No firepit? No problem. Especially if you live near a Five Below. The discount retailer is now selling a Tabletop Fire Pit that makes it easy to transform your outdoor patio into the ideal spot to hang out around a fire and cook s’mores this summer. And the best part? This item is only $5.

This Tabletop Fire Pit is incredibly easy to use. First, it’s important to note that this pit should always be used outdoors. To set it up, clear the space around the table and place your firepit in the center. Carefully pour rubbing alcohol in the center, then light it with a long utility lighter. The Tabletop Fire Pit will light and burn until the alcohol runs out. The best kind of rubbing alcohol for this Tabletop Fire Pit is a 91% proof, which will last much longer than a 70% or something smaller. If you plan on walking away from the firepit before the alcohol runs out, be sure to snuff it out so you don’t leave an open flame. The firepit will also get hot while it’s burning, so make sure to have it placed on top of a protective material, and far out of reach from children and pets.

With a cute mini Tabletop Fire Pit such as this, your summer parties are about to become an absolute hit. While the item isn’t sold online, there’s a similar one on Amazon that we’ve tested and reviewed here. It’s obviously going to cost more than Five Below’s version, but you’ll save yourself a trip — and possibly the disappointment if your store’s out of stock.

We’re already dreaming up a giant s’mores party now that guests can toast their marshmallows over an open flame. Firepit nights aren’t the same without a cocktail in hand, especially something with a warming liquor like this frozen peach bourbon mule or this summer sage with rye whiskey.
