This strawberry woo woo cocktail recipe can be prepared fresh or made ahead and kept in the fridge for a few hours until you're ready to pour it.

Traditionally a woo woo has just four ingredients - vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice and lime. This version has the added summeriness of strawberries, puréed down into a smooth pulp and added in. This is a great way of using up strawberries that are a little tired of bruised, or in the reduced aisle at the supermarket. Out of season, you can use frozen ones instead. This is a really great cocktail for parties because you can make it in advance and have it ready to serve people as soon as they arrive. 


  • 10 strawberries, hulled
  • 425ml cranberry juice
  • 200ml vodka
  • 100ml peach schnapps
  • A lime
  • Ice




  1. Blend the strawberries until they’re pureed. In a cocktail shaker or jug, combine with the puree with cranberry juice, vodka and peach schnapps, plus the juice of half of the lime (reserve the other half and cut into slices to garnish). 
  2. Pop in a few ice cubes to help chill the mixture and give it a shake (if using a cocktail shaker) or a stir (if using a jug).
  3. Pour through a strainer or a sieve into your serving glasses and finish with a lime slice.
