The Woo Woo shot is a playful and fruity concoction that's sure to put a smile on your face. Made with equal parts peach schnapps, vodka, and cranberry juice, this shot packs a sweet and tangy punch that's perfect for parties or nights out with friends.
When you take a sip of the Woo Woo shot, you'll immediately taste the juicy sweetness of the peach schnapps, which is balanced out by the tartness of the cranberry juice.
The vodka adds a subtle kick to the mix, making it just strong enough to give you a little buzz without overwhelming your taste buds.
As you swallow the shot, you'll feel a warm sensation spreading through your body - but don't worry, it's not too intense.
Instead, it's more like a gentle embrace that leaves you feeling relaxed and happy.
So if you're in the mood for something fun and fruity, give the Woo Woo shot a try - it's sure to become one of your go-to drinks!
Vodka: The star of the show, the life of the party, and the fuel to your fire. This clear and potent liquid is what gives your Woo Woo shot that extra oomph you need to get down on the dance floor. It's like your wingman - always there to back you up.
Peach Schnapps: Think of peach schnapps as the sweet-talking charmer who knows how to turn on the charm. Its fruity goodness adds a deliciously juicy peach flavor that'll have you coming back for more. It's like that friend who always knows how to lighten up any situation.
Cranberry Juice: Tart and tangy, cranberry juice is like that sassy bestie who tells it like it is. Its acidic punch cuts through the sweetness of the peach schnapps, making sure your taste buds are never bored. You can use straight cranberry juice for a less sweet drink, or cranberry cocktail for a sweeter, less bitter drink.
Together, these three ingredients form a powerhouse trio that's perfect for any occasion - from wild parties to chill nights in with friends. So go ahead and shake up some Woo Woos, because life is too short not to enjoy every sip!
See recipe card for quantities.
Start by measuring out your ingredients and adding them into a cocktail shaker. You can use ice in your shaker to cool down your shots.
But I personally feel like it waters down the taste, so I keep my ingredients chilled until I'm ready to use them.
Give your mix a gentle shake. Too much and your drink will get frothy.
Then pour your mixture into shot glasses.
You'll end up with gorgeous pink shots.
Garnish and serve!
What to Garnish With
Fresh Peach Slices: Since peach schnapps is a key ingredient in the Woo Woo shot, it only makes sense to garnish it with some fresh peach slices. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also enhance the fruity flavor of the drink.
Lemon or Lime Wedges: For an extra burst of citrusy goodness, you can add a small lemon or lime wedge to each shot glass. This also helps balance the drink's sweetness and adds a nice touch of acidity. Garnishing with a thin wedge of fresh lime is my personal favorite, the bright green looks amazing with the pink drink.
Sugar Rim: Want to make your Woo Woo shots even more festive? Dip the rim of each shot glass in some sugar for a sweet and sparkly touch. This pairs especially well if you're using real cranberry juice and not a cranberry cocktail.
Mint Sprigs: Finally, if you want to add some freshness and color to your shots, try garnishing with a sprig of mint. It's like adding a breath of fresh air to your drink!
Variations & Substitutions
Using cranberry cocktail juice will give you a sweeter drink. If you want a more bitter, less sweet drink, use pure cranberry juice.
You could also change it up and use cranberry-flavored soda.
You could also easily turn this into a woo woo cocktail just by pouring it into a larger glass.

If your ingredients are warm you can use ice in your shaker. However, you may want to skip the ice. Adding ice can dilute the flavors and intensity of the drink. Instead, try chilling your ingredients beforehand for a more robust taste experience. Your taste buds will thank you!
