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.
