Passing around a bottle of Fireball outside a venue before you go in to buy expensive drinks is a right of passage. Actually passing around a bottle of Fireball anywhere while drinking is usually a good idea.

The fact remains that Fireball seems to be the go to for turning the heat up on a party.
But have you ever thought of trying something else? Not shots of Crown, or Jack, or Absolut…save that for your 16 year old self. Believe it or not, there are other concoctions that’ll not only do when there’s no Fireball around, but according to Thrillist and their bartender buddies, there are bottles out there that will get you off the Fireball for good.
