Hitler’s Jitters

Hitler's Jitters cocktail with lime juice and creme de cocoa

This simple twist on the classic daquiri comes to us from Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, one of the world’s foremost exports in Tiki cocktail culture. He dug up this old recipe for his book Potions of the Carribean. If you love tiki cocktails, you must have that book.

This drink may have named in an effort to amuse the American oil men patronizing the hotel bars of Venezuela in the 1930s. It must not have worked all that well – the recipe may well have been lost to history if it wasn’t for Berry digging it up more than 80 years later. Seriously – buy Potions of the Carribean! We can’t recommend it enough.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
