Woo Woo Cocktail Recipe
To discover the history of the Woo Woo drink, we must first look to it's ancestor, the Sex on the Beach cocktail. The origin behind this one is varied, but the most popular one is attributed to, who was a Florida bartender in the 1980's. He came up with this concoction as a way to promote peach schnapps and named it after “sex” and “the beach” which he considered to be the two main attractions of Spring Break.
The original drink was made using peach schnapps, vodka, orange juice and grenadine. However, it is much more common to see bars serving it with cranberry juice, to replace the grenadine. This cocktail has been reworked many times, with the Woo Woo possibly being the most popular derivative, simply without the orange juice.
The Woo Woo cocktail recipe also dates back to the 80's, but it's still extremely popular today.
