How many shots of tequila can one billion dollars buy? George Clooney can possibly get a round for every person of legal drinking age in the United States after his tequila company, Casamigos, was sold to spirits giant Diageo in a deal that could be worth as much as $1 billion, reports CNBC. Co-owners Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman benefit from this windfall as well.

But does this mean Clooney and his partners will ride off into an agave sunset? Hardly. Clooney says, “We’ll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two.”
