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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
