Woo-Hoo’s for Woo-Woo’s

Brian Miller from WaystationOne was the first to want to know about woo-woo’s. You may have seen woo-woo’s mentioned in this week's Sunday 160 and in comments left by Thom from Thom’s Place 4 Well Whatever … In one moment of weakness, I exposed myself and my foible to Thom and like a really good friend he will not allow me to forget it. :)

The Story:

A long time ago, when I was a young whipper snapper and still hanging out in clubs to meet men, I was introduced to woo-woo’s. A dashing fellow with slicked back hair saw me sitting alone at the bar and knew I needed the company of a charmer. He ordered me a woo-woo and a night I can’t remember was had by all.

The Drink (serves 1):

1 1/2 oz peach schnapps
1 1/2 oz vodka
8 oz cranberry juice

And the variation:

Blue-woo

1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 oz blueberry schnapps
8 oz cranberry juice

Serve these in tall glasses over ice and let the memory loss begin.

Drink responsibly - drink alone at home.

  10. If I were a drinker I'd be all over this. These days I only drink the occasional glass of wine pressed into my hands by friends and family. And even then I might not finish it. Just not my thing.

  12. Jingle: Lessons that might not be good to learn.

    Alice Audrey: Don’t tell anyone because it might ruin my image, but I often go for minutes without a drink.

    Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog?: Memory loss always hints at a good time.

  21. sounds like a good way to get lost (as if i needed an incentive)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sounds WOOHOOish!! :)
    And thanks for the warning as well ;)

  23. That does sound yummy and dangerous.

    Hmm, I had a similar night on something called a "release valve." Dunno exactly what's in it, but it was soooo good. Pineapple juice and grenadine were ingredients, and I'm sure there must have been vodka. I never tasted the alcohol--and didn't know what hit me.

  24. I don't ever remember drinking anything that tasted like that but I remember I night...no wait, I don't. Never mind.

  25. The kamikaze is to me what the woo-woo is to you. A great memory relaxer. Bottom's up!

  28. Eric Alder: I played. Check back next Tuesday for the posting.

    juliana: It’s been a while since I needed an excuse.


    kavisionz: They are very dangerous. They need a warning label.

    actonbell: You found the exact problem – they are so tasty but you can’t taste the alcohol.

    63mago: As we all should.

    Cheryl: It’s like a magic potion that wipes your mind clean.

    SandyCarlson: Oh, kamikazes. Do I have a kamikaze story. They go really well with my G & T’s which are my favorite drink.

    karen a.: Were you there?

    Kiki: Remembering the good times is good for grins and giggles.

  29. Woooo-wooo! And here I was thinking a woo-woo was sort of like a Ring Ding. Silly me. No wonder you like camping so much!

    And I have a couple of kamikaze stories myself.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Alice Audrey: Me and my silliness.

    PattiKen: Ring Dings for adults. And kamikazes are suicide ;)
