Jerome Adams, Bayview Yacht Club | Detroit

Jerome Adams created this boozy ice cream drink in 1968 at Detroit’s Bayview Yacht Club—and he still works there to this day. The Hummer has become legendary among the sailing set, but it’s also a Michigan staple inland, where it’s served in plastic party cups in backyards around the state. (In fancier restaurants you’ll often find it in a wine glass, topped with whipped cream.)


Serving: 1

  • 1 1/2 ounces white rum, preferably Bacardi Light
  • 1 1/2 ounces Kahlua
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender, add two ice cubes and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a rocks glass.
