A Woo Woo is an alcoholic beverage consisting of vodka, peach schnapps, and cranberry juice.
A bold, brash drink that’s not to everyone’s tastes, this vodka-fruit flavor carrier is a surprising hit with guests. Arising from a desire by bartenders in the late 70s to turn their back on the whole weighty tradition of Manhattans, Slings and Sazeracs. It is a simple, showy cocktail that has balanced sweet and sour fruit flavors – peach and cranberry – on a base of delicious vodka.
The Woo Woo is very much of its time – that brief period when daft cocktail names were not even an option, but a necessity. We had Sex on the Beach, Fuzzy Navel (switch out the cranberry juice for orange juice and remove vodka) and Mudslide, all cult classics that some bartenders are celebrating once again. And there are occasions when the Woo Woo cocktail really hits the mark – at barbecues, house parties, housewarming events, and those fun times with friends.
