I’ve always been a believer that it doesn’t matter how much you drink, how much you mix, how much water you pace the evening imbibing out with, what kind of greasy food you ingest at the end of it all…drink too much, get a nasty hangover.
With that…I was recently invited to a new product launch event at New West Distributing, one of a few booze distributors here in Nevada. One of the first booths on site was the Magic Bullet booth which promised a ‘hangover eraser’ elixir at their table. Being one who sometimes over does it, I said ‘sure- I’ll try anything once’. My review is below.
Listen, I’ll be the first to call BS on something, especially a product that makes such claims as the Magic Bullet of providing a drink that you can actually use as a mixer with your vodka, bourbon or rum that has a unique blend of ingredients that ‘supposedly’ keeps the hangover at bay…and especially when this ‘elixir’ comes with a fairly hefty price tag of $3.99 to $4.99 each. Alas, a fairly small price to pay for the promise of no hangover the next day!
Behind the booth was Joe. Joe is the kind of guy you just want to be on your side when you are on a mission of demolition (the liver is evil and must be punished- ha!). He had all the right answers to my questions and was cool to boot!
The million dollar question: DOES IT WORK? Well, if you drank 4 Wild Turkey 101 & Dr. Pepper’s, 2 tequila shots, 1 beer and 3 glasses of wine and a large Bloody Mary built in a 2 to 1 fashion (vodka to mix) in a sitting…would YOU be hungover? Well, the next morning, not only was I not hung over, but I woke up at 7:30 a.m., much earlier than typically for a Saturday morning! BTW- I drank 1.5 Magic Bullet over the span of the night.
Frankly, I’m not much for making wholesale decisions on just one test, so more testing is necessary for full evaluation, but the initial results are intriguing. http://www.drinkmagicbullet.com for more info.
