If you want to put your summer dinner guests into a state of bliss, this dessert-type cocktail is the answer. I was introduced to "The Hummer" by the mixologist himself at the Detroit Yacht Club. Back in the day (15 years ago) when my husband was working red-capet events for Audi he managed a regatta in Detroit. It was at that event that I met Jerome Adams, inventor of "The Hummer." The drink is famous at the club, so I had to try it. As I was pretty much going "ga ga" over the drink Jerome asked me if I wanted to learn how to make it. Wow. Amazing. What a gift. I will now pass along the recipe exactly as I received it from Jerome.
The Famous Hummer Cocktail (Kahlua, Rum, and Vanilla Ice Cream)
quality vanilla ice cream (you know it's good when you see vanilla bean flecks)
1. Fill 1/2 of the blender with ice cubes.
2. Fill the top half with vanilla ice cream.
2. With equal amount of Kahula and rum in each hand pour until the liquid reaches 1/2 way up the blender.
3. Blend until you have the most delicious adult milk shake you've ever tasted. (Adjust with ice cubes, ice cream as necessary to get ideal consistency).
