Recently a few of our readers asked if we had a recipe for a Hummingbird – a frozen rum cocktail that they enjoyed while vacationing in Jamaica. We hadn’t, but it sounded interesting, so we started searching for one. We ran across several of them – all slightly different and then made just a few small adjustments of our own. So – here’s our version of the Hummingbird. Sorry we can’t provide the beautiful Jamaican beach to go with it!

(makes two short glasses)

1 oz. gold rum (we used Appleton)
1 oz. rum cream
1 oz. coffee flavored liqueur
1 oz. cream
2 large fresh strawberries
1/2 banana
1  1/2 c. crushed ice

Add everything but the ice to a blender and mix. Add the ice and blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into a glass and garnish with a slice of banana and a strawberry, if desired.
