The Hummer Cocktail

The Hummer Cocktail is an adult milkshake of epic proportions…you’ll either love me or hate me for this.

Either you’ve never heard of a Hummer Cocktail and after you read this you’re going to love me.

Or you already know that Hummers are the most luscious grownup version of a milkshake laced with Kahlua and rum, and you’ve been trying really really hard not to think about them, and this post will remind you, and you’ll hate me.

The original Hummer, born in Detroit in the 60s, is made with vanilla ice cream.  I’ve substituted coffee ice cream because it’s my favorite.  It deepens the flavor just a little.   You can use chocolate, too.  No coffee ice cream?  Use vanilla and add a teaspoon of instant espresso mixed with a teaspoon of water.  It’ll do the trick.

    Definitely love! I really like espresso martinis and these sound even better – creamier and more dessert like! Yum!

    So the D invented a cocktail. What do you know? I think I’d LOVE. I just bought Haagen Daas coffee ice cream the other because it only has 5 ingredients, all of which are real. I was impressed!

      I have a feeling every one of the Haagen Daas flavors would be great in this, I think I’ll experiment, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

      The D actually invented another cocktail, called “The Last Word.” We don’t just make cars here…we like to drink, too!

    Well, I have never heard of a hummer cocktail, and I just so happen to have a quarter bottle of kahlua left over from the winter holidays…I think I may know what I’m doing this weekend! :)

    Oh wow, this looks so yummy. I love coffee ice cream too and would definitely use it. I bet they go down very easy.

    That looks so delicious! My ex-husband used to make what he called a grown-up chocolate milk shake with Kahlua, chocolate liquor, Frangellico, and a touch of cream. We would beg for them every summer! I like yours a bit better because of the ice cream. I just may have to try it with both coffee and chocolate. :)

      That sounds really good, but I agree, add some ice cream! Actually I was planning to make a ‘Nutty Irishman’ version of this, with Frangelico and Bailey’s.

    How about I love to hate you for this – just kidding! Why are there two straws? What makes you think I would share this? Sounds pretty darn delicious to me. I had never heard of this but now that I have – it is stuck in the file drawer of my brain for a time when I NEED it.
