Local lore has it here on the east coast of NC that this drink originated from a well-known and respected headboat captain, Capt. Jimmy “Woo Woo” Harker of the Carolina Princess. Capt. Woo Woo passed away in 2006 and is a legend in our fishing community. From the stories I’ve heard, Capt. Woo Woo wasn’t known as a drinker, but drank peach schnapps and cranberry juice on social occasions. The cocktail became to be known as a “Woo Woo” locally.
I googled “Woo Woo Cocktail” and most of the recipes I saw incorporated vodka into the recipe. I also didn’t see any reference to Capt. Woo Woo, so this is my tribute to him and his many years of dedication as a respected fisherman.
I recently received a bottle of peach vodka from the nice folks at Pinnacle. When I opened the package my friend said, “You have to make a Woo Woo but leave out the peach schnapps!”.
My oh so simple variation of this cocktail is Pinnacle Peach Vodka, cranberry juice (I used low-calorie and couldn’t taste the difference!) and club soda. Proceed with caution and drink responsibly… this is one of those that you can’t taste any alcohol in. Cheers!
