Have you noticed how simply standing outside right now without drowning in your own sweat counts as a major accomplishment? Us too. So it must be time for some middle of the summer parties. And if it’s time for parties, it must also be time for Fireball. Thanks to some well done marketing and a devoted fan base, the cinnamon whiskey continues to be one of the most popular liquors in the United States, besting behemoths like Jim Beam and Jose Cuervo in sales. And Fireball manages to keep its fans from getting bored with an ever-growing lineup of different packages for its whiskey. It comes by the handle, by the box and now, for those looking to hand out mini bottles to all their friends, by the bucket.

The Fireball Party Bucket is a foreboding looking black bucket full of 20 50-milliliter nips. It’s the cleanest and easiest way to hand out a round of Fireball shots. You can order it online from Think Liquor for $29, which, as Delish points out, is a bit more than you’d likely pay for the same amount of Fireball in a one liter bottle. But who can put a price on presentation? You can also find it on shelves in a number of stores like Wegman’s and Shoprite in states where liquor can be sold in grocery stores.
If you’re a real Fire breather (Fire head? Member of the ‘Ball army? What do you call yourselves?) then you may already know about the party bucket. There’s been evidence of it out in the wild for some time now.
But whether it’s new to you or not, if you’re into Fireball you’ll want to stock up on some buckets. You never know when you’ll be in need of a few extra nips.
