One of the more ridiculously named cocktails out there, this is called a Woo Woo. Yes, you heard me correctly. What is it? Well, it’s a three ingredient cocktail with a goofy name that tastes great, which is all that matters really!

All I can tell you about this cocktail is that it’s apparently from the 1980’s which shouldn’t surprise anyone given the goofy name it goes by. There’s not much else to say about it other than that.

How do you make a Woo Woo cocktail?

Making a Woo Woo is pretty straight forward, you’ll need vodka, cranberry juice and peach schnapps. Combine these ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake until cold and pour into a glass with ice. For garnishes, I recommend a lime slice but you could also pierce a couple of cranberries on a toothpick or drop some into the glass to give it a different look.

Regardless of how you serve it up, I’m sure you’ll find this as refreshing as it looks. I’m all about serving up the simplified cocktails lately given the situation the world is in and I think the less ingredients required, the more likely people will be able to make and enjoy them. If you like refreshing drinks, I also recommend trying my Cape Cod Cocktail and my Pimm’s Cup recipes.

The Glassware

Normally I’m known for my fancy glassware but today I served these up in my everyday drinking glasses because I haven’t used them yet and there’s not much to tell you about them (other than they are Libby and I bought them at Canadian Tire, lol). I simply liked the shape of them. If you like them, here’s the (non-affiliate) link to them.

Hope you enjoy the drink!

    Thanks for the recipe! It sounds really good to me and best of all it’s easy for a dinner party-especially since I have the food to think about. Could this be made in a large spouted glass drink dispenser with ice in it? Should I float some limes in it? Having a nighttime dinner/bbq and looking for an easy crowd-pleasing drink. Any tips on sizing it up would be appreciated! Thanks again!
