Alright Tumblr! Let’s do this right this time! These are my original Disney themed cocktails! All drinks were made up, and I did not copy any existing material. Expect a part 2 in the near future! Please feel free to check out & support my Bartending Facebook page at Cocktails by Cody. Thanks! Now let’s get drunk off our childhood!

Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model?
marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there
and let’s not forget this
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.
"She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it." - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe
Charlotte. My new hero. Girl people need adventures too.
"My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love Legos but I don’t like that there are more lego boy people and barely any Lego girls. Today I went to a store and saw Legos in two sections. The pink (girls) and blue (boys). All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks. I want you to make more lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun, ok!?! Thank you. From Charlotte."via @SocImages on Twitter
Genial carta a la Empresa Lego de una niña con una fuerte conciencia de la desigualdad entre hombres y mujeres, manifestada en algo tan simple con los Legos.
"Mi nombre es Charlotte. Tengo 7 años y adoro los Legos, pero no me gusta que hayan más personajes de niños Lego y casi ninguna niña Lego. Hoy fui a la tienda y vi Legos en dos secciones: la rosada (niñas) y la azul (niños). Todo lo que hacían las niñas era estar sentada en casa, ir a la playa, de compras, pero no tenían empleos. Pero los niños vivían aventuras, trabajaban, salvaban personas y tenían empleos, incluso nadaban con los tiburones. Quiero que hagan más personajes de niñas Lego y les permitan vivir aventuras y divertirse, ok!?! Gracias."
