“Hakuna Moscato. It means drink wine”

"Hakuna Moscato. It means drink more wine” is a jocular wine saying that has been printed on many images.  “Hakuna matata” is Swahili for “no worries.” The song “Hakuna Matata” was in the Disney animated movie The Lion King (1995).

“Hakuna-mata? no, hakuna-moscato” was posted on Twitter on March 11, 2010. “Hakuna moscato. It means no memories for the rest of your day” was posted on Twitter by F*ck Men Get Moscato on January 29, 2014. “Hakuna Moscato. It means no worries for...at least the rest of the bottle” was posted on Twitter by Hot Mess Express on February 24, 2014.

“Hakuna Moscato: it means drink wine” was posted on Twitter by Sam on January 30, 2015. This popular version of the saying probably came from an image.

Other “Hakuna matata” jokes include “Hakuna Fermata. It means keep playing for the rest of your days,” “Hakuna Ma’Coffee. It means no worries. I’ll just drink coffee for the rest of the day,” “Hakuna Ma’Vodka. It means no memories” and “Hakuna Mimosa. It means it’s brunchtime.” “What did Simba (The Lion King) order for brunch?"/"A tuna frittata” is a related joke.


Wikipedia: Hakuna matata
“Hakuna matata” is a Swahili phrase; translated, it roughly means “No worries”. It is formed by the words hakuna (there is not here) and matata (plural form of problem). The phrase has been popularized by its use in The Lion King (in which it is translated as “no worries” in a song named after the phrase), so that it is heard often at resorts, hotels, and other places appealing to the tourist trade. The phrase is in more common use in Zanzibar and Kenya. The phrase is uncommon among native speakers of Swahili in Tanzania, who prefer the phrase “hamna shida” in the north and “hamna tabu” in the south.

Wikipedia: Moscato D’Asti
Moscato d’Asti is a DOCG sparkling white wine produced mainly in the province of Asti, northwest Italy, and in smaller nearby regions in the provinces of Alessandria and Cuneo. The wine is sweet and low in alcohol, and is considered a dessert wine. It is from the Moscato bianco grape. A related wine, Asti, is produced in the same area from the same grape.
