The Joseph Kony Cocktail via Tipsy Bartender

Good morning, people! Wow, I am up early as hell posting! LOLOLOL. At any rate, just wanted to post this up because I think this is a rather significant issue. As we all know, Africa as a whole has not been the most stable continent. There's always some kind of stress from a political, war or social issue. It's always good to be aware of political stuff when it counts. These types of things shouldn't really surprise you as there are other countries with even more severe issues than this. The point is to remember that the world is never perfect, and we should always give when we can. Basically, if you haven't figured it out by now, there's a viral video posted from the Invisible Children called Kony 2012. Joseph Kony is a dictator out of Uganda that's been doing some really horrible things with an organization called the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

There's a lot of speculation that this movement might be a bit of a fraud now, or the money donated is making a governing body or some people rich. However, it's always good to stay abreasted to the situation. I mean, this is for real. No matter how you slice it, a lot of these people are under tremendous turmoil by a group that has total disregard for the peoples' well being. Now, we shall get into the cocktail:

1oz Skyy Citrus Vodka
1oz Ciroc Peach
1 1/2oz Pineapple Juice
1 1/2oz Cranberry Juice

Shoutout to Sky John for coming up with something a little creative and political without being to preachy. Big ups to the Tipsy Bartender himself! For those that don't know what this movement is about, check out the video below the actual drink vid. Thanks! Peace!

OH! BEFORE I FORGET, check out this movie called "Bouncing Cats". This is from a while ago, but Crazy Legs and Y-Not from the Rock Steady Crew basically spread Hip-Hop love in Uganda. It's just to show we've been about this thing for quite sometime. Peep the trailer below:
