What is uganda knuckles?
Ugandan Knuckles is a meme that originated from an episode of the popular TV show Rick and Morty, created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. It depicts an alcoholic beverage originating from Uganda.
It turns out that “Kni’kle-em” was either a typo or slang for “Uncle Bob’s Kneedleberry.” In any case, it took off like wildfire, much to the amusement of my fellow Adult Swim colleagues. I still can’t believe this became such a huge internet thing! And then there are the people who now think it’s spelled “Knucks”, which just means they don’t know how to type. To them I say, please educate yourselves!
The drink itself is made with a mixture of alcohols and a few additives. After being heated in a microwave, the drink will go from a dullish red color to a easily recognizable bright red, orange color. At this stage, the vodka has stopped simmering and becomes drinkable.
Ugandan Dragons are meant to be a strong version of the drink, but there’s no real recipe for it… yet. But we’ll get to that.
