The festival is three days of mixing, shaking, creating, drinking, tasting and sipping on some of Uganda Waragi’s finest cocktails.
Uganda Waragi continues to revolutionize the cocktail culture in Uganda and will be hosting the three-phase event as a celebration of the fast-growing vibrant cocktail scene.
Speaking during the launch, Uganda Waragi Brand Manager, Agaba Tumusiime said, “Kampala has a really exciting cocktail scene and we are excited to be celebrating the country’s first cocktail festival. Pina Colada Weekend is the ultimate party for cocktail lovers and is the perfect way to celebrate all that is great about our favorite Uganda Waragi brands with friends and family. We have an exciting jam-packed programme of unmissable events and discount drinks that are guaranteed to have cocktail lovers licking their lips.”
He further noted that the 3-day celebration will feature a range of exciting activities for participating outlets and consumers who would be encouraged to mix their own cocktails and enjoy their favorite Uganda Waragi flavors better.
The Pina Colada cocktail, after which the event has been named is a sweet mix of both Coconut juice and Pineapple rum, and is often served blended or shaken with ice. Uganda Waragi’s coconut and pineapple flavors lend themselves perfectly to cocktails and will take centre stage at the festival.
The festival is expected to bring together some of Uganda’s leading bartenders, mixologists, and cocktail enthusiasts.

To many, Zari Hassan has morphed into more than just a socialite over the years, and is now a role model young Ugandan and Tanzanian girls, and Africans in general; look at for inspiration.
The 40-year-old self-proclaimed Boss Lady, who is a mother of 5, and philanthropic entrepreneur; shocked her millions of followers when she groped a male mannequin’s groins, said vulgar things, and posted on her Instagram story for everyone to watch.
“Cause he doesn’t have a dick, Norma.” Said an exuberant Zari, to her girlfriend who constantly asked her what she was doing.
On further questioning on why she was pulling its genitalia by a clearly entertained Norma, Diamond Platnumz’ ex answered in an even more cringeworthy fashion, as she viciously told the statue, “Better have some dick, Nigger.”
You could say it was nothing serious, but in all honesty, such dry humor does not become of some individuals.
Pallaso warms up DNA lounge with live performance
By Our Reporter
DNA Lounge in Kololo was the scene of mass enjoyment on Saturday when Pallaso and his live band took the stage for the Bell Jamz Listeners Experience.
The evening got off to a slow start on account of the rain, but the venue was packed by 10 pm as Team Good Music and Leone Island warmed the stage right before Pallaso delivered an electrifying performance of all his hits.
A surprise guest performance from songstress Spice Diana ensured the crowd kept on their feet as the mood was set for an evening of dancing.
During the performance, Pallaso reflected on some of his struggles before achieving success including spending time in prison as well as a particularly depressing period in 2017 after his “Soma” show at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds received an extremely low turn out.
The evening was made extra special as a result of the presence of Pallaso’s mother. Pallaso gave a hearty tribute to his mother with the song Mama, which he used to urge the emotional crowd to appreciate their mothers.
The Bell Jamz Listeners Experience was launched in 2019 as a musical experience that features a Ugandan artist performing all their hits with a live band. This was the third edition, with the first being headlined by Beenie Gunter followed by Voltage Music duo, Kent and Flosso.
