Not everyone can party like Dennis Rodman (or his "friend for life", North Korea's Kim Jong Un) but the former Chicago Bulls star hopes his new "bad ass" premium vodka will bring about the party and world peace.

Thursday, the 52-year-old hoops champ debuted Rodman Vodka, a "six times distilled all-American premium vodka (that Rodman will also remind you is "bad ass"). The brand appears to be a pivot from Rodman's previously-announced "Bad Boy" vodka.

Rodman, who made waves this past year with his multiple visits to North Korea and cozy relationship its basketball-loving leader, feels his new Bull-emblazoned liquor could play a role ushering in peace talks between the U.S. and the totalitarian state.

"Everyone knows [President Barack] Obama drinks beer," Rodman said according to the Associated Press. "But you know what? I'm pretty sure he does have a cocktail here or there. I'd love to see him with a 'Bad Ass Vodka' shot in his hand, toasting to Kim Jong [Un] and me. That would be awesome."

Rodman insists North Koreans "love a lot about America" and that he's just the man to help the two nations find common ground.

"Just think, it's up to Dennis Rodman to break ground with North Korea."

As of Friday, the vodka only appeared to be available at Kenwood Liquors in Chicago for one day only. According to a release, Wirtz Beverage Group is distributing the spirit which is expected to hit Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Atlantic City and other locations nationwide soon.
