A peachy spin on the classic Vodka Cranberry, this Woo Woo drink is fruity and flirty. Even saying its name is fun! The bright red hue makes it perfect for entertaining and festive to dress up for any event.

Woo Woo Ingredients

Making this beautiful, playful drink at home requires just three common cocktail ingredients. For the ingredient measurements, see the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • Vodka: The flavor of vodka will be somewhat masked by the other ingredients, but it is still helpful to use one that you like. Our go-to is Tito’s.
  • Peach schnapps: A super-sweet peach-flavored liqueur, also used in the refreshing White Tea Shot.
  • Cranberry juice: We recommend using 100% cranberry juice for this cocktail, not a juice blend.

How to Make a Woo Woo

This cocktail is a quick “shake and strain” recipe, so it comes together easily as outlined here. For the full recipe and ingredient measurements, scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page.

  • Combine ingredients. Add vodka, peach schnapps, and cranberry juice to a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Shake well. Give it a good shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker is gold. Strain into a glass.
  • Garnish and enjoy! Add a lime wedge if you want to garnish your drink.

How to Serve

This fruity cocktail can be served a few different ways. The first is in a martini glass, as shown here. It can also be served in a highball glass with ice. Finally, you can make it into a shot (see more on how to make this below). Garnish your cocktail with a lime wedge. I like to squeeze the wedge into my cocktail for an extra citrus punch!

Make This Drink Into a Shot

A third way this drink can be served is as a shot, also known as a Baby Woo Woo. For this recipe, you will use the same ingredients as the full cocktail, but you will use equal amounts of each of the three ingredients. Here is the recipe for one shooter:

  • Combine 1/3 ounce vodka, 1/3 ounce peach schnapps, and 1/3 ounce cranberry juice in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Shake well and strain into a shot glass.
  • Shoot and enjoy!
