You wish your grandma was this cool.

When 79-year-old Muriel Munoz learned from her grandchildren what a keg stand was, she decided she had to  try it. 

The next day, at a graduation party for her grandson, she tested out her keg-stand skills, with some help from her family.

The North Texas woman is now a viral sensation in Texas after her granddaughter, Madison Munoz, documented the whole thing on Twitter and Snapchat.

Madison, a 20-year-old Texas A&M student, told Buzzfeed that she wasn’t surprised her grandma wanted to join in on the party.

"She's always been the type of grandma to hang out with all of the grandkids and make us laugh.”

"All of us were egging her on and she was excited to try it," Munoz told Buzzfeed. "She's 79-years-old, so we were super careful when we were holding her up and she went for a few seconds and took it like a champ."

Later, Madison’s uncle got in on the action, too.

Since Madison tweeted the keg stand photos, her initial tweet has been favorited more than 12,000 times.

Online reactions to Grandma Muriel’s awesomeness have been overwhelmingly positive, with many people tweeting that they want to be like her when they are older.

And don’t worry- no underage drinking was performed at the party.
