    It's quite popular but I can't believe so many people like it. Do you actually like it or just tolerate it because it's so popular? Here's something I wrote on my blog about it. Feel free to tear it apart. http://wp.me/p40HsG-65

    I don't care for it at all. I think many may like it because it's the latest fad.
    What's even better are the honey whiskey's. American Honey by Wild Turkey is by far the best. It's scary how smooth it is.

    That's interesting. In my drinking experience it's gender neutral. I didn't think of that angle

    it's 80% that angle at clubs with young women, the guys drink it to keep the girls drinking more

    oh BTW 80 proof isn't 45% ABV, "proofread" it, LOL see what I did there?

    I used to drink this crap in high school, but haven't had an urge to buy it since. With that said, when I was in Vegas in March a buddy of mine loves it and bought / got us comp fireball shots a few times. I'll drink it but it's not my first choice

    I have friends who drink it, but I think it's gross. Anyway, I'm way too old for shots.

    It tastes like big red chewing gum to me. I find it very strange to drink.

    I've been drinking this stuff for years. Usually no good comes from it. Are they charging outrageous prices for it now? It's always comped so I don't care what they are charging although one bartender tried to tell me it was $21 for two shots of it at NYNY while we were playing bar tops. I started to complain when another bartender told him to comp it. Hmmmm....$21 for two shots....perhaps I just answered my outrageous price question....... Are they trying to charge more in the clubs right now than that???

    I don't know if it's a gender thing. Either you like it or you don't. I love the little cinnamon hearts at Valentine's, and I love Captain Morgan's Spiced but I don't like Fireball. I have it in my bar because a friend gave it to me. I think it's fine as a cocktail ingredient. It probably makes a good hot toddy now that I think of it. But, I wouldn't sit there and drink it or do shots of it. My husband likes the really spicy spiced rum and spiced whiskeys and he doesn't like it either.

    yep, I prefer to sip my drinks

    but the shot slamming mentality reminds me of this "old" movie

    I think it is delicious. Like big red. Perfect for a last shot of the night, that or Rumple Minze will freshen your breath for post bar activities :wink2:

    No, it's pretty cheap and usually on special. Bars make a killing off it even on sale. (Like most booze)

    A little sweet for me, friend. Surprised it's not too "spicy". First time I had it I didn't mind it, but I don't get it... Jameson is just fine for me *cheers*

    It's the "chick drink", so of course the guys buy it..
    I remember when it was BIG in San Diego a few years back...every time a firetruck siren went off, fireball shots were $1.
    My wife loves it (obviously)...if I'm doing a shot, it's going to be a bomb. (Irish Car Bomb or Jaeger Bomb)
