Mr and Mrs Romance Friday Drinks - The Woog Cocktail

Far be it for us to pigeonhole people, Mrs Romance and I have decided to name a few cocktails we’ve made recently after some of our close blogging friends.

Mrs Woog hardly needs an introduction, she is a force in the Australian blogging community. Never beige, Mrs Woog doesn’t shy away from controversial issues but she really excels at ‘making the most out of the mundane’.

You can find her posting almost every day on her blog Woogsworld, taking the world to task on many an issue and making us all laugh along the way.

We think this well-balanced, forcible number was perfectly positioned to be The Woog; sharp yet sweet, fizzy and refreshing, The Woog is a clever mix of vodka, Chambord, bitters and Limonata – from a can, of course!

When we first made this, we both announced ‘holy shit, this is pretty fucking good!’ Profanities also in keeping with the drink’s namesake.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 measure vodka – we used Grey Goose but any good quality vodka will do
  • ½ measure Chambord, crème de mure or framboise liqueur
  • A couple of dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • A can of San Pellegrino Limonata or other fizzy bitter lemon drink
  • Mason jar
  • Ice
  • Blackberries for garnish – we used frozen berries as they’re out of season at the moment!

Here’s what you do:

  1. Pour the vodka and Chambord over ice into the Mason jar.
  2. Top up with Limonata.
  3. Add the bitters and stir together.
  4. Skewer two blackberries and balance the stick across the glass, and drop in a funky straw for good measure.

A rather fancy cocktail if I may say so! Would the Woog be better off in a lidded mason jar I ask? Saves spillages! Espec if you’ve had a few on this lovely long weekend. I like gin based cocktails and I’m a total liqueur girl too! Have a good weekend :-)

Ha ha! It is a bit fancy, isn’t it? I love using Chambord though – it’s got such a lovely rich flavour. We also love gin though – especially gin martinis and negronis. It’s funny you should mention the lid for the mason jars too. I ended up putting the lid on this one because we had to go out shortly after making the drink. Thankfully it stood the test of time no problems!

What an awesome idea for a series! Can’t wait to see the other bloggers you’re going to feature. This is so a Mrs Woog cocktail and I would love to chug one day with that sassy lady!

Glad you like it, Sonia. I hope Woogie does too! We’re working on the series – I think it’ll be fun. Mrs R is thinking of something like passionfruit fizz for you – what do you reckon?
