallow cream, then you “salt” the rim with crushed up graham crackers. Finally, the actual shot itself is created by blending two parts chocolate liqueur, one part vanilla Schnapp’s, then the most intriguing part of the shot, the Fireball whiskey.

Of course, this shot is one of those “drink it because it tastes fun” shots, not a “drink it to get drunk” shot. Still, sometimes having fun is more important than getting drunk. Sometimes.

You can find the exact recipe for the shot here.

Watch These Cute Grandmas Try Fireball Whisky For The First Time

fireball-screenshot

*cough cough* — that’s the reaction that goes through my throat, down into my belly, and then into my veins everytime I’m downing shots of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky. I hate myself, I hate my friends who offered me the shot and I often wonder what my grandma would think if she saw me putting down liquid poison that I didn’t even find tasty.

Luckily, a YouTube video resurfaced recently that showcases a room full of cute innocent grandmas trying the fiery cinnamon whiskey for the first time.

“Tastes like heaven, burns like hell,” — “I like cinnamon, but I don’t know about the burning like hell part.”

The sketchiness of the video unfolds as a bottle of the cinnamon whisky gets put on the table shortly after the grandmas get asked what their current drinking life consists of. We quickly learn that some of the grandmas don’t drink much anymore, some prefer “Zinfandel” but for the most part, they seem like open and curious ladies.

The ladies proceed to examine every part of the Fireball bottle, from label and presentation, to taste and aftertaste:

There’s something particularly charming about watching Grandmas who’ve lived such long lives and seen so much get to try something for the first time, ever. I mean, one of my favorite stories of last year is when a grandma discovered there was cocaine in her granola bar.

My question to the Internet remains, “What should grandmas try next?!”

These Caramel Apple Fireball Shots Just Climbed To The Top Of My Christmas List

Caramel-Apple-Fireball-Shots-OBI

In the spirit of the holiday, Oh Bite It! created a caramel apple recipe to get us ready for some good old-fashioned holiday drinking. These Caramel Apple Fireball Shots definitely have us pumped to start our vacation.

What you’ll need are two large apples, about 40 small pieces of caramel, a 1/4 cup of (optional) liquid pectin and a cup of Fireball Whiskey.

Throw the caramel and Fireball into a double boiler and let it all melt completely. Then, add the liquid pectin to give the mixture a firmness.

Cut the apples in half and core them. Leave enough so that the halves are sturdy enough to hold the caramel mixture. Pour the melted caramel into the carved out holes in the apple halves. Fill it to the edges, but make sure it doesn’t overflow.

Pop the apples in the fridge for two hours so that the caramel hardens. Once they’re ready, you can slice them up and serve.

Fireball Whisky Pulled from Shelves Due to Excess Antifreeze

Fireball-Whiskey-Recall

A number of European countries are removing Fireball Whisky bottles from their shelves. Thanks to an excess of propylene glycol, a type of antifreeze that acts as a stabilizer in foods and prevents evaporation, European fans of Fireball Whisky will not be seeing the bottles in stores anytime soon.

The removal is due to the whisky not meeting the European Union’s standards on propylene glycol. While the US has exactly the same amount in its Fireball Whisky, it appears Europe’s standards are a bit tighter than those in the US.

Fox News reports that the US Food and Drug Administration classifies propylene glycol as a “generally recognized as safe” additive for use in consumer products. This includes food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and animal feed.

Since the announcement, Fireball has state on their Facebook page:

We’re here to set the record straight. Fireball is safe to drink. Period. The end.

Finland, Sweden and Norway are among the European countries removing the whisky.
