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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
