The empty Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas.


This is an empty bottle of Sunset Sarsaparilla. Visibly it is differentiated from a full Sunset Sarsaparilla by the lack of a cap and having a lighter orangish color.

Five variants of this item exist:

  • A "standard" version found in numerous locations throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
  • A special variant found only in a truck submerged in Lake Mead that only differs in that it does not float in water.
  • A version simply called "Sunset Sarsaparilla Bottle" that can't be picked up.
  • A version is what the Courier uses for target practice in the quest Back in the Saddle.
  • A mini version that can be found in the Sunset Sarsaparilla Headquarters behind a very hard locked door.

There are no special uses for this item (any versions) without add-ons, as it is not used in any quests. In the Honest Hearts add-on, it is the required component for brewing Homebrewed Sunset Sarsaparilla. Note that the variant that is found submerged in Lake Mead does not work for the recipe. Its low weight-to-value ratio makes it impractical for being sold for profit.

With the Old World Blues add-on, the player can use Sink to refill empty bottles and turn them into purified water.


Numerous empty Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle can be found throughout the Mojave Wasteland, appearing in virtually all major areas of the game—either in-world or located inside containers. However, no merchants sell the item, and it is not carried by any non-player characters.

A total of 1000 bottles can be found in the world, not counting items found inside containers or the "no float" variant. While it is impractical to list every location they appear, the following is a list of areas with a high number of empty Sunset Sarsaparilla bottles:
