Congratulations friends, you just survived your first week of classes! And yeah, you probably didn’t have any real work to do, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a cause for celebration. So gather your floor/suitemates together for some good ol’ community building—Drinking with Bwog will take care of the libations. This week, the Columbia Bartending Agency’s managing director Elliott Grieco will show you how to make a Wuwu (we promise the name will sound even funnier when you’re drunk).

This could be you, but in EC.

When you’re bonding with friends, a round of Wuwus is always a good way to lighten the mood and rally up some esprit de corps. It’s fruity and super simple to make. And unlike some more complicated cocktails, you really can’t go wrong.


1 oz. vodka
½ oz. peach schnapps
½ oz. cranberry juice

Mix the vodka, schnapps, and cranberry juice (in a 2:1:1 ratio, for the measurement-challenged) in an ice-filled Boston shaker, and serve the mixture into standard size shot glasses.

Conveniently, this drink is nothing if not versatile—with only the addition of orange juice, you’ll be completely stocked to make a Sex on the Beach, a Fuzzy Navel, a Hairy Navel, or a Cape Codder (a.k.a. “Cranberry Vodka”).

Still, a brief note of caution: even though it doesn’t taste strong, a single WuWu shot contains roughly the same amount of alcohol as a beer or glass of wine, so…just don’t be stupid, okay?
