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.

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
