Taking shots is familiar territory for younger generations, but YouTube channel Nerdwire proved that grandmas can also have a good time when alcohol is thrown into the mix.
The YouTube channel found four sweet and adorable grandmothers, put them into teams of 2, threw some Fireball Whisky into the mix and the result is hilarious! Online, Fireball Whisky promises taking a swig is equivalent to coming “face-to-face with a fire-breathing dragon who just ate a whiskey barrel full of spicy cinnamon.”
But these grandmothers prove they’re no stranger to enjoying some spirits back in their day… or even now. During the taste testing, one grandmother in the first pairing admits, “I probably have something to drink every day, ’cause I like a glass of wine. But harder drinks, it’s usually in a party mood, going out to dinner. It’s part of my life, for sure.”
Her drinking partner says, “Been to a lot of exciting parties. During the Olympics, I invited the entire Spanish yachting team to a big party in the backyard. That was very fun. Spaniards, you know.” The mischievous look on these grandmother’s faces says it all. It’s obvious this pairing is no stranger to a good time! The second pair of grandmothers, however, admit they’re not as adventurous. “I don’t drink that much. I used to drink a lot,” one of the grandmas admits. “But I guess sometimes holidays and stuff, a little drink here and there, but not excessive drinking.”
Now for the best part: the grandmas are given the Fireball whiskey! The second pair with less alcohol experience was off to a rocky start as they had some difficulty reading the label (one of them forgot their glasses).
The grandmother who remembered her glasses reads, “Fiery kick of red hot cinnamon. Oooh. Tastes like heaven, burns like hell.” These drinking partners seemed a little concerned at the part that promises the whiskey will “burn like hell.”
They fill their shot glasses anyway, about halfway or so, compare whose shot glass is more full, say cheers and down the glass!
