This should be the Wiki's choice drink.

The Wicki Wacky Woo (as it is spelled at Bar Bernardo) came on the scene in the late nineties, after a UCD Super Senior (with the last name, "Nowicki") decided to extend her superness and work many many hours at Bar Bernardo which is part of Cafe Bernardo. After several months of trying to figure out a way to give her friends the most alcohol, with the best taste, for the least cost, she came upon the now infamous WickiWackyWoo. Now the subtlely powerful drink is a rite of passage for Davisites and those turning 21. There was a long-running rumor that one could only be served two Wikis at a time, however, this has been disproven through several tests.

Starting in 2014, Bar Bernardo will have an entire week where Wicki's are the price that they were when they were first invited in 1995. Wicki Week 2014 will take place Sun 9/28/14 to Sat 10/04/14 and Wicki Wacky Woos will be $5 each.

An almost finished Wiki Wacky Woo.





From Bernardo's:

  • 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Gin
  • 1/2 oz. Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1 oz. Amaretto
  • 1 oz. Orange Juice
  • 1 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1/2 oz. 151-proof Rum in straw.

The Wicki is essentially a shot of 151 with a modified long island chaser. It contains a total of 4oz of alcohol for $8. (during the school year the “Wicki Wednesday” special begins after 9pm and they are $7) the average price for a well drink is $3 and at most places is an ounce, so if you were to drink the equivalent in vodka crans for example it would cost you $12. 3 is the limit… people rarely make it that far.

From, the Wiki Waki Woo (pronounced the same):

  • 1/2 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Bacardi 151-proof Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1 oz. Amaretto
  • 1 oz. Orange Juice
  • 1 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz. Cranberry Juice

Combine all ingredients with ice and pour into a hurricane or parfait glass. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.

From, the Waikiki Woo Woo, the same idea by another name:

  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Rum
  • 1/2 oz 151-proof Rum
  • 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Amaretto
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • 2 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Cranberry Juice
  • Crushed Ice

Combine all ingredients with ice and pour into a hurricane glass. Top with a pineapple ring, slice of orange, and cherry speared on a paper umbrella.

The 1928 jazz song Nagasaki ends each verse in a jubilant "Wiki Wacky Woo."


An unnamed person drank 1.5 servings of the WWW and invariably ran into his dwelling naked smelling of strong alcohol and holding a rose in between his teeth. -Jenn

I will never drink one of these. It looks like a suicide in all the wrong ways. - RobRoy

Amaretto is not for mixing! No matter how outrageous the drink or purpose. - BrandonKeene

I've only had the drink a few times (at Bernardo), but it does seem like they've been weaker lately. Not a high enough booze/$$ ratio. I've never liked the taste anyway. Sickeningly sweet. The traditional way to counter the taste is to just drink it all in one shot, which actually isn't that hard with the amount of ice they use these days. - CaptainRush

Back in my day, they filled the straw with 151, for an added kick. - DeniseVardakas

  • The 151-filled straw is the key to this drink. Drink the whole straw first (one shot of Bacardi) then keep drinking the cocktail. The sweetness is cut by the Bacardi aftertaste. - MattJurach
  • Yeah I was just about to ask where the 151 in the straw was... I know an alky who went to Safeway and dropped close to 2 bills on 750ml bottles of all liquor in the WWW so he could have more than 2 or 3 or whatever. The 151 in the straw is key. The WWW will get you hammered, quick. —StevenDaubert

2005-06-22 18:06:47   As a public service, perhaps we should create a booze/$$ ratio chart in the spirit of the good old pizza ratio page? —MichaelGiardina

2005-06-23 01:24:08   Sounds good to me, that could be helpful! —GeorgeLewis

2005-06-23 01:30:18   Sounds good... Ok, everyone, start going out more often to collect data, haha. —SummerSong

2005-11-06 14:25:21   It's actually spelled "wiky" not "wiki" so...yeah, should the page be renamed? —MattJojola

Where is it spelled like this?

2006-05-04 00:33:15   no way! There is no reason to imply that the wiki is not directly responsible for this concoction. :) —AllisonEriksen

2006-08-02 00:59:18   As someone who has never had a WWW, what is the name of the very rude bartender at Bernado, whose mixture is not the same? (so that I know who not to order from when go there) —AnthonyGuzzi

2006-08-23 16:01:56   I have experienced the wonderfullness of the Wiki on many an occasion, often opting for the limit of 3 wikis. I can safely say that this is a bad idea. On Wiki flavoring, it depends on the bartender. If one is looking for a Wiki of acceptable taste, go on Thursday or Saturday and talk to Adel. On Friday nights, Tom will make you a Wiki that is exceptionally strong, but tastes of bad booze. —RussellAnderson

2007-10-13 09:21:00   Really good they should make the limit 5 but the bartender on thursdays is abig nosed prick...never leave a tip


2008-01-24 23:41:37   I used to do 2 wikis in a row at 98 lbs without getting anything more than a slight buzz. O, how I miss my tolerance. —ThuHo

2008-10-14 15:01:44   oh, sweet ambrosia. . . —CurlyGirl26

2009-05-21 19:48:47   I've heard they changed the wiki recipe (less strong but more flavorful) and raised the price. Is there any truth to this desecration? —NickKory

2009-11-30 19:21:15   It is possible to get more than 3, a person I may or may not know had 7 in one sitting... the individual later broke his ankle. Not recommended. —DirtDiver

2009-12-25 19:21:21   i drank 2 of these followed by many more shots later on in the night... i woke up but naked not knowing what happened, my car was scratched up, with a girl next to me and 2 dudes on the other bed... —betabeta

2010-03-12 16:52:00   OK seriously, I work here and it's WICKY wacky woo..not wiki. It even says it quite clearly in the picture. —AJB

2010-09-08 22:26:15   I just had my first one tonight...even a flash rainstorm+$15 of food at the Dumpling House+1 Hour in Borders couldn't sober me up! I'll never have another. —ArianeMetz
