Three cocktails to celebrate the "How I Met Your Mother' finale

See also

How I met your mother has been a CBS staple for the past 9 seasons, and in seven short days the series will come to an end, and hopefully some answers will be brought to light.

‘How I met your mother’ revolves around main character Ted Mosby as he narrates the story of how he met his wife to his teenage children.

While living in New York City - working as an architect, the narrator tells stories of his closest friends couple Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin; the eccentric, womanizer-playboy Barney Stinson and news anchor Robin Scherbatsky. The series see the sights of these characters lives which includes the love triangle between Robin, Ted, and Barney; Marshall and Lily's relationship; and of course the carriers of the principals.

There is one episode left, so “Suit up” grab your blue French horn and yellow umbrella, because I am a about to present to you three cocktails worthy of Barney’s blog.
