The Hummer Cocktail is an adult milkshake of epic proportions…you’ll either love me or hate me for this irresistible concoction of ice cream, rum, and Kahlua.
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.
What do you say, love or hate?
- 4 large scoops coffee ice cream
- 1 oz amber rum
- 1 oz Kahlua
- 2 ice cubes
- Blend everything in a blender just until smooth. Serve with a straw (or two)

Rum is definitely one of my favorite spirits, and I think one of the best for warm weather drinks. I love this classic rum punch cocktail for when you’re feeling flirty and fruity!
