When Should You Start Writing Your College Essay?

Let's be frank: there's never an ideal moment to craft college essays. At best, there are times that are somewhat less unfavorable. Why is...

The hottest drink of them all

Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey was on fire this past weekend.

Saturday night, Fort Collins bars shared their top three alcoholic products sold over the weekend.


The Yeti Bar and Grill said they were most frequently asked for Long Island Iced Teas (vodka, gin, tequila and rum), Adios Mo Fo’s (gin, rum, tequila, vodka, sweet and sour, Sprite and Blue Curacao liqueur) and shots of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey.

According to The Drunken Monkey Cantina, their Long Islands, Adios Mo Fo’s and Fireball shots also saw their biggest sales, which came as no surprise because they specialize in their Long Islands and Adios Mo Fo’s.

Washington’s Sports Bar and Grill’s $4 Long Islands were most attractive to their customers and so were their Fireball shots. Unlike The Drunken Monkey and The Yeti, their shots of Washington Apple (whiskey, Sour Apple Pucker and cranberry juice) sold well.

According to Lucky Joe’s Sidewalk Saloon, their Fireball shots were lucrative as well, but they distinguished themselves from the crowd with their draft beer and Irish Car Bomb beer cocktails that consist of Irish stout, Irish cream and Irish whiskey.

The Crown Pub sold a ton of the Moscow mule (vodka, ginger beer and lime), Guinness beer and the “snuggler.” This concoction is a mixture of hot chocolate, liqueur and whipped cream.

Fireball was the clear winner this weekend and it is sure to continue to burn brightly.
