If you hear someone talking about a “Hummer” while you’re at the bar, he may not be referencing the ride he has parked outside. A Hummer is a frosty, coffee-flavored beverage that falls somewhere in between cocktail and milkshake. Coffee-flavored liqueur and vanilla ice cream come together in this beverage for an adult treat that still feeds the kid in you. If you’re looking for a drink to cool you off and indulge your sweet tooth, the Hummer is sure to please.

Things You'll Need

Place two scoops of ice cream per drink into the blender. For a milder drink, you can add a little extra ice cream or a splash of milk to suit your tastes.

Measure 1 ounce of coffee-flavored liqueur and 1 ounce of rum per drink into the blender. If you have a large blender, you can make multiple Hummers at once. If you are working with a smaller blender, you might need to prepare a single drink at a time.

Blend the ingredients on a low speed until they are just mixed. Don’t blend too fast, or for too long, or your risk ending up with a runny mess.

Pour the drink into a highball glass. Divide evenly if you made more than one Hummer in a single blender.
