    Hi, I am Josh Dubois. Today, we are making Vodka Drinks. Right now, I am going to show you how to make a Woo Woo. Now, a Woo Woo is a recently popular drink and I am not exactly sure where name comes from, but it is probably because you go Woo Woo after you drink it.

    You are going to want to make this drink in a highball glass and you are going to want to fill up the highball glass to the tip top with ice to chill your beverage all the way through.

    Now, a Woo Woo consists of Vodka and peach schnapps and cranberry juice. The reason that we serve it in a highball glass is because it has a lot more liquor in it, than just a regular like rum and coke, whisky coke.

    It actually, has about one and half times that amount of liquor in it. So, you are going to want to serve it in a bigger glass to give yourself a little bit more fruit to actually, make the drink taste a little bit better. So, what you are going to do is you are going to take a four count of vodka or two ounces vodka; you are going to want to take one ounce of peach schnapps or a two count. Then, you are going to fill the rest of the glass with cranberry juice. We are going to serve this drink with a straw. That is how you make a Woo Woo. Next, I am going to show you make a Bay Breeze and a Sea Breeze.
