Detroit Hummer Drink

Have you ever been to Detroit and tried the Hummer? It is a drink made with Kahlua, ice cream, rum, ice and topped with whipped cream and a cherry on top. According to http://www.punchdrink.com this boozy drink was created by Jerome Adams in 1968 at Detroit’s Bayview Yacht Club. The Hummer has become legendary among the sailing set but it is also a Michigan staple inland, where it is served in plastic party cups in backyards around the state. In fancier restaurants it is served in wine glasses and topped with whipped cream.

My dear blogging friend Linda told me about this delicious drink. Check out her blog by clicking her name.

  1. Thank you for the shout out Diane … this looks delicious and it has been years since I sipped one – in fact the infamous tablecloth incident I told you about was likely the last time. I should write a post about it and link to here so they can see how to make one. So was it everything you anticipated (and more?) P.S. – I am having some problems with WordPress today. I did a post this morning and it has not showed up in Reader for some reason – the Happiness Engineers are working on the problem … maybe I need a Hummer in the meantime. πŸ™‚

      • I’ll have to figure out how I can wiggle it into a post somehow – it sure did look delicious and wasn’t I right that it tastes like dessert? I am doing another post for Tuesday about the same day I walked and had multiple problems yesterday while drafting it and other bloggers said yesterday’s post did not show up in Reader.

      • Yes it was definitely like a dessert! I can’t believe they haven’t fixed things for you yet! I am a week behind in my comments because in the last two weeks I have had surgery on both eyes then two days after the last surgery I caught the flu. I have been flat on my back since Thursday and so sick. My grandson started it and this is the first year in a long time I haven’t had the flu shot…ugh! However, my hubby had the shot and got really sick too but it isn’t lasting as long.

      • Sorry to hear that Diane – you thought since you weren’t working you would not need it? I know you’d be tempted to do that, but kids pick up germs as they aren’t good about keeping their hands away from their face and the grandkids are with you a lot – sigh. Hope your eyes are better as well – what a week you had – take care of yourself. It is still not too late to get a flu shot – as soon as you recover, go for it.
