The weather outside may be frightful but Fireball is so delightful. Why not ignite the holidays with a few cocktails from yours truly? We ventured to the hottest corners of the earth, tracked down infamous pyromaniacs and together worked feverishly to develop drinks capable of roasting your chestnuts. So when Campbell’s soup can’t quite warm you up, leave it to one of our very own holiday drinks. Cheers!

As part of our continuing “Ignite the Night” summer tour, we’re hitting Los Angeles this weekend for X Games Seventeen. Richard and Allison will be taking the city of angels by storm during the day and in the evenings after the events and you’ll be able to find them outside the city, bar hopping near the beaches, passing out free shots and swag! Friend us on Foursquare to find out exactly where we’re going to be and when: www.foursquare.com/fireballwhisky.

Last month saw the reboot of one of the biggest video game franchises of all time when Mortal Kombat launched to the rejoicing of hardcore and casual fans alike as they snuck out of work early and lined up outside of Gamestops across America. Even if you can’t tell the difference between Scorpion and Sub-Zero, you can still appreciate the sheer joy that results from ripping the spine out of your best friend’s avatar in all its high-def glory.
If none of this makes any sense to you, watch this:
Mortal Kombat was one of the biggest pop-culture explosions of the 90s having spawned countless video games sequels, two big screen movies, two TV shows, comic books, action figures, lunch boxes, flame throwers….you get the point. Anyone near my age demographic will recall countless hours spent in front of the TV as a child mastering button combinations to pull off the perfect Fatality and utterly humiliate (and impress) your friends. These were the days before XBOX Live, headsets, and Wi-fi gaming. When you wanted to play video games with your friends, you had to be in the same room at the same.
What does any of this have to do with Fireball Whisky you ask? Well now that we’re all of legal age with the ability to purchase alcohol and video games that our parents don’t approve of, I urge you to join me in my crusade to make video games social again. Turn off the headsets, put away the Call of Duty, make some drinks, and invite your friends over for some classic arcade action in your living room. Hell, invite the girls over too. Some of them will enjoy this for upwards of 30 minutes (please note the heavy sarcasm in this statement)!
As you pummel each other into oblivion with a bottle of Fireball Whisky at your side, up the stakes with this friendly competition…
MORTAL KOMBAT + FIREBALL WHISKY =
- The loser of each match takes a shot.
- Two if defeated with a Fatality.
- Three if defeated with a Fatality and a Flawless Victory.
- Both players take a shot when a “Toasty!” occurs but neither is allowed to pause the game.
Enjoy the mayhem and let me know if you make any modifications to the rules above. Cheers!
