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.

That actually sounds an interesting drink! I’d never have thought of white rum with ice cream!
Thanks!!! It is the combination of the Kahlua with the ice cream and rum that made this taste so good. Of course the whipped cream didn’t hurt either. Lol
This looks good, but not being a drinker (I fall asleep!) . . .Do you drink it or use a spoon? It looks good enough that I might spoon up a bit of it to taste!
The drink itself was completely liquid. The ice cream just added flavor and coldness. So you just drink it but…..I used a spoon for the whipped cream. Lol
Oh yes!!! I thought the White Russian was good but then add ice cream!!!! Thank you!
I live in Detroit and I haven’t had this in SO long – thanks for sharing!
You’re welcome Cate! It was so simple to make.
I am so impressed that you post every day!!!! How do you do it??????
It’s not easy! On top of that I just had surgery on both my eyes two weeks in a row then Thursday got the flu!
Oh Diane, I hope your eyes are okay now. That can be nerve racking!
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. 🙂
Oh yes it was delicious!!!! You should do a post about it. I have been seeing other posts about WP problems from others. Hope they get it fixed soon. Have a great weekend Linda!
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.
Yes my husband was better in a few days but is still fighting the cough. I still don’t feel great and it’s been 10 days! Thank you Linda!
Yes, “the crud” is going around – load up on clementines and apples – they will help prevent another bout of the flu or a bad cold.
This looks awesome! Love the ice cream. Nice touch.
Thank you!! My family is already telling me they want one when they come over.
Yes. I would too!! 💕
Would make a great dessert.
Oh definitely and it tasted amazing!!! Thanks Chris!
Looks very good! 😛
You had me at ice cream . . . 🙂
Oh yes that was the best part! 🍦
Looks like a great drink 🙂

I love Kahlua. I bet this is delicious!!
It most definitely was!!!!!
I didn’t realize the hummer was regional, lol. It is delicious!!!
Yes is sure is! I will be making this again.
Looks delicious! I have never had one! May have to give it a try one day!
Very easy to make and more like dessert! Thank you Nancy!
It looks like something out of a movie! Looks amazing!
Awwww what a sweet comment Jess! Thank you!
This sounds like a combination of delicious and the possibility of making bad decisions at a party after several of these – ha! 🙂
You are so right!💖
Wickedly yummy I’ll bet!!!
Oh yes it is more like desert! 😂🤣😂
Looks divine! Of course, anything with ice cream and topped with whipped cream and a cherry looks divine!💜😂
Thanks so much!!!!
Whipped cream is “optional”? Not in my house it isn’t… 😉
Hahahaha I agree!!!
