Shudders in a Whisper

Shudders in a Whisper cocktail with aged rum, Drambuie, pear liqueur, lime juice, passion fruit syrup, Peychaud's bitters, aromatic bitters, and sparkling water

Shudders in a Whisper is from the excellent Smuggler’s Cove cocktail book, a must-have if you love inventive tropical cocktails. This one calls for Drambuie (a scotch-based liqueur) and pear liqueur, two ingredients rarely found in tiki drinks. The resulting flavor is a mystical “can’t-put-your-finger-on-it” melange of honey, pears, and fruity spice.

If you’re fresh out of seltzer, club soda, or plain sparkling water, a lightly-flavored sparkling water (citrus or passionfruit or pear) would be just fine.

Ingredients

Instructions

If you have a flash blender, blend all ingredients (including the sparkling water) with a cupful-and-a-half of crushed ice.

Otherwise, shake all ingredients (except the sparkling water) with ice, strain into a tiki mug or tall glass, add the sparkling water, and top with crushed or pebble ice.

Garnish your heart out with mint, edible flowers, lime wheels – the works.

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.
