I Tried Barney Stinson's Hangover Fixer Elixir From "HIMYM" So You Don't Have To

Move over, Bloody Mary.

Posted on

Fed up with coconut water and Motrin, I recently turned to an unlikely source after a night of too much red wine: Barney Stinson's Hangover Fixer Elixir from "How I Met Your Mother."

The gag-worthy concoction is what Barney Stinson gives to all of his friends when they're going through their worst hangovers. The "cure" is made up of Tantrum, which is a fictional Mountain Dew-esque energy drink, bananas, Funyuns, ginger, grease, and a ~secret~ ingredient. As fans now know, there is no secret ingredient — Barney said there was one simply to keep the hope alive that there is something in this world that can cure a hangover.Seeing as how I was hungover enough to need a solution but not so hungover that I couldn't manage to make something, I decided to make Barney's signature drink.

Seeing as how I was hungover enough to need a solution but not so hungover that I couldn't manage to make something, I decided to make Barney's signature drink.

First, I gathered all of the ingredients I would need.

Then, I added the banana...

...the bacon grease...

...and some Mountain Dew Kickstart to a blender.

And then I stared at it perplexingly.

Finally, I turned on the blender and mixed it together.

And I blew in some "I hope my headache goes away" for good measure.

It was time to take a sip.

It was unbelievably gross — and kind of spicy.

My conclusion: Even though it was really chunky and made me want to puke everywhere...

...Stinson's Hangover Fixer Elixir would look great on a brunch menu.
