Grandmas are often beloved for their ability to teach the younger generations about life. Especially when it comes to eating and drinking, we can normally assume that our grandmas might have a bit more experience. They tend to know the really good recipes and best drinks.

That being said, new things to try are being invented all the time. You might love something that your grandmother has never heard of, for example: Fireball. But wouldn’t you love to get your beloved grandma to try the fiery liquor?

There’s a viral video that shows a group of grandmas all trying Fireball Whisky for the first time.

In a video from Obsev, four grandmothers take their very first shots and sips of Fireball whiskey. It’s pretty hilarious to see their reactions, especially before they even taste it. As they check out the bottle and all admit that they don’t drink much anymore, seeing Fireball seems to remind them of their earlier partying days.

It makes a lot of sense that these ladies have never had Fireball.

Fireball was invented in 1984, so it’s safe to say that these grandmas have really never had it before! Its sugary contents and high alcohol level make it a drink that appeals to younger people, although it does show up in cocktails from time to time.

They didn’t quite know what to make of Fireball’s unique taste.

One of the grandma’s summed up the flavor like this:

“It kinda tastes like a medicine type thing. Like a cinnamon hot medicine going down.”

After the initial shock, however, they all started to warm up to the drink.

The ladies ended up quite enjoying it.

After taking a taste of the Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, one of the ladies’ faces lit up, and she exclaimed:

“I could get to like this!”

The other women at the table agreed with her. It took some getting used to, but they agreed it was a tasty drink.

Eventually, having some Fireball loosened the ladies up.

After a few shots of Fireball, some of the grandmas were feeling good enough to crack jokes. A bunch of them were fascinated by Fireball’s tagline: “Ignite the night.” One of the women even joked:

“‘Ignite the night’…I don’t even have a date…what a waste.”

The internet now loves all these grandmas.

It’s fun to watch older women have fun and try something that normally seems reserved for millennials and other young people. The video is filled with comments either identifying with the grandmas or cheering them on. It seems like every viewer has their own favorite grandma from this video.

One person wrote:

“Okay, now I want to see the lady in the purple drink with the lady with the glasses who poured the huge shots.”

Someone else commented:

“I absolutely love the lady who is really elegant in the black. But you know when the sun goes down she’s a party animal! Would love to see more of her!!”

The funniest part of these reactions is that despite how many people loved watching the grandmas drink, many people felt like they might not be able to keep up with the women!

It’s fun to see these women enjoying themselves and having a blast trying something new.

You don’t typically see your grandparents trying many new things, and especially a drink like this. It’s cute to see grandmas find something that could become a new favorite!

Additionally, since these ladies have probably tried a lot of things in their lives, it’s funny to see that Fireball gets their seal of approval. Imagine all the foods and drinks these women have had in their lifetimes, and yet they all still agree that Fireball Cinnamon Whisky is fun and delicious. In my eyes, that means that the liquor is now a certified classic.

Watch the whole video below for the grandma’s hilarious reactions!
